Just a Few Blessings in this Life

   I Saw this inspiring quote from a new blog I just began following and it inspired me to take a look at my life and the little thinks that I am grateful for.

     Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to changeā€¦  let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe.
– James 1:17 (ESV), Hebrews 10:28b

     I feel so blessed in my life every day.
    If I had to narrow it down to just a few things that make my life worth living;

    One would be my incredible friends ships. My friends are my life and every time they make me laugh and the adventures we have are memories to last a life time. I love these guys weither we are back packing up a mountain, having a fun day at the race track or enjoying a day floating in inner tubes at the creek.


    Two for sure would be I’m so grateful for the chances I have had to travel to Europe and to Mexico.  I love travel with a passion and I am so thankful to god every day that every time we went to Mexico between 1997 and 2007 we made it home safely (Even if some of us pooped ourselves)
     I feel so blessed for the trips I made all around Europe a few years ago. Some fun times were had in Paris,


Munich and

Venice.


    The third thing I am so grateful for is every day I get out of bed and my back does not hurt. I have lived with back pain for the last four years some days so bad I could not stand up straight or walk. Every day that I put on my running shoes and stride up a mountain I thank god that I am still out there running the trails that I love.
  


   It really is hard to narrow it down to just a few things to be grateful for.
