I set off for a 3 mile run. I haven't been working out as much because I've been working a lot and the mornings have been cold BUT while running decided that was a dumb excuse. I'm cold for maybe 5 minutes.
I'm thankful for many things. The usual ... a warm house, healthy kids, good jobs, family and friends. This week, I was told a pivotal person in my career path was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I have laid awake at 2 am in tears that this cancer would strike another person in my life (just like my mom). Often when it is detected, it's too late, and the person is given weeks to live.
I'm thankful for John. When I really hated my job and thought that I wasn't good at anything, he championed me and lifted me up. He believed I was talented, and we talked often about all things internet and I would like to think, I taught him as much as he taught me, to be confident in myself. When I lost my job, he was one of the first to hire me to do some freelance work. It was tough to take a full time job because I felt I really let him down but in the end, I trained someone else who ended up taking him presence to the next level.
I'm thankful for knowing my sister-in-law Natasha, who passed away from a long battle with breast cancer. It's sad she left us so soon, but we always remind ourself, we have another angel in heaven.
I'm thankful for my husband. Even though, he can be a pain in the ass, and I feel like I have three kids at times, he's a pretty awesome husband and father.
And I'm thankful for those who read my blog and who've helped me along the way with this hobby.
