Day 5 or 20 Minutes Before Day 6 of 30 Day Grateful Trial

What a day.

I started my day way too early with a soccer game.
Started my period at half time.
Froze for hours.
Then headed home for play dates and birthday parties.
I know you are already jealous:)

By 11:30am I was in bed cold, miserable, in pain and convinced there was no way I could get on a bicycle to ride for 20 miles.
By 12:30 I realized if I am freezing under 5 blankets in bed with 2 Midol, and I was still feeling awful that a bike ride in 45 degree weather with a lot of wind wouldn't make a difference..I got up.
I mounted my bike with my husband and peddled.
I Won't lie.
I was cold.
I was miserable.
But I did it.
So here I am at 11:46pm grateful that I did.
I am still cold.
Shivering actually.
Still on my period.
Tired and sore.
But you know what?
I DID IT!
and God was there sustaining me...
every breath
every mile
every second.
WAHOOOOOOOO!
In 9 minutes I will be 37!

Happy Birthday!! Not exactly how I would have wanted to kick it off myself but kudos for being a darn good wife. Hope you are warm today. :)

Hey. Ok, I just realized how I am supposed to do this list thing. I thought it was a running list so in the end there would be '30' things I was grateful for. That made it really hard to pick one each day. Now I get it. HA!

Happy Birthday today! I hope you stay warm & get a little nappy in. Hugs from Texas!!!!

Hope you feel better soon.
