A friend of mine has been involved in a daily challenge called the Thanksgiving Project. Every day she blogs about something she is Thankful for. I have become addicted to her thoughts and smile as soon as I get my notification she posted. They vary as the day. Sometimes they are little gratuities life has to offer. Sometimes they are more in depth with people or memories she loves and cherishes.
Yes...I have enjoyed the concept......for LIFE is Grand. Not getting political here, but just making an observation........Life can be hard. It seems like there are two groups in this country and we are most definitely divided. I may or may not like the circumstances at the moment....but I DO LOVE LIFE.
I read my friend's entry yesterday how she was so thankful for her outdoor grill and had the best hamburger in the world that night Then....today.....I read other posts by teammates.......and I ......realized......we ALL need to take my friend's approach and be THANKFUL for the good in our lives as opposed to the pain and misery we seem to be too willing to share.
SO.......I have decided to join my friend's approach to be THANKFUL...no matter how hard it may be on some days.
My daily reflections will be called A TIME TO PAUSE.....which gives time to reflect and realize just how precious my day actually is.
my first TIME TO PAUSE.......is for my friend Pamela for sharing her Thanksgiving Project. She has never missed a day.......she hasn't quit being thankful every single day for something in her day....her life. I am Thankful......for my friend.....her project.....her friendship.
