My heart is so full. There are moments in my life where I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Today is one of them. Nothing major or poetic happened today, but a simple realization of how blessed I am.
My heart is so full because...I got to love and hug on my little nephew, Maximus. Who knew it was possible to love a human so much that is not even yours. Being an aunt may be one of the greatest gifts God has given me.
My heart is so full because...I got to hang with my sweet sister-in-law, Cara. She is a gift from God, and I am truly thankful to have her join our family. Her love for my brother and her kids is beautiful.
My heart is so full because...I have the freedom and ability to run on this beautiful day. A few years back I was injured with a bad dose of plantar fasciitis and achillies tendonitis, and all I wanted was to be able to do sprints again. Today at the track was a perfect dose of hard work and serenity. I am thankful I have the freedom to run in the middle of the day and that I can run.
My heart is so full because...I have the best Mom and Dad! My parents moved a month ago, and I miss them so much. It's beautiful as I have grown older the relationship with my parents has shifted. My parents have always been loving and supportive but now there is this friendship and fun that I am so blessed and lucky to have. I no longer view them as this authoritative disciplinarian; they are now a dear friend and someone I confide in and can't wait to visit.
My heart is so full because...I have the best SHOWsibs! My brother, Tyler, is one of the hardest working men I know. His love and sacrifice for his family are next to none. His passion for life and commitment to excellence runs deep. I miss him everyday. My youngest sister, Kara, is one of the funniest people I know. Her smile, singing, and dancing are qualities I miss experiencing on a daily basis. Distance truly does make the heart grown fonder. And my sister, Paige. I am so thankful I have 1 family member left in the ATX. She is my best friend, and I am beyond thankful we get to experience this crazy thing called Single Life In Your 30s together.
My heart is so full because...I get to coach and change people's lives on a daily basis. I love my clients, and a lot of them have become dear friends over the past 7 years. Work does not seem like work when you coach with some of the best people in the business.
What makes your heart full?
