Thanksgiving Day 2009
So many things have changed in just one short year.
I got up early this morning and met up with a couple girls from my support group for the annual Turkey Trot in Troy NY. This is the 62 annual event and my FIRST. I had never even considered walking 1 1/2 miles on purpose with thousands of other people. But this year... oh so different. I was excited, so excited in fact that even though I set my alarm for 6am I was up many times before that just to check to make sure it wasn't 6am yet. Pathetic I know, but I was so afraid I'd sleep through it on a fluke.
Michelle, Me and Susan at the starting line
Then there was the man in the turkey hat. Well I had to have my photo taken with him. Thanks Susan for taking the pic, I am sure I embarrassed you asking a total stranger to have his picture taken with me. A year ago I wouldn't have dared ask a stranger to pose for a pic alone yet with me in it too. LOL
And here we are at the finish line, haha look how much we have shrunk, that walk did us good. LOL. I can so see this becoming a tradition for me. I enjoyed it so much. And especially the fact that I CAN do it now, just makes me want to do it more. of course next year I will either have pants that fit or suspenders, what fun I had pulling my pants up every couple blocks. LOL
Enjoy this day everyone, with your families and friends. Reflect on all the good things God has done in your life. There is always something to be thankful for, ALWAYS.
