Thanks!

I have a lot to be thankful for.  I'm not going to list them all, but I am going to think about them.
I may even sit around for a while and write them all down, just to look at them.  I never did any of the lists that Kandas has suggested - the 100 things we want to do, etc.  This list just might prove useful.  Last night my oldest son was aggravated about everything and nothing.  I told him he couldn't get up til he wrote a list of 25 things he was thankful for.  I realized it might not be the best time for it, but then again, it couldn't hurt!  After he wrote them, I made him read the list out loud.  At first he begrudgingly spouted them off.  I told him he had to start over and read them slowly and THINK about each one as he said them.  Amazingly enough, he did just that and his attitude changed dramatically by the time he got to the end of his list.  More amazing is that I was on the list LOL

I'm looking forward to what I just might put on my list...

Before I can do that, I have to go thru my "list of things to do" for work.  I suppose I have to be thankful that I have that list, too:)

Happy Thanksgiving!

What an awesome idea Peggy. I always ask my dinner guests to give us one thing they are Thankful for on Thanksgiving. I think I will start asking my kids to make a list of things at other times of the year. In these hard times I think we all need to remember things we are thankful for. I am thankful for your friendship. You and all the SWz.
Happy Thanksgiving, Hugs, D
