Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s Word is JOY.
- I am healthy enough to do the things I want.
- I have a lot of friends whom I care about and who support me.
- I am married to a guy whom I love.
- My kitties are awesome.
- I have a job so I can pay my bills (& support my running habit LOL)
However, none of what brings JOY are possessions or things that you can buy (except for a PR or new running shoes. Only kidding!)
and most importantly…
I try to and I hope that I do give joy to others:
Speaking of giving JOY to others, I love giving gifts. I don’t have a big family and we’ve stopped exchanging gifts among friends so I try to participate in a few gift exchanges.
I did a Chinese grab bag at work and I ‘m doing one with all my tennis friends.
I also participated in two blogger Secret Santas.
It was so cool to meet someone new (that is through a new blog) and receive great gifts.
From Brittney @ Corral B, I got:
I bought gifts for Nikki @ Will Run for Pizza but I forgot to take a pic (but they were similar to Kate’s but without the stocking and ShotBloks instead of Stinger waffles
For the SkirtSports Ambassador Captain Stocking Exchange, I got paired with Kate @ My Alpine Adventures:
And I received these gifts from Helen @H-Monkey Runs:
Now I have 4 new blogger friends 🙂
- Finally, congrats to my MealEnders Giveaway winner!
Happy Running! What brings you JOY? Do you do gift exchanges?
