This Weeks Favorites and Gratitudes!

I took this idea from a few of my blogger friends. Here are few things that occurred this week that kept me grateful to be alive and enjoying the joy in my daily journey.

* My mom, the unconditional love that she has for me. Her concerned tears of love for me for my faults, trials, and heart aches. I was humbeled and stood in awe of how blessed I am to have the mother that I have.

* Bishop Christiansen

* The Spirit speaking to my heart

* Lunch at Harmons with Megan my best friend

* My five mile route that I run with Jessie whenever I can. The beautiful fall Saturday afternoon when we ran together and enjoyed each others company.

* The relaxing words and support of my angel Nadine.

* Katie Park, for the support and friend that I have in her. I am blessed to have you in my life at this time.

* Debbie Thomas, for being the person in my life that I can talk to and you will not judge me. I love you more more each week we are friends.

* Prayer to my father in heaven. I can always turn and find peace in prayer.

* For my favorite TV shows, The Hills, Brothers and Sisters, Survivor, Ellen, and Oprah for providing me with mindless entertainment after a long day of work.

* My patients and staff family at Integrated Wellness. I am abundantly blessed to work in such an amazing environment where everyone is grateful and where I can contribute to others that are not feeling well.

* Lifetime Fitness GF family, I want to pinch myself daily because I am so lucky to be apart of such a great team. I am truly blessed beyond words. I love you!

* Kaycee Dunfield, for providing me with lightness in life and laughter. How I love your company and friendship. Allowing me this week to PTLMS your back and making me laugh so hard when you could not hold still. I had great pleasure in this process. HA!

* Heidi Ormsby, for making me laugh this week by any comment you make.

* Jenny Frogley, for your beautiful voice. Downloading, "We are free" and "Stand in holy places". on Itunes.

* Sarah Mclachlan released a new greatest hits cd "Closer" and I went out and purchased it! Amazing!

* Attending the temple. I felt so peaceful, and I was grateful for the sweet spirit I felt there. Reading Mormon:9 and having hope for miracles.

* Christina McEvoy, for her amazing friendship. Winning a necklace at her Twisted Silver jewelry party. I never win anything! It was a first!

* Ethan and Savannah, for emailing me and calling me almost every day this week. I miss them so much, they moved to Keokuk Iowa. Savannah emailing me and letting me know "This is a NIGHTMARE without you!" Ethan asking me for my "I dress" because he wanted to write me a letter. I miss all of you! Amanda my beautiful sister, Adam, Ethan and Savannah.

* All of my classes that I had an oppertunity to teach this week.

* Julie Labrum, for subbing a Total Conditioning class for me on Saturday. I was so tired, and did not think I could make it. I LOVE YOU!

* The way one of our patients Logan scared the hiccups right out of my mom. Funniest moment this week!

* Jennifer Ebeling, a patient that I just love! She made me smile this week.

* Kat Morrills nice texts

* Watching two of my favorite people do so well in the figure competition! AMAZING!

* Laughing so hard at Ellen when she was teaching Dakota Fanning how to drive. If anyone saw this, wasn't it funny? I almost choked I was laughing so hard. If you did not see it, watch it now! Oh my gosh! You won't regret it.

* The beautiful fall weather

* Debbie and her story about eating maggots accidentally.

* My car was fixed. Thank you Preston.

* Realizing that faith is real, and I am blessed according to my faith.

* My new nose, the swelling went down more this week. Hurray!

* Realizing that I have a best friend within myself, I spent a lot of time alone ths week. It was ok. I needed the time.

* Garrett, Brittany, little Vince,and the girls. Letting me hang out with them on Friday night. Ordering pizza and giving me company.

* Shelly's great TC class! Loved it. Thanks for a great workout.

* Having 48 people in my Fusion class on Sunday and feeling as though I was being hugged with their postive energy.

* Having 57 people show up to Cycle on Monday and feeling again how amazing these people are in my life. I am grateful for the cold weather because they all come back indoors to ride. :)

* I am grateful for Allison, Cameron, Mason and Dillon for always being their for me if I need family. Mason is really starting to like his aunt and you don't know how good this makes me feel. Mason sitting on the stair with me while I talked on the phone. He watches every move I make...literally. I feel as though he is so intrigued by me.

* Realizing that this is my time and my day! AND I am not giving up!

So there are my favorites for the week!

OK, more irony. You had family move to Keokuk? KEOKUK, IOWA? Ummm, yeah, just up the road from my childhood house, as a matter of fact, we competed against Keokuk in high school sports. Tell your family to prepare themselves for the coldest winter they can imagine! No lie, it gets 70 below zero with the windchill. It'll make them tough, that's for sure!
