I heard about an interesting way to be thankful this month: make a daily post of what you are thankful for during the month of November. I have tried to be consistent in my posts each day; here you will see a list of what I made for which I am truly thankful.
Thursday, November 26: thankful for forgiveness… “amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.” Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
Wednesday, November 25: I’m thankful for the holidays that remind me of what’s truly important, and all the old-fashioned music and memories that come along!
Tuesday, November 24: thankful for a Sovereign God who knows the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, the peace the passes all understanding.
Monday, November 23: thankful for fresh starts and second chances in life!
Sunday, November 22: I’m thankful for being a woman, and all of its qualities: daughter by birth, sister by chance, wife by love, mother by opportunity, friend by choice, and child of heaven by faith!
Saturday, November 21: thankful for the hypocrisy of mankind… it enables me to stop looking at the speck in my friend’s eye and pull out the giant log in my own eye!
Friday, November 20: thankful that my husband is still finding new clients and able to retain the existing ones… so, touche’ to this depressed economy! When there’s a will, there’s a way!
Thursday, November 19: thankful for little daily reminders that tell me to slow down and enjoy each moment.
Wednesday, November 18: Thankful for my relationships with people…. othewise this social networking thing would be in vain!

Monday, November 16: I’m thankful that I can homeschool my kids in freedom. I may not always have this opportunity, but for now, I love teaching my own at home!
Sunday, November 15: I’m thankful for my faith and for the many friends and family who share it with me 🙂
Saturday, November 14: I’m thankful that my children have chosen good friends to associate with… it’s a continual process to teach them that “bad company corrupts good morals” (from Proverbs)…

Thursday, November 12: thankful for healthcare facilities like Phoenix Childrens Hospital who are taking care of my niece.
Wednesday, November 11: I am thankful for all of the veterans who have served our country. I am grateful to my father, who served in World War II and Korea, and is now resting peacefully in heaven. May God continue to bless those who serve Him through acts of selflessness and honor.
Tuesday, November 10: I am thankful for beautiful weather in the fall in the Southwest!
