I have said it before...about a million times (*smiles*)...and I'll likely say it at least a million more...this is my favorite time of year! I've noticed on FaceBook that so many of my friends and their friends are doing the 30-day challenge. They are posting something each day in November that they are thankful for. I think that's a great idea. What bothers me is that while we seem to do this big thankful thing in November what are we doing the other 11 months of the year?
Don't get me wrong...I, like each of you, am thankful all year long but just how often do we truly express our thankfulness during the other months of the year? I know for me...the awareness of being thankful is not near as strong December thru October. Yes, I am thankful and yes, I express that BUT not near as much as I should.
Ralph Marston once said, "What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it--would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have."
Country crooner Willie Nelson has said, "When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
Viki King said, "You won't be happy with more until you're happy with what you've got."
