Giving Thanks

Today is a day of Thanksgiving. Here is a list of those things for which I am thankful:
  • Mike. He is my best friend, fellow adventurer, coach, supporter, mechanic and enabler. My world would not be the same without him.
  • I am thankful to my brother for leaving us with his beautiful daughter, my niece. She is a treasure beyond imagination.
  • I am thankful to still have my parents, who are both in good health, and are best friends. They have been guideposts throughout my life, and this year we have all leaned on one another for strength and comfort.
  • I am thankful to still have my furry friend Oreo. Her health is rapidly declining, but I am truly thankful we made it through last weekend's crisis.
  • For my extended family - grandma, inlaws, aunts, uncles and cousins with whom I have reunited this year.
  • I am also thankful for all of my friends, far and wide. I am blessed to have so many good people in my life who share the good and the bad with me.
  • And, lastly, I am thankful for my bikes. They give me a chance to escape, fly free, and to truly test myself.

Yay for all of those things.

Sorry about felinelove, Oreo. (hugs)

Oh.. how 'bout how FAST you healed up to be able to still do some CX this season??? Awesome!

Todd Rowell said...

Yay! FWIW, your club is thankful for YOU!

Not kidding!

I agree with Todd! Thank you, Cathy!

So beautfully put Cathy. You brought tears to our eyes.

Can't wait to see the pictures and writeup about the race that we were at with you.

Love you so much.

Please thank Mike and the other guy who helped me with my shoe problem as well - that event was a great end of season ride.

Hope to see you this spring at some races - happy holidays!
