Why do we need Valentine’s Day to tell our loved ones how we feel? Why do we need Mother’s and Father’s Day to say “thanks for being a great parent!”? Why do we need St. Paddy’s Day to drink Guinness and eat Corned Beef? Why do we need Thanksgiving, and the month of November to realize we have so much to be thankful for?
Not only am I taking part in NaBloPoMo (man, it’s a PITA to write that out!), but I’m posting something I am thankful for every day on my small business page on Facebook. When I think of things I am thankful for, I am so overwhelmed with things that come to mind that I am going to start a new segment:
Daily (there is that word again!), starting January 1, 2012, I am going to post something I am thankful for. I would love for you to comment with something you are thankful for! Even better if you have a blog and try to do the same thing! If you participate in 365 Thanks, feel free to link back to your posts on my comment section! Let’s start a movement of Thanks!
I’m curious to see if it’s hard for me on the days I’m feeling oh-woe-is-me. Honestly, I’m hoping that even on those dark days, I’ll be able to stop for a minute and see that the day is fleeting and mercies are new every morning.
Until the new year hits, I’m going post about my thankfulness for the month of November. I have to play a little catch up here on the blog!
Day 1: I’m thankful for three curious and bright daughters!
Day 2: I am thankful for gummy baby grins.
Day 3: I am thankful for friends that make a really cool opportunity a possibility!
Day 4: I am thankful for God’s timing. He is constantly taking care of His children, even if they don’t recognize it.
What are you thankful for today?
