27 Days of Thankful - Day 1


One of my favorite Blogging friends Amanda is counting down the days to Thanksgiving with gratitude. She has some sad memories associated with the loss of her father as a teenager at Thanksgiving time. She wanted a way to remember all the good things in life and I've decided to join her. The idea is to post something, anything, no matter how silly or how small that you are thankful for each day. Thanks Amanda for helping me remember!

For my first day I want to express my gratitude for the kindness of others. I have been the recipient of such kindness lately. You may remember my post here about my wonderful friend Heidi and her service to my family.

I also have felt an outpouring of concern through the internet. From the wonderful friends I have never met in person, but developed a close connection to through blogging, to old friends I haven't seen in years, to current friends whom I see on a regular basis. All the love coming our way is truly humbling.

To top it off, my true hero, my mom, took it upon herself to show up at my house on Saturday with a big pot of chicken noodle soup (with homemade noodles!), a casserole, jello salad, and a big dish of pork chops and rice. Yes...we have been eating like kings, and will continue to do so for several days! She then came back to take my girls (who weren't sick at the time) trick or treating because I was too sick, and Hubby had to work.

My life is so good. I am more blessed with friendship and love than I have ever been at any other time in my life. Thank you all.

What are you thankful for today?

Your mom is so kind and generous with all of the food she brought to you.

Oh, this is so sweet! It's kinda like my list, my friends in real life and on the internet are amazing and my mom made us a couple different meals and muffins, bread and jello too! It's so nice to feel loved.
I love you!

I love that so many people are doing this this year. I did an entire month of thanks last year, and I look back at it with fond memories. It is so good to be thankful for all of the MANY blessings in life. As I'm sure that you'll see, you begin to look at all of those little things that we sometimes overlook that truly are a blessing to be recognized. Best of luck on your journey!

What a great mom! What I am grateful for today? A blog-based call to thankfulness! Thank you for the reminder to a month long awareness. :)

I am thankful that when my son was called on last minute to say the prayer in primary he was able to and didn't freak out like he often would.

And what a wonderful idea. Hope you all continue to get better quickly
