Thankful Thursdays (Link Up!)...

I heard once that people who who make an effort to be thankful for the good things in their lives are the happiest people, and I really think it must be true. 

So I'm going to start a link-up party every Thursday morning for those of you who, like me, like to count your blessings.  They can be silly or sincere or a totally random assortment of things that make you smile (ahem, Pinterest) - just link them up (or shout them out in a comment), and we can all have a feel-good moment each Thursday.  Because, let's face it - the day before Friday usually sucks... Thursday needs all the help it can get. :)

So here are my thankfuls on this lovely Thursday morning...

{I'm thankful} that I'm finally feeling a little better.  I got a strange strep-like virus on Monday night and have been pretty useless since then.  Mostly I'm thankful that I feel good enough to run again tonight.  I haven't run since Sunday evening, and with my first 5K coming up in a month (eek!), I need all the training time I can get!


{I'm thankful} that I remembered about the Amazon Prime Lending Library - I can re-read Hunger Games for free on my Kindle!  (Although I'm not so thankful that I ended up staying up until 1:30 a.m. last night starting and finishing the first book again.  I'm a sleepy girl today.)

{I'm thankful} for blackberries.  Delish.

{I'm thankful} that I get to see my sweet niece this weekend. Is she not the cutest thing you've ever seen?


{I'm thankful} for grace.

And, lastly, {I'm thankful} for this guy.



He's the best decision I've ever made.  (Plus, he's ridiculously handsome.)

Happy Thursday, y'all.  Make it a good one!

Good luck on your 5k. The first one that I ran wasn't that bad. Actually, when I turned the last corner and saw the finish line, I thought "Really, that's it?". You'll be great!

Hope you're over the strep. That's one of the worst ways to be sick. I'd put off running for another week if it was up to me :) I want to try a 5K soon too.

I don't have anything to link, so I'll just "shout it out" in a comment. :)
First, really good idea for a Thankful Thursday! Sometimes I think we just expect, expect, expect from God and don't take the time to count the blessings He's already laid upon us.
Anywho, I'm thankful for a lot of things, but the primary ones are my husband, friends, family, and job!
Also, just a side note. It was really nice finding your blog. I really enjoy reading it.
