30 Days of Thanks (Day 1)

I am going to try and keep up with this challenge... 30 Days of Thanks. There is so much to be thankful for, it's time I put it down in writing!

Day One: My Parents

Who isn't thankful for the parents? Mine are no exception. They are amazing, loving people that have been extremely supportive in everything I do. They've known when to push me when I needed it most. They've given me and my two younger sisters everything we needed. I can thank them for encouraging me to start running and finding a love of being active. My parents have done a couple marathons, and whole lot of half marathons all over the US. As I have grown up, I have realized that my close relationship with my parents isn't something that everyone has, and I am very very thankful.

What are you thankful for today?

I love this idea...and would totally copy you, but I can barely blog twice a week right now, let alone 30 days in a row...so I'll just go with yours.

I am definitely on the so thankful for my parents bandwagon!!

What a wonderful idea! I'm jealous I didn't think of it.

I'm thankful for my husband. He's so mellow yet absolutely determined- those 2 things rarely coexist in a person. I love him for so many reasons and I'm so very lucky to have him.

I love this! I am very thankful for the close relationship I have with my family too. Particularly my mom who is helping with the baby this week while daddy is away on business!

Awesome idea! Again, a little late on the comment but getting all caught up!

I agree, I am so lucky to have the relationship I do with my parents and not to take them for granted.
