A Month of Thankfulness

Over the years, I've participated in various blog challenges during the month of November. At first it was intimidating. Do I really have that much to say? I mean, thirty things for which to be thankful? C'mon, life isn't that good.

Well, if you've been with me for a while, you know I surprised myself and came up with over 100, way back when. I look back over that list from time to time. Most of it remains the same.....well, except that I'm not 40 anymore. I could probably add 100 more things by now. How? ....Because there is thankfulness in small things. It's easy to pass up the blessing of getting out of bed if you do it every day; or waking up with your spouse, until one day it doesn't happen anymore. These are a few of the very things that I've become keenly aware of as I watch dear friends travel extremely difficult roads.

So, here's the challenge. Whether you write it for the world to see, or hold it close to your heart - what are you thankful for? I'll be sharing mine here. Stay tuned...

Ooooh, I need to do this! I did one a million years ago, too, but I need a refresher. When are you posting? Around Thanksgiving or sooner? Here's one: I'm thankful that Thanksgiving isn't sooner.. LOLOLOL!!
Ok.. no more cheese this morning. ;)

Hey friend! In the past, I made a big, long list but this year I'm going to blog daily; each post a different area of thankfulness. It'll keep my heart accountable and hopefully keep me blogging as it's more theraputic than FaceBook. :-)

Love you bunches!
