2011 Gratitude Challenge-November 30

Today I am thankful for imagination and ideas and my ability to learn new things.  Yes, for those who know me, this means I am working on something new.  And it is requiring me to learn some new tricks.  But hopefully I won’t have to keep you in suspense for too long.  Just know that I am excited about it and hopefully it will all pay off soon.  :)

On another note, this is the last day for our 2011 Gratitude Challenge.  But don’t forget that Thankful Thursday begins tomorrow, and will appear every Thursday, here on Garden of Learning.  I hope to see many of you participate with me on this.  I am excited to begin this new meme and will love getting to share in your blessings each week.  By sharing with me here, you will be blessing ME.  Hopefully concentrating on our blessings once a week, will help us escape some of the winter doldrums.  There are two meme buttons for us to start with.  You can choose the one you like best.  I will change things up every so often so we (ok… I) don’t get bored.

See you tomorrow!

What are you thankful for today?



2011 Gratitude Challenge-November 29

Today I am thankful for my husband.  He is my sweetheart and my best friend.  He is a terrific Dad to our son.

He takes great care of us.  He helps out around the house…yes, he cooks, and even does dishes and laundry.  He has stood by me through all sorts of things…cancer, blindness, inability to have kids, moodiness, lupus…I could go on and on.  I am totally blessed and boy, do I ever know it.  How I got so blessed, I am not sure.  But I am forever grateful.

2011 Gratitude Challenge-November 28

Today, I just want to say how grateful I have been for this challenge once again.  I have really enjoyed focusing on my blessings.   I am thankful that each of you have been participating with me as well.  It would be pretty lonely doing this all by myself!

I’ve been pondering how sad I will be to see this end.  It has been really good for me to find something positive to focus on, no matter how small it might be.  So I have decided to expand this challenge, and I hope you will be excited about it and join in with me.  No, we won’t be doing it every day except in the month of November.  But I thought it would be nice to do it once a week the rest of the calendar year.

So starting this week, I will be hosting a gratitude challenge every Thursday.  The 2011 Gratitude Challenge will end as scheduled on November 30th.  On Thursday, December 1st, we will move to the meme name Thankful Thursday.  Next November, we will go back to everyday and the meme will be the 2012 Gratitude Challenge.  But the rest of the year, we will just do Thankful Thursday.

Hopefully this will be a workable meme without loads of pressure on anyone.  It will just be a time we can all reflect on our blessings each week.  That way, we can look for the positive, even if everything around us looks bleak.

I hope you will join in with me.  I’ll have a new button or two ready before Thursday, so we will be good to go. ;)
