With A Thankful Heart

There is much to be thankful for this year, and Thanksgiving is a terrific way to recognize such things.  I believe that in the midst of our daily hustle and bustle, we overlook the little things in life.  I once tried to do a 21-day “attitude of gratitude” list, I shamefully got up to day seven or eight and quit.  We get caught up in running around trying to do everything at once that we forget to sit back and relax, and take it all in.  I typically try to always thank God for all He’s done in my life but it’s more than that.  It’s the barista who serves me coffee, the receptionist at the office, the grocer at the store and the ones closest to us that we graze over on a daily basis.

This year I am extremely thankful.  Two thousand twelve has been my toughest year yet, and I acknowledge and appreciate what I have been through but, I am definitely ready to ring in the New Year.    What better way to do so than take a look at what all we’re thankful for this year (which is a great segway into my soon-to-be series of 2012 in review).  A lot of people have been posting a “what they’re thankful for” each day in November so I give you my compressed version of that.

I am thankful for:

  • The love and support of my family and friends (this year hasn’t been the easiest on them either.)
  • Everyone who has lovingly welcomed me into their life
  • All those who made an impact in my life  (especially this year)
  • AA, fellowship, sobriety
  • Pinterest (we would still be sticking to our old recipes and have no cool DIY projects)
  • Opportunities in life
  • DVR
  • Birthday Presents
  • Widespread Panic back on tour 😀
  • Tickets to the TCU @ UT game on Thanksgiving (GO FROGS GO!)
  • My lil Honda Accord (it gets me to and fro)
  • MY SUPER ADORABLE NIECE (who is my world)
  • My loving English Springer Spaniel, Riley
  • All of you!

I hope everyone has a terrific Thanksgiving holiday! Enjoy your family and friends, and all the wonderful things in your life.  Eat your heart out (holidays are the best time to ease up on your diet). Enjoy the food you eat, and be thankful for having a meal.  This Thanksgiving I’ll be cheering on my Horned Frogs in Austin.  I’ll be sure to write about that later, and of course I’ll be posting pics on Instagram so follow me at cbruni.


What are you thankful for?
