Good Morning! It’s Thankful Thursday!

And I’m as thankful as ever. How about you? Are you still hangin’ with me on this adventure?!? I hope so! 

Earlier this week I was reminded of a quote that says - Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.

Thankfulness is the same. It doesn’t simply happen to us. We have to choose to be thankful. And keep choosing it every day.

Choosing to be thankful for the ordinary-

The sunrise

Fresh air

Clean water

Morning coffee

Great Family

Good Friends

A comfortable home

Puppy kisses

Choosing to be thankful for the extraordinary-

A beautifully brilliant sunrise over the ocean

Fresh morning air that smells like the dew

Clean, cool water on a hot summer day

Morning coffee, just the way you like it

Great family members who love you unconditionally

Good friends who share some of the best laughs and greatest adventures of your life

A warm, comfortable home filled with all the people that you love most

Puppy kisses from your favorite fur-babies

Choosing to see the ordinary as extraordinary.

Choosing to be thankful.


Years ago, I traveled for work. A lot. Like I amassed over 1 million miles, a lot. That time away from home forever changed the ordinary things I am most thankful for everyday. And that thankfulness makes me see those ordinary things as extraordinary. From the sunrise to the coffee.

I am so very thankful.

What are you most thankful today?
