Thankful Thursday - Going For A Walk

Today I'm very thankful that I took the first step, literally. Abby Dog and I used to go for a long walk everyday, and we loved it. Somehow that habit vanished, and that was a real shame. For months now, I've been wanting to get back into it, but... 
You know how it is, right? If you don't make it a priority, something else will always happens instead. First there was the shoe excuse. Zappo's fixed that. Heck, I even had a credit, so the nice walking shoes were $3 - score! Then I couldn't find Abby's leash. Eventually, I did find it, as you can see in the photo. What else? Too hot, too cold, too busy. Everyday there was something.
Thankfully today the excuses got out of the way. Hooray! We went for a walk, a nice long walk. Abby was actually smiling, and her tail was wagging so fast it's nearly an invisible blur in the photo. We had a few issues with pace. Little dog was ready to go, and go fast! I was thinkin' "man slow down, I'm outta shape!". Despite the discrepancy, a good time was had by all.
The test is to see if I will be back out there again tomorrow. I sure hope so. All encouragement will be greatly appreciated. Too bad Abby isn't able to remind me to make it a priority, we'd have been walking ages ago.
What are you feeling thankful for today? Is there anything that you have been avoiding that would feel great to get started on?
