Gratitude is often touted as being über-important. And it is. And I am. So I thought I'd start a theme on Thursdays with this topic in mind. I am thankful for so many things, the majority of which are simple, but priceless. Here are a few on my mind today.
I am thankful for my legs that allow me to walk daily, 5 km, aka 3 miles is what I aim for, sometimes it's a little more, sometimes a little less. I am so thankful to be able to walk a different route every day, which seems kind of "duh" for those who live in towns or cities, but we have spent 24 of the past 26 years in the country on small 1-3.5 acre lots. Great running room for the dogs, but only one loop of a road in the subdivision.

I am also so thankful that I am no longer working full-time, and that I can enjoy slow easy days such as this much-longed-for one.
Yesterday I sent a prayer of thanks out into The Universe : -) for my health. Getting up in the mornings feeling fine, having the ability to move easily, exercising whether by walking, playing pickleball, or doing yoga, appreciating my flexibility and strength in yoga all mean a lot as I (gulp) acknowledge the fact that I am not getting younger. However, I'll never be as young as I am today, right?
What are you thankful for today?
