    What are YOU thankful for??

    Have you ever had one of those days where the stars lined up and everything you do or touch turned out GREAT?? Well today is that day for me. I had a lesson on Big Red with a new Instructor who is near my home. Charges a great inexpensive price, and gave us both a really awesome lesson. It got me thinking.....

    I am So Thankful I am that I'm healthy enough to Ride. I'm thankful that I have the time and money to spend taking horseback riding lessons AND lessons on my own horse. I'm thankful that I have my own truck and trailer to pull my horse anyplace we want to go. I'm thankful that my HORSE is healthy enough to ride. I'm SO thankful that I have these Magnificent animals to share my life. I am really so very blessed and it just hit me today while riding my horse and the sun was shining, the temp perfect, my guy was doing really well, His new saddle fits him awesome.... what a super luck lady I really am :)

    I just like quoteing you, because you said it so well, I started feeling thankful, even though I dont' own a truck, trailer or even my own horse.
    But I do have days like that, and being aware enough to recognize how special and precious they are is really important.
    Thanks for the reminder! I , too had a great day, thank you.

    I am very thankful for my parents. They've been there every step of the way for me, and have given me everything that I could ever dream of. (Not is a spoiled way) My parents started with nothing at a very young age and they are still together after 25 years. They have given me a life that many kids will never know. They are paying for a college education for me that will allow me to succeed in life. They've given me horses and dogs that will forever have a great impact on my life.

    I've never wanted for anything regarding a roof over my head, food in my belly and clothes on my body. Even when I was young, my parents made sure their kids were well taken care of, even if they had to do without. As I grow older, I begin to understand the sacrifices that were made for my brother and I.

    My dad went to college for 1 semester and college wasn't for him. He started painting airplanes where he met my mom when he was 21. My mom was 18. They had already planned on getting married, but my mom got pregnant and she had 2 kids by the time she was 21. She started college when she was 23 and went for Nursing. She went to school from 8am to 3pm, then worked from 330pm to 11pm and then started the day all over again, week after week, month after month. I'm 23 now and can't imagine a life with a husband, 2 kids, a job and going to nursing school. WoW. But she did it, and graduated with honors. My dad 12 years ago, started his own business painting airplanes and has worked from the ground up, and they are now a top 10 small airplane painting business in the world.

    If I could be half the person that my parents have been in their lifetime, I could die a happy person. I can't thank them enough.

    I am thankful for our amazing mares, who try their hardest at everything we ask them to do.

    My amazing mother, who has always been my best friend and # 1 supporter and let me be who I am meant to be.

    I'm thankful every day when my car starts up.

    I'm thankful for my mad job finding skills, because it's let me try things out and eventually I'll figure out what I wanna do.

    & my ex boyfriends parents, weirdly enough. For always supporting me, feeding me when I couldn't afford to and keeping me tough! But mainly for always being the family I have never had and providing a "home", which you never realize means so much until you don't have one.

    I get all misty eyed just thinking a bout it :)
    I'm glad you had a great day too :) Days like today serve remind me that everything Will be OK and it reminds me to be appreciative of all the days of my life cause nothing is guaranteed. Any day you can roll out of bed without pain should be considered a GOOD day. All the rest is just icing on the cake.
