I was pretty down and just all around feeling blah yesterday. I knew that the rainy weather here probably played a big part in that and a lot of people are probably feeling that same way this week in New England. Don’t you hate that, when you just can’t shake that “blah” feeling?
Anyway, I woke up this morning feeling pretty much the same way, but somehow got myself out of bed for a brief run. Had it been down-pouring at the time, I probably wouldn’t have gone, but it was just sprinkling. I did my typical warm up walk and then started to run and then it POURED for the rest of my run, but I actually loved every minute of it. It was just a fun and peaceful run, I guess that’s the best way to put it. I only ended up doing 2.5 miles since I was drenched and not really dressed appropriately for the temperature, but I’m sure I could have kept going. Ben was still sleeping when I got back so naturally I offered him a nice wet hug. He wasn’t interested.
I don’t know what it was about the run, but I just felt a lot less blah when I was done. Maybe it sounds cheesy, but I was thankful for the run in the rain and I want to remember to be thankful for other things too, does it help you to look back on what you are thankful for when you have that “blah” feeling? I don’t know for me, but I’m going to try. Here goes…
Besides being thankful for my run in the rain…
I am SO thankful for the family and friends that God has blessed me with, I cannot say that enough.
I’m thankful that Ben and I have found a church community that we love and belong to and that continually reminds us of God’s presence in our lives.
I’m thankful for the time this week I had catching up with some of my best friends, Jaime and Kristen, and meeting baby Zoe for the first time.
Gourmet grilled cheese, creamy tomato soup & brownies, yum!
What are you thankful for this week?
