I didn't follow through with the 30 Days of Thankful (otherwise known as November) on Facebook this year. It seems repetitive to me.
See, I do this fabulous activity from The Mind Aware with Dana Wilde that's called '10 Minutes before Bed.' It helps focus your mind on things that are good to focus on before the semi-hypnotic state we call sleep. Part of the activity is listing what you're thankful for (or what's going right, or a few other options once you've been doing it for a while). So every night, before I go to bed, I make a list under a heading that says gratitude, or thankful, or appreciation...you get the idea.
I've chosen to take a day every week on my blog and talk about one or more things that make me feel thankful.
Today I'm really thankful for a nice simple one. Warm things. I hate the cold. I appreciate my heated mattress pad, snuggling under the covers, the magic blanket in our family room (which is magic because it makes you fall asleep once you're under it all warm and cozy), hoodie sweatshirts, and a working furnace, just to name a few.
Feel free to join in! Add what you're thankful for in the comments, or write your own post and link back. Talking about what we're thankful for makes everyone feel more blessed and positive, I think.
