give thanks, day 11

11 things.

i am grateful for calluses.  this is really from yesterday, but during the the mud run there were a few obstacles that left some of my fellow runners with big nasty blisters on their hands.  i looked down at my hands to find no blisters anywhere, all thanks to the little calluses i've built up over the past few months at crossfit.  i am proud of my calluses.  they make me feel tough.

i am grateful for the hymn be still, my soul. "thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end... be still, my soul: thy god doth undertake to guide the future as he has the past."

i am grateful for the scriptures. "feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do." (2 nephi 32:3)

i am grateful for sweet potatoes.  and even better than sweet potatoes... sweet potatoes fries!!!

i am grateful for christmas music.  makes me happy, happy.

i am grateful for comfort food.  i accept the consequences that will follow, but for right now i just don't care.  it tastes so good.

i am grateful for laughter.  other people's laughter, yes; but i truly appreciate it when others make me laugh.  feels good to laugh out loud.

i am grateful to be a teacher.  i figure it's better to be grateful for the thing i love than to complain about the thing i don't love... which happens to be grading.  which happens to be what i will be doing for approximately the next 5 hours.

i am grateful for sundays.  time spent at church, with family and friends... it doesn't get much better than that.

i am grateful for countdowns.  turkey day break begins in 5 days, people.  5 DAYS.

i am grateful for veterans.  to all who have served, do serve and will serve - you have my eternal gratitude and love.  i am humbled and inspired by your sacrifice.  thank you.
