30 Days of Thankful

Like many people I know, I decided to participate in the "30 Days of Thankful" on Facebook.  Each day in November, I looked forward to reading what everyone was thankful for in their lives.  And each day, I posted something that I was thankful for.  Some things were silly, like November 5th, when I had a particularly rough day and was simply thankful for chocolate, but other days were more significant and included my daughter, family, and friends.  Just for fun, I thought I'd compile a list of each of my posts here, so I could easily look back and be reminded of all the things in my life that I have to be thankful for.  Here goes...

Nov. 1-Today I am thankful for my sweet little girl, who can always make me smile, no matter how bad my day has been.

Nov. 2-Today I am thankful for a wonderful group of friends.

Nov. 3-Today I am thankful for my amazing mom and dad, and I'm so happy they booked their next cruise.   It's been a rough year and they deserve it!

If you've gotten all the way through my boring list, thanks for reading.  It's been a while since I've written anything on my blog, and it feels good to write again, even if this was a pretty easy post.  Really going to try to get back into the habit of writing on a regular basis!
