  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 10

    Posted on March 31st, 2010 Scott No comments

    Note: I’m only a few hours late on this one!  I was just tired last night!

    Today I am grateful for:

    • Beautiful weather – Sun, breeze, clear skies!  Nice!
    • Kids that enjoyed our time together and were helpful to each other tonight
    • Max’s childhood enthusiasm and excitement about things as simple as jumping off a playground thing
    • DVR
  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 8-9 roll up

    I must confess – I forgot to post on Sunday, remembered on Monday, then forgot…

    On Sunday and Monday I was grateful for:

    • Getting to see Derek and his friends perform at Church
    • Better than expected weather on Sunday
    • Fun @ Derek’s soccer game
    • Good burger for dinner
    • Living to be 42 years old
    • My wonderful gifts (I’ve burned 1250 calories today, as I type this!)
    • The Cake Hag
    • Not gaining a ton of weight as I indulged this weekend
    • Finding the “strength” to work out yesterday when I was feeling sorry for myself
    • About 150 people, around the world, that took time to say Happy Birthday on the phone, FB and in person
    • Not being bitten by the Marietta Roof Snake!

    Today I am grateful for:

    • A good time running the Spring Chicken
    • Derek running VERY well – winning his age group in the 1 mile event
    • Maxwell running a mile!  (He walked 3 times, but pretty much ran the whole way in jeans and sweater!)
    • A good day of yard work – shack is looking a little better!
    • Good company for dinner tonight!  Thanks to the Tickners!
  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 6

    Today I am grateful for:

    • Getting lots of stuff done
    • Being able to surprise Max w/his friend Kara for dinner
    • Improving weather
    • Reduced calf pain
    • The day coming to an end.  It was a good day, but it was long!
    • The weekend
  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 5

    Today I am grateful for:

    • Max – though I had to get off work early – being ok.  (He “didn’t feel good”).
    • My calves not hurting while running on the treadmill today – opening up the opportunity to run the Spring Chicken
    • The internet and direct access to the World Track Championships

    I really … at this point, don’t feel very grateful.  In all honesty, I’m letting stupid crap get in the way of important stuff.

  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 4

    Posted on March 24th, 2010 Scott No comments

    Today I am grateful for:

    • Perhaps the nicest day of 2010
    • Riding my bike two days in a row for the first time in 2010
    • Being able to spend lots of time at the park with Derek and Max last night.  Derek practiced w/his team – which is really starting to “come together”, I think!   Max played and played and played – he was so happy, all the way down to his little munchkin sized inner core.
    • Dinner at Church tonight – no work, just enjoy! 🙂
    • The internet and the speed at which we can get real, factual information about events being held all over the world.
  • Attitude of Gratitude – Day 3

    Posted on March 23rd, 2010 Scott No comments

    Today I am grateful for:

    1. A safe bike ride, even in the face some stupid route decisions.
    2. Improving weather
    3. Being able to go to Men’s Bible Study last night
    4. The people that represented me, and other cyclists that couldn’t make it, on the Georgia Rides to the Capital event yesterday.
    5. Waking up to a new day, doing the right thing, even though I desperately wanted to sleep.
  • An Attitude of Gratitude – Day 2

    Posted on March 22nd, 2010 Scott No comments

    Today I am grateful for:

    1. Social Media having an on/off switch.  It’s not a requirement.  It can enhance your life but if it becomes a hindrance, it can easily be removed.
    2. Change in the weather.  It’s days like today that make last Saturday (and hopefully tomorrow) seem THAT much better!
    3. Friends and neighbors that do things like get me a Peachtree number so I am ready to go, come July 4th.
    4. Quality automobiles that don’t leave me and/or my family stranded.
    5. Freedom.  As often as I overlook the freedoms I do have in live, I still remain eternally grateful for the freedoms I have in life.
  • An Attitude of Gratitude – Day 1

    Today I am grateful for:

    1. A wonderful day yesterday, including time with my family, good competition for the kids, clean air, sunshine and a wonderful bike ride.
    2. A warm place to sit as the cold front moves in
    3. The opportunity to help others at church.
    4. Domestic animals – the love they show and the fun they bring to my family is unexplainable.
