Theme Song Thursday With a Side of Thankful

3 Oct

The one thing that you have that no one else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.
~Neil Gaiman

My morning started out with a super-charged Zumba class. Johnny was subbing for the class today. We never had a guy instructor, so I was a little dubious. OH MY!!! Johnny Got Moves!!! It was such a fun hour of dancing, hopping, grooving, and sweating. So fun!

I had to look up the song. We’ve done this one before, but I never knew the name. Plus, we never moved like that before. Shawty Got Moves:Get Cool.

After Zumba, I came home, did not pass go, did not collect $200, and went for a long, long walk. The dancing and the walking gives me such motivation and energy. After a late breakfast, I paid some bills, made some calls, and checked my emails. It’s funny, I was looking at my Linked In page and saw my friend Becky Hill’s page saying that she celebrated three years at the bank. Becky is also an intuitive and motivational speaker back home in Barrington, Illinois. We’ve been friends for over twenty years. I clicked on “LIKE” and thought, “I wonder how Becky’s doing.”

I decided to go upstairs and tackle some more unpacking of boxes and bins in the “crap room.” I just turned on the radio and the phone rang. It was Becky! Whoa! We’ve only talked a couple of times in the past few years. She said, There are NO coincidences.” She was thinking about me too and felt compelled to call.

So, today I am thankful the gift of dance, music, and friendship. AND last but not least, I am thankful a well needed refreshing rain this afternoon.


I am thankful for my voice, my mind, my story, my vision. So I write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only I can.
