Mr Adam Killer here, taking over the blog for the day. We are linking up for Thankful Thursday, with Kate so thats what I am writing about…
I have been pestering to write a guest blog for Family of Killers for a while. I thought it would be easy as I always torment Lyndal saying how easy it is…. wrrrrooonnng
Things I am thankful for (laughs) the first one is that we have a semi pro blog writer in Lyndal in the family to make our lives seem remotely interesting.
The second being all the stuff that joe average would speak of. I’m thankful for my family, my life, my friends to keep this a little left of the middle.
One thing I am thankful for is bicycles and motorcycles. I got my first bike at age 4 or 5 it was green and we called it the milo bike (same colour as a milo tin!) With family came support, with bicycles came BMX – you can’t do one without the other. I have travelled all of this great country Australia racing my bicycle. At the time I didn’t realise the sacrifice that our families made. One year, I believe my father telling us that we have spent over $22 000 to race bicycles including family travel and so forth. Now I look back at the blood, sweat and tears that we put into this I am truly thankful.
I am thankful for Lyndal and that she shares my passion for anything two wheel related. Happiness can’t really reflect gratefulness. Gratefulness is something you feel on the inside, I believe it also evolves around understanding and love.
To be grateful is hard to describe, there is a lot more to be thankful for – like the country that I live in. My beloved Australia. To leave my safe haven was hard, but after months and months of planning and coaxing ‘it’s going to be alright’, I am forever thankful to my wonderful lil Lyndal who totally convinced me to take on the other side of the world.
I am thankful for many things, and in my vague listening of this blog stuff, these posts should be kinda to the point and I have realised I could ramble on for hours about the things I am thankful for.
But the one that is most important is my lovely lil Lyndal. The person who is ready to take on the world all 5ft 1in of her. I am thankful to have her in my life and opening me up to the big world that stands at our feet.
Thanks for letting me do a fill in blog – I might just be back.
Thanks for reading…
