Thankful Thursday Mushy Gushy style!

Two posts in one day.
I know.
I am an overachiever and I love myself.
Get over it.
Linking up with the fucking gorgeous {yes, I just said that} Jenna for Thankful Thursday.

{one}  Probably the most obvious thing of all.
I am thankful for my beautiful family.

I know right...
How I got so lucky I will never know but God has blessed me more than I could have ever dreamed.
My Husband is my walkin' talkin dream come true.
I used to lay up at night and pray for him and wonder where he was and what he was doing.
I am pretty confident that he is thankful to have me, too.
He can't keep his hands off of me most days after all ;)
My beautiful children.
They are amazing, funny, kind, and just all around crazy kids that definitely keep me on my toes.
Are we perfect?  Is our life perfect?
But it is my perfect and I go to bed every night and wake up every morning thankful for the four of them.
{two}  I am thankful for my parents.
They have raised me to be the awesome person I am today after all =)
And not only to my biological parents but to my amazing step-momma as well.
Thanks for always loving me like I was your very own.
{three}  For the one person on the planet who will always get me.
There is nobody else in life I can truly consider my PIC aka partner in crime.
You make me smile when I want to cry.
The only one that I can get mad at and laugh at all at the same time.
You truly are my best friend.

{four}  For my wake up call.
For my ability to see that what I was doing to myself was only hurting me.
To realize that there are plenty of people right now, my poor Pawpaw specifically, that would give anything to be able to walk a mile let alone run a mile.
I am thankful for my health.
For my ability to run.
For my constant strive to be better and never give up.
It hasn't happened over night and my journey is far from over but I am proud to look back and see just how far I have come.
{five}  For this blog and the friendships I have made.
Honestly I can't even begin to type all the names.
There are too many but just know that I love every single one of you.
You guys are my daily inspiration and my cheerleaders.
You always make me feel like rock star status especially on the days where I want nothing more than to throw in the towel and call it quits.
When I started blogging a little over three years ago I had no idea what I was doing.
I had no idea where it would take me.
I am happy to be where I am now.
So thanks for this little space of the Internet and all of you that I can call my friends!
