Thankful Thursday (Girl Meets Life September Blogging Challenge)

I came across Girl Meets Life’s September Blogging Challenge, and wanted to hop on board.

Here’s my Thankful Thursday. (You can view the entire blogging challenge here.)

I could go on and on about how much my pug has touched my life. She’s taught me so many lessons, especially about knowing when to rest. She calms me and continually surprises me with her strength. She suffers with a back disease that is a form of slow paralysis, and yet she plays like she’s still a puppy.

I’m so thankful to have this little creature in my life.

I noticed that Dennisse Lisseth, who runs the page Exceptional Living on Facebook, as well as her website Dennisse Lisseth, wrote in her newsletter the other day that she’s always wanted to do this but never made time for it. I couldn’t help but want to share as well, but thought a blog post which I could update each day would be better. I think you should join in too!

(Side note: I started following the Exceptional Living page about three months ago, and am inspired everyday by the motivational quotes and pictures she’d post.)

Have a great Thursday!
