As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed that I am more and more cognizant of all that I have. I don’t live a “perfect” life, and I’m still grumpy and unhappy at times, but my life as a whole is extremely fulfilling and happy. When I’m having a rough day as either a mom, wife or friend, I really try to focus on other aspects of my life that bring me joy.
So, since it’s November, and everyone knows you’re supposed to be thankful in November, I’m going to make an effort to write one thankful thought a day. I may write one sentence, one word, or paragraph after paragraph on this quest to recognize my fortunes and I’m going to attempt to include a photo each day as well. But, life gets hectic, so if I can’t/don’t/won’t, I’m forgiving myself in advance. (If anyone reads this and plans to write the reasons they are thankful this month, I’d love to read what you write about!)
