I am of course most grateful for my husband and my two gorgeous little girls. They make me feel complete and whole.
I am also very grateful for my parents who raised me to know right from wrong. I have 8 living siblings and they are all wonderful people who love me. My twin sister is of course my other half.... for real. I know most people use this term for their spouse... not me. Frances is my other half and I love and miss her daily.
I am grateful for my girlfriends who picked me to be their friend, and don't give up on me when times get crazy. I miss my Utah girls so much, it hurts everyday. They are such amazing women.I am grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have not always been the most faithful member, but I know the church is true and it helps me to be a better wife/mother/women and friend.
I am grateful for diet coke, flip flops and chocolate.
I am EXTREMELY grateful for a healthy body that allows me to run the miles I endure weekly. I am grateful it has carried me through thousands of miles in training and races. I am so grateful to have the strength to run 26.2 miles and to work out as much as I do.
I am grateful for the ability to breath on my own, walk, RUN, bend, play with my children, hear, see and feel.
I am grateful to have been born in this Country. I am very proud to be an American.
