Thankful Thursday

"If we forget about our pain as easy as we forget our blessings the world would be a much better place" 

While watching AC360 a few weeks back I heard this from the father of a young man, Lanz Hare, who was killed after a tornado devastated Joplin Missouri. I can be a person who doesn't always see the blessing in life or being thankful for all the great things in my life. I'm hoping to stick with a Thankful Thursday feature. 

ONE.  Central air-conditioning! Our original AC unit died the first year in our new home. We had to pay a small fortune for a new/energy efficient model. I don't usually use it and hold out with fans and cold water for as long as I can with out dying. Can't complain today when the heat index was almost 105 in NJ. 

TWO.  My gym is a millisecond from my development. It gives me no excuse to avoid a gym session. Plus I feel guilty whenever I just drive by. Only problem is I wish I liked working out... I don't. I HATE IT!!!

THREE. This amazing little Cairn Terrier. His name is Bogart Beardsley. He is my fur baby. Since bringing Bogart into our lives we laugh so much more then I could have ever imagined. Owning a dog can definitely have a positive impact on anyone's life. 

FOUR. My family, Brian and friends. Is that a given that I would be thankful for it? Well just in case you didn't think so. I can't express how darn lucky I am to have them in my life. 

I hope you all have some amazing things they are thankful for. 
Happy Thursday loves!
Oh and stay cool in this heat!
