A Month of Thanksgiving

My niece posted on facebook this morning that she was going to be focusing on Thanksgiving the whole month.  You know I love to think about things I’m grateful for.  So, I’m going to try to do the same thing.  I hope to post daily — at least for this month — about everything I’m grateful for.  I know I won’t have computer access this Saturday, so I’ll do my best to catch up on Sunday if I can’t get it done Saturday.  So, without further ado — Day One…

  1. I’m grateful that I do not have a horrible headache from caffeine and sugar withdrawal
  2. I’m grateful that I had only one Coke yesterday and (fingers crossed) only one so far today.
  3. I’m grateful for my husband’s success at quitting smoking with the electronic cigarettes.
  4. I’m grateful that my home is started to smell better without the cigarette smoke!
  5. I’m grateful that my momma seems to be doing well now.
  6. I’m grateful that my niece gave me this idea.
  7. I’m grateful that my friend S’s cancer has been discovered.
  8. I’m grateful that my friend C is doing better, although she is not as far along as she had hoped at this point.
  9. I’m grateful that I’ve done some cleaning around the bedroom today.
  10. I’m grateful for family and friends!
  11. I’m grateful for spell check.

More tomorrow.  What are you grateful for today?

  1. Wonderful idea, Sharon. I give thanks to your niece for this. I have always wanted to document what I’m grateful for, so this way, I can make sure I do as I will try to post along with you here, daily. Another great way to stay in touch 🙂
    Grateful for:
    Even though 1 of our 2 cars died, I still have transportation
    Even though things @ the law firm don’t seem solid, I still have a job
    Warm clothing, since the temperatures are holding steady in the 40’s
    The joy I get from getting into the quiet & doing Bible study
    My family (even though we haven’t been together in ages)
    The time I give myself to sit down & hand make cards. So therapeutic
    The joy I get when the recipients of those cards let me know how right on time the cards are
    Good books that touch my soul. Most recently, “The Healing” by Johnathan ODell
    Books by “T. Davis Bunn”; I finished “The Quilt” and am starting on “The Messenger”
    Grateful EVERYDAY that my dear friend, Cassie, who is terminally ill, was able to walk her THIRD Lymphoma Cancer walk. She is my daily inspiration.

    Love, me 🙂
