Gratitude check

Closing out the weekend and preparing for the new week with a gratitude check. Thanks to this weekend, I’m grateful for:

  • Two strong runs — even in this unreasonable heat (above photo was taken during today’s run)
  • Almost a full day spent with my younger son — and the fact that he still enjoys hanging out with with his mom
  • An afternoon spent at the neighborhood pool — and the triumph of not letting self-consciousness get in the way of doing so
  • Knocking out some chores that I’ve been putting off
  • Air conditioning
  • Half-marathon training with a running partner and accountability buddy. This is new for me and I must say that it makes training soooo much easier.
  • Answered prayer
  • A really good book
  • Daily communication with both of my boys
  • Did I mention air conditioning?
  • Feeling the benefits of building healthier eating habits
  • Fresh cherries and other summer produce offerings
  • Texts from my older son with examples of his latest creative work
  • My hometown and all of its amazing offerings — especially Forest Park (shown above)
  • “I saw this and thought of you” texts from friends
  • And…. air conditioning

Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed week.
