Guess what day it is?!?! It’s Thursday. What did you think I was gonna say?
When I worked for the fire department I found myself often working on the holidays. As a result holidays stopped being holidays and instead it was just “Thursday”. Things are a little different this year, my new job allows me to spend this Thanksgiving with my family, something I am very thankful for. This got me thinking about all the other crazy changes that have happened in my life this past year and how many more things I have to be grateful for.
I am thankful to have a job. I am grateful that job is doing something I love. I grateful that at my job I am surrounded by so many amazing people that keep me coming back.
I am thankful for the men and women, like Cpl McGhee, who serve this country. They are away from their families and loved ones fighting so that I may be with mine.
I am thankful for the LEOs and EMS providers who serve their communities. They too are away from their families and loved ones. They are at the ready and prepared to be there for you, should the need arise.
I am thankful for my orthopedic surgeon and my physical therapist. I am grateful they understood what activities I was passionate about and provided their care accordingly. I am grateful I am physically capable of doing all the activities I love and then some without pain.
I am thankful I was blessed with sweet, sweet dance moves. I am grateful I am often moved by the music and feel compelled to bust them out for all to enjoy.
I am thankful for a healthy, furry, four legged companion that has not once cease to greet me at the door and let me know I was missed. He also has not once cease to let me know he should be promptly fed at 7:30 in the morning, so I guess I am also thankful for my built in alarm clock.
I am thankful for my family, friends, and boyfriend who have spent the last year supporting every thing I have done. From surgery to changing jobs, I’ve had to call on a lot of people, and they all answered. Thank you.
I am thankful for Arnicare cream. So I kind of bruise like a peach, combine that with the CrossFit lifestyle and my body looks like I actually belong to a fight club (let’s be honest though, if I was in a fight club I couldn’t tell you about it, rule number 1). My most recent self inflicted injury involved a barbell to the forehead. Thank you sweet, blessed Arnicare cream for making sure I didn’t look like I was growing a horn.
I’m thankful for post-its. I can’t remember anything, they are so convenient to write on and stick anywhere so I never forget.
I am thankful for James P. Whitmire esq. He can always be counted on to read the WOD blog and leave a comment. The jury is out as to whether or not I am always thankful for his comments but it is always nice to know the blog is read.
I’m sure you all have something you are thankful for, we would love to hear about it. Give thanks in the comments, no better day to do so.
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Chanukah. . . Happy Thanksgivukkah!!!
