A hit and miss kind of thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday with A Parenting Life For days I have pondered over what words I would use in this post. With so many wonderful things to be thankful for I couldn't decide what way was best to share the joys befallen upon me of late.  Were there some that could be put aside for another day perhaps? Or had I duplicated myself in anyway?

Oh the decisions I tell you.

Naturally though as I sit down to write my mind is free from all such thoughts. Completely and utterly blank in fact.

Add to my woes the fact that it is beyond stinking hot and there is a child refusing to go to sleep and perhaps you can understand my brain's reluctance to think of being thankful. Oh did I mention that I have also somehow once again managed to forget all about my writer's reveal post?

Which is just ridiculous because Jodi, the awesome writer responsible for my prompt, gave me my prompt ages and ages ago. With plenty of time to have got my act together. Again though it was a matter of lots of thought and little action. It appears to be a recurring theme in my life I think.

But wallow I will not. Because thankful is what I am. And blessed.

I am thankful that when dear Lovely pushed my buttons just a little too much I knew to walk away. In fact I knew to walk far, far away. 

I am thankful that as part of walking far, far away I decided to take the rubbish out. I am sure it saved an argument later on when asking someone else to do it for me. 

I am even more thankful that as I left the house to take the rubbish out I was able to grab ten dollars and head down to the shops to get some pasta for dinner (that I forgot to get when I was at the shops earlier). There was something incredibly exciting about leaving the house and not telling anyone where I was going or what I was doing.

I am particularly thankful that the shops are only some five hundred metres down the road. Though I would have been more thankful about a longer distance if I had of taken the time to put my sneakers on because there was one point where walking was just too slow yet as I am only too aware that running in thongs is done at one's own peril I was hesitant to stride it out too much.

Having said that though, I am thankful that I was able to jog for a tiny bit and actually enjoy it and want more. I remember a time where this wasn't the case. I remember when even walking was too much of an effort and I do not ever want to go back to that. 

I would like to be thankful for a few good runs, I hope it will be in next week's post.

Thanks as always to those who joined in last week, as well as to anyone who links in this week. It really makes my heart swell in so many ways. As does the way you spread the comment love.

I would super duperly love it if you put my one of my cool little buttons (code found in the side bar) in your post or blog, but it is no biggy if you don't. A link back works just as well. The link is open all week and you are welcome to add any post about thanks or something that brings you happiness. To me happiness and thanks tend to go hand in hand.
