i am thankful

Have you experienced listening to a song that just totally changed your attitude that day?!  By 7am I just knew today was going to be a rotten kind of day.  Trying to cheer myself up I turned on some tunes while getting ready and I certainly received my attitude check.  I'm so thankful for that song.  Today I am just thankful.

I am so thankful for music and how it does change my mood and attitude in a split second!  Thank you mom and dad for make music such a big part of our lives!
I am thankful the sun is shining through the clouds today!  (Even though it's only in the low 40's... I wasn't sure if spring existed here BUT everything is greening up haha)
I am thankful for good hair days and make up!  Makes life easier as I am still struggling with my self image.
I am thankful for a healthy body that allows me to work out.  Can't wait to get my spin on tonight! :)
I'm thankful Eric is mine.  I'm so lucky he loves me.  Plus he's hot ;)

I am thankful for so much more.  Really, I could go on and on.  But I won't :)  I will say that I am thankful God has blesed my life so much.  He truly loves me and has surrounded me with His beautiful creations so that I can be happier.  
What are you thankful for today?!

Loved this post! Yes its amazing how a beautiful piece of music can have the power to totally switch your mood!
I agree that it is so important to think about the things we are thankful for in our lives when we are feeling down or just having a bad day. I try to do this all the time and I think this can totally put things into perspective.
Oh and you look soo cute in that pink top by the way.

haha! Great minds think alike!!! I loved this. Pink is definitly a great color for ya! You look so great in that photo. I probably rely on my make-up too much to feel good about myself...I think I'm going to experiment and not wear it for a week, just for the lesson. That'll be hard for me though!

Blessings to you as you are thankful today!!!

thankful days are good ones. i think Heavenly Father LOVES them!!! i should have them more often.

Bday ideas.... it is tradition to do birthday week in our family. so brady get one gift for 7 days and then on his bday he will wake up to a house covered in streamers and balloons and his favorite breakfast in bed to start the day off right. then we are going to the park and play bocci ball and having a picnic and then heading out to the driving range to hit some balls and friends over for cake - i am bummed that brady doesnt want a fancy cake this year. have fun with eric's bday!!

Such a sweet post. I'm always thankful when it's sunny or not freezing. Summer is on it's way, slowly but surely.

I'm thankful that I have a wonderful boyfriend who drove 4 hours to get us both to our hometowns. I definitely needed to come home for a while and see how everything stays the same. Keeps me grounded.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Your hair is sooo beautiful. What is your daily regimen? :)

P.S. I think all women struggle with self image but once we learn to appreciate our imperfections we radiate the beauty within us!
