A Month of Thanks: Part III

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Holy cow, it's DECEMBER! Everyone at work always makes fun of me for getting so worked up at the beginning of each month, but it really does shock me how fast time goes by. I'm kick-starting this month by wrapping up my month of thanks.

November 21
I am thankful for random acts of kindness. I am thankful for how little it takes to make someones day - that every smile matters. I am thankful for the kind people I have in my life that just constantly warm my hear.

November 22
I am thankful for traditions. I am thankful that Adam and I get to start making our own holiday traditions this year. I am thankful for Pinterest for giving me so many good ideas for traditions to start this year and carry on forever.

November 23
I am thankful for vacations! I am thankful that I have the next four days off of work to spend time with the hubs and our wonderful families. I am thankful that I don't work in retail, so I don't have to prepare for the craziness of Black Friday/Weekend.

November 24 - Happy Thanksgiving!
I am just plain thankful! I am thankful that I was able to spend the day with both of our families. I am thankful for the crazy, loud, informal Thanksgiving at my parents' house and the calm, formal Thanksgiving at Meagan & Nathan's. I am thankful that I got to enjoy the best of both worlds on such a wonderful day.

November 25
I am thankful for the holiday season. I am thankful that I can officially start listening to Christmas music! I am thankful for the quality time we will be spending with our families, and the overall joyfulness of the season.

November 26
I am thankful for Coach Irwin of the Lassiter HS Football team. I am thankful that my little brother, Mitchell, gets to play often and that he has not been hurt. But more so, I am thankful for Coach Irwin's giving heart to the Foster family. I don't think he has any idea what kind of impact he is having on that family. Click here to read more.

November 27
I am thankful for lazy weekends with my hubs. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to spend so much quality time together, when I know that is not the case for many couples and families. I am thankful that no matter how much time I spend with him, I never get sick of him...yet. ;)

November 28
I am thankful my mom is a realtor! I am thankful that she held our hand during this rental process and that we officially have the keys to our new house! I honestly don't know how we would have done it without her, and I most certainly don't know how people go through the process of buying a house without losing their minds!

November 29
I am thankful for books (and I can't believe it's taken me 29 days to be thankful for this!). I am so thankful that I absolutely love reading. I am thankful for the many worlds I have been transported to through reading. I am thankful that I can get lost in a good book for hours, even days. I am thankful that no matter what my mood, I can always count on a good book to instantly relax me.

November 30 
I am thankful that I have so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful that over the past 29 days, it has been relatively easy to be thankful for something different every day. I am thankful for all of the blessings I have received in my short life of 23 years.
