Over the past few weeks I’ve been disciplined about writing in my gratitude journal. While I drink my coffee in the morning I take note of five things I am especially grateful for from the previous day. It might be gratitude for time with family, gratitude for the Equitas team, gratitude for running injury free, or even gratitude for an awesome peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This past weekend I didn’t post my regular Sunday afternoon post because Brent and I had to take a sudden trip to Dallas for his grandfather’s funeral. Funerals are never fun, but having the time to re-connect with family, share stories and celebrate life is priceless. This past weekend there were no trail runs, no Lululemon, just a few lousy miles on a treadmill because it’s already 90+ degrees in Dallas. I didn’t get my running fix, but it didn’t matter. I left the weekend with tremendous gratitude for life, health and family. I have so much to be thankful for in my life. I’ll be back with more this weekend.
