Thirty Days of Thankfulness

In recent years, social media outlets have asked participants to list one item a day they were thankful for during the month of November.

I decided to create a list with prayers included. Feel free to use my ideas and/or elaborate on them to create your own. You can use this list any time of year as well!

Bottom line is, no matter who you are, what you do, what you are going through, we all have a lot to be thankful for.

Even if you are not religious, please still read!

Feel free to share, but please always link back to here!

Thank you so much for reading, commenting, and sharing!

God Bless!

      It would be pretty hard to argue with your list, or add to it. Seems to me you have the basics of life all listed. Well done and beautiful!
