For the last 3 years, our family has participated in a local turkey trot (Hubby actually runs it, I don’t- he only does 2 races a year, so I let him have that one… boo..) but this year, Hubby put off his registration and the trot got stuffed! All sold out!
Feeling somewhat recovered from the gluttony that is Thanksgiving, I can finally sit back and consider all the blessings that surround me- and what a great feeling that is! Rather than feeling full of food, I feel full of love, happiness, and optimism for the impending new year. (Usually, I’m not quite so sappy but we had such a great Thanksgiving that I just can’t help it!)
Foremost, I am thankful for my amazing family- these are the people that I love unconditionally and give meaning to my life. My husband, my children, and my in-laws are the ones I know I can count on and vice versa. In my life, family comes first and I am so lucky to be surrounded by so much love.
