So...to start things off...don't go looking for Day's 1 through 6 of my own personal "30 Days of Thankfulness"...because you won't find them! Yes, I continue to be a slacker in the blogging department...I have no excuses other than to say that I just haven't done it!
A few weeks ago, I began to look into my November curriculum for our Children's Worship time (I lead this at our church). Our "theme" for the month is gratitude...very fitting as we move towards Thanksgiving and then on into Christmas. I began to think about my own "attitude of gratitude" and I realized that I have a great tendency to focus on what I don't have instead of what I do have.
So...I decided to devote my daily Facebook statuses to one thing each day that I'm thankful for. What was really cool is that others have joined in! And I have been AMAZED at how much more happier I feel. Now, I won't say that I don't have my moments of aniexty & self-doubt...or that I don't slip into thinking again about what I don't have, can't do and can't give. But for the most part, taking a moment each day to focus on what I am thankful for...and reading others' notes of thankfulness...has blessed me beyond measure.
With that being said, I am going to transfer my 30 days of thankfulness right here to my blog. I may have days where I play catch up, like today...but I hope to at least write a few short sentences every day about what I am thankful for.
Here goes! :)
Day 1: I am thankful for my job. The people I work with can drive me crazy, but I'm thankful to be able to have a job where I can laugh a lot and, for the most part, know that work will not be a drudgery every day. Mostly, I'm thankful to be part of a company that strives to serve and honor God with what we do.
