Several of my blogger friends have decided to start a 30 day of Thanks on their blogs.
Always a Reason to Run has put out an invitation for us all to follow!
Here is what she wrote:
"Last year, during the month of November, I completed 30 days of Thanks on my blog. I am going to start it up again today. Everyday during November, I am going to post about one thing I am thankful for: it can be serious, silly or simple. I have so many reasons to be grateful; I want to share the gratitude. I invite you to try it on your blog, too."
Since I missed Day 1 & 2, I will make them short and sweet:
1. I am Thankful that my hubby found a good job. Even if it is in a different city away from what we have always known! It's the journey together that is making it enjoyable!
2. I am Thankful for cool weather! I love the cold! I am hoping to see snow this year, even though all of the weather men say we won't his year.
Now for today!
I am Thankful for being unemployed. I know this is something strange to be thankful for, but I know that God has a plan for me! I believe that He knew I needed a break and I needed more time for Him. To be in His Word and just listen. I have had 2 weeks of this and know that it truly has been for the best. I don't take change well and being able to have this time to get used to my new city and make my apartment feel more like home, has been a true blessing.
As for my run today, I ran down the sidewalks of my apartment again. 2 miles today! I just couldn't get my body to go anymore. The sun was also setting, so I was trying to make it back before all the crazies came out. HaHa :) I'm still not completely comfortable with random people walking down the street, and even though I do carry mace, I don't want to be out in the dark with them! :) I am thinking about doing my Friday run tomorrow, and my Saturday "long" run on Friday. My hubby has the weekend off and I want to spend the whole weekend with him! :) I will let you know how that goes!
* Will you be able to join in the 30 Days of Thanks?
* Do you like running in the dark down your street?
