A Month of Thanks
So Facebook started a tradition a few years back....everyone was challenged to be thankful for something different for every day of the month of November...and then you put what you are thankful for in your status. It has always been one of my most favorite things to do as it makes you stop and think and be thankful for even what seem to be the little things.
Through the last few years, with things being tough financially, I have focused more and more on what is really important and I have found myself running out of days in the month to list of things to be thankful for.
This year was no different. I did notice, however, that many people on Facebook did not do it this year. Oh well...it didn't stop me.
I tried to save my most important peeps for the end...like saving the best for last..but certain days they were who I was most thankful for so I needed to give them the props immediately!
Here is my list of status updates from the month of November 2010. Things are so up in the air and scary for my family right now and yet I still wish I had at least another month of status updates to list the things I am thankful for.
