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!


  1. I read your posts daily, but somehow seeing a list of them really gives me a better sense of who you are.

    Keep writing! I'm struggling also but you need to do it!

    Always glad to visit here.

  2. Your list was definitely not boring! There's something wonderful about focusing on our blessings, and I love that you gathered all of your daily posts and gave them a bloggy home.
