Momentum Monday: Thankful

Monday already? How quickly that weekend flew by! It tends to be that way doesn't it? Especially now with the holidays approaching, it feels like my calendar is filling up quicker and quicker! So much to do and seemingly, so little time!

Even though I can complain about the fact that I have less time to relax and my schedule is always full, I should be thankful for the friends and family that I get to spend this time with. My schedule fills up during this time of year for a reason, there are people in my life that want to spend these special moments with me and create memories we will look back on and smile about. Create time and space where we can make memories that make us laugh and reminisce for years to come. 

We are approaching the time of year where we all try to remember to be thankful for all that we have, for all that we are and all that we give and share with others. This month will be filled with football gatherings and pumpkin carvings parties. November will be filled with baby showers (my own included! GAH! Is the baby time that close for me to be having a shower already?!?), more football and my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving.

So in light of all that will be coming in the next few weeks, I wanted to offer this Momentum quote to everyone.



There is so much to be thankful for in this world. I am increasingly thankful for all the love and support I've received over this year from family and my friends, both local, across the country and through the internet. I am thankful for the blessing of running and all the opportunities it has afforded me, I have had the most incredible year filled with so many wonderful memories because of running, I can't even begin to express my gratitude. I am thankful for the triumphs and tribulations I have encountered this year, for without each of them I could not appreciate the other. And I am especially thankful for all of you out there reading along. My words are brought to life when they are read and I thank you for supporting and encouraging me with your presence.

Now it's your turn: I know it's not Thanksgiving yet, but it doesn't have to be that time to be thankful, so tell me now, what is it that you are thankful for?
