30 days to be Thankful

I figured it was time to sit down and catch up a bit on here since we're well into November and this is my favorite time of the year. It's my favorite because it's such a positive, happy and joyful time of year. We're preparing for thanksgiving, pulling out our decorations, playing Christmas music, lighting delicious smelling candles, shopping for those we love...What is there not to love?? I especially love it because in our family we take time to count our blessings, each day! I know I have missed a few days but my 30 days of a thankful heart list is coming soon. I have so much to be thankful for in my own personal life and even more when it comes to our family.
I want to encourage you to take time at the end of each day to think about a blessing in your life. It could be personal, it could be a blessing that happened to someone else that you are thankful for or it could be as broad as being thankful for something that happened in the world that touched your heart. Whatever it may be, take time to focus on the good things in life. Be positive! Enjoy this sweet time of the year.
I sat down with my little family tonight and drank egg nog with Christmas music and our Christmas tree candle in the background while sitting in my sun dress with the air conditioner on. Not really what I had in mind for fall but I loved it and savored every second of it...even though I wasn't in my sweats with cozy socks. My Christmas shopping is half way done. I LOVE shopping for my loved ones. I find so much joy in picking out something off a wish list. I don't want to wait last minute. I want to be thoughtful and enjoy the moment. We have decided that we will not be putting up our Christmas tree this year with Kate being so small and curious and a kitten who is beyond crazy. Totally bummed about it but looking forward to dressing our tree with Kate next year.
So many sweet blessings and things to look forward to. Stay positive out there and the joy that each day brings!
