Lindsey Vonn says she's 'thankful' for new beau Kenan Smith

Lindsey Vonn is "thankful" for the new man in her life.

In honor of Thanksgiving, Vonn shared a touching post on Instagram on Wednesday showing gratitude to friends, family and her "amazing" new boyfriend, Kenan Smith.

"Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so before my family gets here I want to take the time and give thanks," she captioned a photo montage that includes a snapshot with Smith. "Even though I'm injured, again, I have so much to be thankful for; incredible friends, an amazing boyfriend, my family and a lot of loyal supporters."

The 32-year-old Olympic gold medalist ended the note by reflecting on the recent death of a family member.

"With my Uncle's passing it reminds me even more to appreciate what we have in life because you never know what the future holds," she wrote. "I hope everyone has a wonderful turkey day!"

As for her new beau, Smith is an assistant wide receivers coach with the Los Angeles Rams.

It's a good chance Smith has been by her side to help nurse Vonn back to health after she suffered a "severely" broken arm in a skiing accident on Colorado's Copper Mountain.

"Unfortunately, yesterday I crashed while training in Copper and severely fractured the humerus bone in my right arm," she revealed to fans earlier this month. "I had successful surgery last night in Vail and everyone took great care of me."

Vonn seems to have found happiness, months after saying she will always love her ex, Tiger Woods.
