November Challenge: Being Thankful

I wanted to give a shout out to Penny and want to encourage everyone to do her NOVEMBER CHALLENGE

Everyday you sign her guestbook and leave a comment of what you're greatful for, on that particular day. A few days before Thanksgiving she'll compile the list YOU sent and email you all the things you're personally greatful for and then you can read them outloud at your thanksgiving table. Isn't that an awesome idea? I'm doing and it will become a tradition that I'm going to have my immediate family do every year, so we keep the focus. I think I'll do it for December to, but have us list how we're greatful to God! I think we all get caught up in the hussle and bussle of everyday life and we focus so much on the negatives in our lives, that we REALLY need to focus on the good things. Maybe you don't have your health, but you might have an amazing family surrounding you and holding you up, etc. We ALL have trials, but I think the biggest trial is remember that we also all have joy and things we can be greatful for in our lives.

 

God Bless

I heard about Penny's challenge in another journal too so I'm going to do it; isn't it awesome to really stop and think what we have to be thankful for?

I like your idea for December, too, Christy :)

Thanks for the link for the November Challenge. It is a great idea.  I am gonna get my five year old to do the same in her "journal".
I was wondering if you would be interested in reading the small beginning I have in a book. It is in a private AOL journal. If you would be interested I would love it. I am looking for people that I don't personally know-so it is easier for them to be honest about it. Thanks.
