Thankful Here. Thankful There.

Thankful, thankful everywhere!

Actually, could I be any worse at being thankful? Back on November 1st, I pledged to keep November focused on being thankful and not rushing headlong into Christmas. Well, about 3 seconds after I made that pledge I was digging around in my boxes of Christmas goodies. Apparently, I'm distracted by shiny things.



On the upside, the kids and I have been talking about what we're thankful for each day. Nothing like an almost 5-year old to keep you accountable. I just keep forgetting to share them with you.



Today, I am thankful that I am contributing to Blissfully Domestic for the very first time. You can read my article for a bit of Thanksgiving inspirations here. Please, please, please come visit me there and leave me a comment. I'll be your BFF!



Today is the last day to get your name entered for the fabulous clutch purse from Red Ruby Rose. The winner will be announced tomorrow.

oh Im going to check out your article. I'll bet if you really gave it some thought, at some point each day you give thanks for at least one thing - you just aren't always aware of it.

Going right now over to BD! :) Congratulations on being a writer there!!

I stopped feeling guilty about decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. It's what works for our family for a stress free season! After all, it's the "attitude of gratitude" that matters for Thanksgiving, not whether there is a tree in the corner or not! :) I agree that shiny objects are just too hard to resist !!! LOL

Blessings,
Stacey

I heard of a "Thankful" jar but never did it, but wish I did. Everyday for 2-3 weeks before Thanksgiving everyone in the family writes down 1 thing they are thankful for then on Thanksgiving the family goes around reading each one. Doesn't that sound great! I'm gonna try to do that next year!!!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

We have started sharing what we are thankful for too! Every night at dinner we take turns saying what we are thankful for. It amazes me what my four year old comes up with. It has made me thankful that he has such an understanding and a thankful heart!
I am doing a giveaway! Stop by!
Have a great weekend!
