Many thinngs to appreciate and share...

- Stephanie's awesome new Apr 27 C25K/Warrior Dash goal, relighting my enthusiasm for my Apr 21 10K trail race (I have never done this distance even in training & have also started an 8 wk program)
- stopping to realize how amazing it is that my body runs and jumps and skips and revels in it, when I think back to to my health and the shape I was in 5-6 yrs ago
- an amazing vet
- sunshine and nice weather
- a call from old kickboxing friend and new baking order

I am grateful for the blessing of a wonderful gathering at church - there were lots of people there. The meeting went well. If all goes well, we will be actually interviewing a person we hope to select as our new minister next Saturday evening. He is scheduled to spend the day touring the area and then have dinner with us and a service so we can see his style of preaching. At the moment it is the MOST hopeful we have been for some time.

I am decidedly grateful today!

- sunshine as I look out the window
- light traffic and smooth drive ...good thing as we'd overslept!
- feeling excellent after my short fast run last night and proud that I pushed myself
- I was debating internally trying a spinning class but was intimidated and coworker invited me to a "charity spin" that he is leading on Sat am at our gym - cool!
- scale delivering "status quo" news this morning,... which compared to a big gain, is actually a nudge of encouragement forward... given my emotional binge eating this week
- an insightful a-ha moment on above mentioned issue
- it's Friday and a pleasant weekend with Monday off from work awaits me!
- we are another week closer to spring....

emoticon Sincere gratitude empowers you to focus on the positive aspects of life, and develops into greater awareness and appreciation of the overlooked, often misinterpreted, and ever so important little blessings that make up this experience we call life.

Please join me in posting 5 things you appreciate each day. I will be here with my 5 when it is March for me.
