thankful thursday

by Danica on November 1, 2012

This week I’m joining Jessie in her linkup of Thankful Thursday posts…It’s a great idea, especially since Thursdays are my absolute most dreaded days of the week :/

Today I’m thankful for…

  • our godson Preston…he turns 1 year old today!  My husband and I love him more than I can explain.  How does that little face not make melt though…
    Happy Birthday to the cutest little lion!
  • my workouts…As part of the last week in the October Yoga Challenge, I only completed 2 sessions of yoga and didn’t quite meet my goal of 3.  It’s a little disappointing I suppose, but I still had a lot of other great workouts, and because of this past month, I’ve realized how much I love what yoga does for my body.
  • a job to go to each day…it’s so much work and I’m not at all excited for it today, but I know that I’m very very blessed to have a steady job–there are many people who don’t have such a thing.  I have to make my attitude about it positive because my whole day will reflect that!
  • friends…a couple of our friends brought pizza over last night, and after eating, we just hung around talking and watching Hocus Pocus (<–somehow Jesse has never seen this movie before?!) and the new episode of Modern Family.  It was relaxing and just a lot of fun :)
  • those who are volunteering in the East…just hearing about Sandy and all of its damage is terrifying.  I’m constantly praying for everyone affected and I admire all of the people who are heading that direction to help with recovery efforts.  It honestly makes me appreciate my warm home that much more…
  • my husband…and the fact that we get to have a date night tomorrow night.  He doesn’t know about it yet, but I’m going to make sure it happens :)
What are you thankful for today?

Ha, I too have never seen Hocus Pocus! I’m just gonna say it has to deal with the fact that both of our names are Jesse :)

Awe, surprise dates are the best. I’ve been thinking about surprising mine with one either tonight or tomorrow as well.

Have a great day hunnie & thank you so much for linking up :)

Hocus Pocus is really a pretty bad movie haha it was just the classic Halloween movie when we were kids so it was surprising that he hadn’t ever seen it! :)

Hocus Pocus is too funny! I am so thankful to have a great family around me. Great friends and just the ability to laugh!
I heard the best thing the other day….”if it has no baring on tomorrow, then let it go.”

Hey, you may not have met your yoga goals, but you still figured out the benefits of yoga and how it makes you feel, which is great! :)
Thanks so much for joining in!!

Thanks for hosting–it was fun to join in! It always helps me a lot to have a more formal commitment like that to stick to my goals :)
