energy {day 360}

After a few pretty bad days (fibro and otherwise) I am thankful for a day full of people and things I love that ended with me still feeling good and full of energy. Although fibro sucks, I am so thankful that I actually have some days that I feel good now. A year ago I couldn’t have said that.

and reminders of who Jesus is and who I am on a day that I just felt overwhelmed and sad. I am blessed to be surrounded by people who love me, pray for and with me, and who feed my spirit (and my Ollie’s cravings).

I had an amazing time at camp but I am SO thankful to be home and snuggling with my sweet hubs and pup. I am also grateful for my welcome home gift which I am excited to read and am told is meant to encourage me to “stay on the couch (reading) and never leave.” love my hubby.

long walk date night {day 337}

20130712-072008.jpg

Tonight sweet hubs and I decided to go for a walk. Our leisurely stroll turned into a 5 mile walk with dinner somewhere in the middle and an absolutely stunning view of the setting sun from the courthouse lawn. I am grateful for a short walk that turned into hours of holding hands, laughing and talking, exploring our little town and just being together with no distractions.

oops {day 327} (really late)

apparently all it takes to break a 300-something day habit (GOOD HABIT) is a five day vacation. yikes. sorry I’ve been failing so miserably. I will try to get back on board.

so…

I am beyond grateful for my sweet husband, who works really hard to make me feel loved and cherished and valued. even on my most irritable days, I know that I am blessed beyond belief to be loved so well.
