30 Days of Thankfulness Challenge

Last year, in my Facebook Status' during the month of November, I challenged myself to only write a post that showed thankfulness (I even starte it with "I am thankful for . . ".  Some were easy, some where not.  I was thankful for everything from hitting a deer (we have insurance!) to the mini-van I had to drive while my truck was in the shop (and I hate mini-vans!) I noticed that November was better when I concentrated on what was good.  I also had quite a few people thank me for being thankful and that made me feel good too!  So this year, I'm carrying it one step further and throwing out a Thankfulness challenge.  Starting November 1st, post one blog a day telling about something you are thankful for in anyway you want.  By that I mean - share pictures of your family, a sunset, the first snowfall, a surprise or unexpected "something"; share a link to a song - I love music and sometimes a song reminds me of something to be thankful for; share a written post - it could be a one liner to a paragraph of something you are thankful for at this time.  Thankfulness can be funny too - so be thankful for the little things too! 

So who's up for this???  I wish I had a button for you to grab but I am still trying to figure out all of this code stuff despite some GREAT tutorials out there!   I spent about an hour the other day trying to get a code to add to the above picture to work and couldn't do it!  Maybe before the 30 days is up I'll be thankful for figuring out how to make the code work!1

So feel free to Link Up with me throughout this next month :-) I'd love to read what you are thankful for too!!
