A Month of Thanksgiving . . .

A Month of Thanksgiving

In an effort to Smile . . . Breathe . . . and go Slowly . . .  I find myself reflecting much about our month of Thanksgiving.  So why not celebrate each day of this month of Thanksgiving?  I know that I truly am Thankful everyday. 

So in an an overly ambitious thought . . .

I'm going to attempt a brief post a day and create a Thanksgiving journal of sorts throughout the month.  

I've noticed that once I get on a gratitude thought . . . one almost always certainly leads to another and many more . . .

  I feel that being aware of the blessings and good things in our daily lives can sometimes be the catalyst or beginning of being more mindful in general.
While, I'm starting a little behind for the overly ambious thought, I have a little catching up to do . . . and I may forget … life happens, you know … so we’ll just see how it goes.  LOL!  No pressure.  No legalism.  No “oughts” or “shoulds” or “musts.”  Wanna join me? 

Just catching up here
1 - Family . . . first  So grateful for it, for the opportunity to be together forever, grateful to have another new grandbaby on the way (ooops!  Have I actually made that annoucement yet?)

2 - Blessings of the gospel - couldn't be a forever family without it, grateful for it's guidance and direction and DAILY influence in my life.

3 - Must say BEAUTY of the world all around, seems I can't walk outside these days without marveling at the colors that surround me on the hills, on the leaves, on the trees, on the ground.

I was just thinking the same thing...as soon as I start to name the things I'm thankful for, I surprise myself at how quickly my list grows!

In a very non-structured way, I think I'll join you on the month of thanksgiving.

I'll be jumping on the gratitude bandwagon this month.
Love your list, so far.
