30 Days of Thankful 2017

How in the world Thanksgiving arrived so quickly I'll never understand. This thing called life is flying by at record speeds or so it seems which makes me sit and think a minute about the good things in life which led to a couple of thankful lists.

I don't know why I don't write a thankful list every single day. I've tried but I seem to lose steam after a week or so in. It's not that I'm not thankful I just can't seem to write it down on a daily basis. I suppose it's good that I have them in my head but wouldn't a grateful journal be nice to find once we've moved on from this world? Anyway, my general-ish list focuses on the first non-specific thankfuls that came to mind.

30 Days of November Thankfulness (in no particular order):
  1. Friends who take the time
  2. Fresh baked cookies
  3. Pets
  4. Waking up each day
  5. Quiet
  6. Football season
  7. Cool weather
  8. Hot chocolate
  9. Differences
  10. Fall colors
  11. Holiday food prep
  12. Ceramic wizards
  13. Caring yet not intrusive neighbors
  14. Clean sheets
  15. Privacy
  16. Deep belly laughs
  17. Family time
  18. Family recipes
  19. Sister love
  20. Full moons
  21. Bulky sweaters
  22. Conversation
  23. Giving
  24. Kindness
  25. Parents
  26. Holiday movies
  27. Morning coffee
  28. Organized everything
  29. Encouraging words whether received or given
  30. Birds
I thought I would have a hard time coming up with 30 thankfuls but it turns out I could have gone on some more. Yes, I know I left daughters and grandchildren off the list but they're coming! They get their own list. 

Did Y'all do a thankful list this year? Is anyone good at keeping a daily grateful journal?

  1. Good Morning Pam,
    I need to start another one. I found that once I start one, it is like a snowball and it just gets bigger and bigger. I love your list. I do hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with all of your friends and family. I am thankful for you!!!

    1. I always start them and then they taper off. I have no idea how to keep it going. Thank you! Are you hosting this year? I'm thankful for you too, my wonderful friend who lives way too far away!

  2. Nice list! No, I start journals and then forget about them. I should do a thankful list.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that with journals. Yes, do one! I'd love to read it!

  3. My blogging friend, Rebecca Jo, over at Knit By God's Hand (she has a knitting Etsy shop, by the way) does a thankful journal and shares part of it with us every Thursday for her thankful link-up. She, and now you, give good inspiration to do a daily thankful list. Perhaps that will work for me in the New Year. Yes.

    1. Does she give tips on how to keep one going? I start out with a Bang! but it only last a little while and then fizzles out. I'll have to check out her blog and her shop!

  4. I am thankful for being another year older, birthdays are awesome the more I have the more time I have with my family


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
