thankful.

what is the difference between bragging and being proud?
im sure they mean different things to different people.

i ran a 4 mile race yesterday.
Thanksgiving morning.
my goal was to do it in under 50 minutes.
i thought i ran it in under 48.
then when the result were posted it was 45:12.
and i am very proud of myself.
and i think that's ok.
being proud.
and sharing my proud-ness.
i don't have a lick of athleticism in my body.
so running is really a big deal for me.
i really never thought i could run down the street.
or even around the block.
so 4 miles? in a race?
huge.
running makes me proud.
and i need that.
and i am thankful that i am able to run.
afterwards we all enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal at my aunts.
the best food. seeing lots of family. the birthday game. and dessert.

we came home and listened to Christmas music and watched a Christmas movie.

yesterday was a good day.
and i love those kinds of days.

i also love giveaways :)
(i'll email you as soon as i know you know it's you ;)
yay!

hugs to everyone!!
i am thankful for you all.
