Thankful Challenge: Day 1

On 29-August, my friend, Dustin, nominated me for the Thankful Challenge. The rules of the Challenge are pretty simple: 
  1. Post an entry every day for five days
  2. For each entry, list three things you are thankful for
  3. In your last entry, nominate three others to complete the Challenge
I intended to start after the Labor Day holiday weekend, but I've put it off because I learned my good friend passed away on 01-September and that really threw me for a tumble last week. It's amazing to me how much that event shook my life.

So, for Day 1, here are my thoughts. I'm thankful for:
  1. Gaining some closure at my David's funeral on Saturday. David and his wife always made me feel like a part of their family. On Saturday I got to meet even more of David's family and learn more about him. What a blessing it was to be included, share stories, and feel the love we all shared because of David's impact on our lives.
  2. Cool fall weather. Although the summer temperatures have not been that bad, I'm thankful for the drop in temperature.
  3. Support from my family and friends. One thing I learned this weekend is we never know all of the ways our life impacts those around us. So I want to make sure and let you all know that you are impacting my life and I am so very thankful for your friendship, your concern, and your love.
