Today started out as one of those days when its hard to focus on the things to be thankful for, but thankfully, I chose to find the good!
I went to the gym today. Its the first time since the Mud Run that I have done any exercise at all. Yep, after I hurt my knee, I became complacent. After visiting with our scales last night, I decided today was the day. For the very first time, I tried Zumba. Love it!! It is so much fun- and who knew this girl had those kind of moves? No one there. Trust me. One thing I was very thankful for today is that Zumba is so fast-paced that nobody has time to look around at anyone else!
When I arrived home is when the trouble started. My house was trashed. I was not in the mood, as we just cleaned the house yesterday! I mean seriously, what are these people thinking??? I soon became very thankful for my oldest son, J. He realized how stressed I was getting and put his rear in high gear and started putting things back to order. What he did today is completely out of character for him. I just love that young man.
The third thing I am thankful for is music. I love music. I am not prejudice either. I like music from just about any genre. If you were to see the playlist on my ipod, you wouldn't be able to tell a thing about me. Music is so emotional, it goes deep. I don't know why. Some things I am perfectly happy not knowing. No matter what my mood is, I can find music to fit the bill! We often- like tonight- have music playing quite loudly as we are preparing dinner. We dance, sing and have a great time!!
I am thankful that tomorrow is the day we get to worship our Maker and Redeemer together with others- I love Sundays.
