2010 Gratitude Challenge-November 30

Wow!  Can you believe that today is the last day for this meme?  Crazy!

Today I just want to say I am thankful for all of you who have participated with me this month.  I am glad I wasn’t doing this all by myself.  This is just one of those things you start and just never really know how it will turn out.  I am glad so many friends have joined in.  It has been a joy to read about all of the things you are thankful for and to express my own gratitude daily.  I really think it has helped me to change my outlook.  Things haven’t seemed so gloomy, despite all the things happening in the world.  As I have pondered all of the things I have been grateful for, I realize I am truly blessed.  I can feel the love that my Heavenly Father has for me and that He truly cares about all of the crazy things in my life.

I still have so many other things that I am grateful for that I never got to mention this month.  I will just have to find a way to incorporate them into the Holiday Bliss meme for December.  It should be fun to try.

Tomorrow starts a whole new meme and I think it will be loads of fun.  I love the holidays and this time of year.  I can’t wait to see all the neat things you each do with your families.  Maybe I will find some new traditions and some great inspiration for our homeschool.  I always want December to be a fun month in our homeschool.  I haven’t been able to make that happen the way I envision.  I hope to pull it off this year.  Perhaps this new meme will  help me keep my focus and inspire me to keep trying.

Thanks again for all of the gratitude posts and encouragement.  It has kept me going in so many ways.  I really appreciate each of you and your willingness to participate and share.

Today, I am thankful for each of you.  Thanks for making me smile.

What are you thankful for today?
