On August 1st, I posted about 31 things that I wanted to do before my 31st birthday on August 31st.  Yes, that's today and it's my birthday.  Best day ever.  Happy Birfday to me!!!  One of the things that I wanted to do this month was write down one thing each day that I felt thankful for.  I am naturally discontent and although I don't always want "more" (because I love living simply), I do usually want "better".  However, I want to remind myself that even if I don't get more things or better things, I already have everything that I need.  Here are the things that I wrote down:

I am thankful for...

1.  Grandma's Bible
2.  morning walks on the beach

3.  money to do fun things like go see a movie with a friend
4.  my volvo
5.  coming home to Ironman each day
6.  a home that's our own

7.  bike rides on the rail trail
8.  this blog :)
9.  a comfortable bed
10.  my essential oils business
11.  our family beach house
12.  friends that I can count on
