This week ended up being hectic but not in the way I had thought. Instead of traveling for work I was stuck in bed with a stomach flu. I'm still nursing some ginger ale, but overall I'm feeling much better.
Last night I finally got out to the barn. I was prepared to cut my lesson short if I was feeling weak, but the fresh air and pony lovin' had healing properties and I immediately felt much better.
I had a Carly moment - check out Hemie's new next door neighbor!
Snowflake!!! How stinkin' adorbs is he?
Hemie and Snowflake had some neck arching, squealy cuteness but I was too slow on the camera draw. Oh well.
But that's okay - I've decided to do it anyway. This month I'm going to be more purposefully thankful every day. I got the final push from L of Viva Carlos who also is doing it even though starting late. It's never too late to be grateful, I think.
Now to make up for my fence-sitting, here's my catch-up on what I've been especially grateful for each day this month:
Day 1 - I'm thankful to have a house with a guest room so friends can stay with me when visiting from out of town.
Day 2 - I'm grateful for beautiful fall weather - perfect for a beach wedding.
Day 3 - I'm thankful for lazy laid-back mornings with a country breakfast.
Day 4 - I'm grateful for unexpected late birthday gifts.
Day 5 - I'm grateful for Netflix (very important when sick in bed).
Day 6 - I'm thankful for my compassionate husband who steps up when I'm feeling down.
Day 7 - I'm thankful for pony therapy! The best medicine.
Day 8 - Today I'm thankful for good health.
