A day of thanks

I hope everyone is having a great time with their family and friends this Thanksgiving.  A rarity, I cooked.  What I discovered is that I am not very enthusiastic about preparing the meal BUT I am a very tidy cook.  We are definitely going out next year.

Pausing to reflect on the past year, I am grateful for many things.

My children have amazing Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and cousins that love them and make their lives full of fun and joy.

We have amazing friends in our community.  Many of them share our enthusiasm for swimming and we have created a community of supporting each other as well as our own children.

Our community schools are amazing and our children are afforded great educations through them.  We have incredible teachers.

Finally, we have the greatest coaches – both in soccer and in swimming.  Not a day goes by that I don’t feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the people who care about my children success as much as we do.

I am especially happy that we are a family who are all committed to exercise, fitness and wellness.  Something we often take for granted.   Today and every day I am thankful for all that I have.

And tomorrow I will not be adding to all that we have.  I would rather pay double than shop on Black Friday.

Enjoy your thanksgiving.
