Prayed for safe travels over the Thanksgiving break.


So today’s work out didn’t really have a theme. I just picked out something that I thought would be tough. 

My final thought is about Thankfulness. I know you will probably hear this a lot because of the upcoming holiday but it is so powerful. Everyday we have to choose to be thankful. It’s a daily act. 

My wife shared a post with me that was really powerful. As most of you know we had a baby in June and recently her sleeping pattern has changed. Because of this we found ourselves complaining a little. So the post my wife shared with me said “Your complaints about your baby tossing in bed is another mamas wish that her baby was laying next to her.””. This was just one of many examples they listed. That put things into perspective for us. 

I don’t know what you are going through but there is something that you can be thankful for. And usually the thing that we are complaining about is one thing out of the 20 things that are going right.

Enjoy the holiday and let’s be just a little more thankful.
