30 Things to Be Thankful For

In November, I posted this. And in the sidebar of my blog I kept a running list of things I was thankful for. I had such a fun time with this. I saw that Xandra made a post with her list to keep for posterity and I thought I would do the same. Also, I must say thanks to Leah for sharing the idea with me!

(drum roll please)

I'm Thankful For...

3 yr old speak
My smiling six year old soccer player
Crunchy Leaves
Stumbling upon a waterfall
My Striped Pajama Pants
My purse sized Bible
An Understanding Photographer
My Blankie
Ballroom Dancing with my Honey
A Free Saturday Morning
Our Small Group
NERTZ Crazed Friends
Pot Roast simmering in the Crock Pot
Meals in the freezer
Cheap Babysitting
Family Fun
Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast
School Vacation
A Night Out w/out Kids
Cute Babies
Thanksgiving Dinner...YUM!
Thanksgiving Leftovers...YUM!

Thank you, Lord for these blessings and MORE!

Wonderful list!! It really helps me to focus on the positive and I love reading what other's are appreciative for.

Janelle said...

I love God's strength and peace in you. That is so valuable.

Great list!

Leah in Iowa said...

What a great idea! I wish I would have thought to do that, too! Part of my post yesterday was about the Thanksgiving Challenge coming to a close, so I think I'll edit it to add this part about making the list into a post to keep. Thanks, too, Xandra!

Fran said...

Very good list Alana! Oh, to be grateful. Why save it only for Thanksgiving?! I'm going to try to be more intentional this new year. You've encouraged me.


Rochelle said...

This is a great idea! And what a great list. Cheap baby sitters, and bedtime were among my favorites!!

Melissa @ Breath of Life said...

I didn't think of doing that. I just deleted my list without giving it any thought.

(Hitting my head against a wall now)

Earen said...

I can say a big AMEN to many of those too! I would add a wonderful peppermint mocha from Starbucks!

I've loved keeping up with your list! We do just have so much to be thankful for...we should record them more often.

Hi , I found your blog by searching for "Nertz" online. It is cool to see others that know the game. I hope you don't mind but I just wanted to let you know about playnertz.com. It has got a bunch of Nertz information there as well as videos and online Nertz games. Feel free to check it out. Also you and your friends/family are welcome to join fellow Nertz players in The National Nertz Association while you are there.
