On the Other Hand - Count your blessings every day PDF Print

If you’ve been on Facebook the last couple of days, you’ve seen the posts of what people are thankful for. During the month of November, you are supposed to say something you are thankful for each day, not just on Thanksgiving. I’m three days behind so I better get busy and catch up.

Day 1: I am thankful for my wonderful husband. He drives me mad, makes me laugh, makes me smile and makes it worth coming home every day after work. We are enjoying each other’s company and working on some small improvements around the house. It feels good.


Days 2: I am thankful for the rest of my family from the top on down to the little guy, Ringo.


Day 3: I am thankful for all I have. This time of year really makes you take stock of what you have and what you may think you need but don’t. We never truly appreciate what we have until we realize how much we have compared to others.

Day 4: I am thankful for all my wonderful friends. To know crazy is to love crazy.

Day 5: I am thankful the fall season is upon us. Aaaaah. The crispness of the morning air. The crunch of leaves underfoot.

The only problem is now comes the pre-winter cleanup. The bushes need trimmed or the Christmas lights will look funny. The flower beds need weeded and everything cut back. Who knows, with the weird weather we’ve been having, we might have to mow one more time.

Day 6: I am thankful I am healthy and feel pretty good most of the time.

Day 7: I am thankful for my co-workers who make each and every day worth getting up and coming in to work.

Day 8: I am thankful for my job (that I have one and I truly enjoy it).

Day 9: I am thankful for my husband’s job. It takes two, baby.

I’m just going to go ahead and do Sunday and Monday, too. Why not. I’m on a roll.

Day 10: I am thankful I can now wear my layers. I love layers.

Day 11: I am thankful it’s snuggle weather!

Try it for the month and see what all you’re thankful for. You don’t have to log on to Facebook to make a list. It’s just as good if it’s sitting on the counter or the table. It just matters that you’ve thought about it and perhaps shared a few with someone else.
