So, this being thankful thing.  It’s hard, isn’t it?  I mean, let’s be honest, there are moments, when it is hard to drudge up a quick list.  I have done the month of thanks before and on the whole, I try to keep things pretty positive in my life.  But, wow, there are just moments where you have to pause and think…seriously???  Do I need anymore challenges in life…NO!!!  lol!

Ok, so enough of the vent!  The point of this blog was to remember that some of the smallest things can be the ones you end up being most thankful for.

There will always be more things to do.

There will never be enough money.

There will never be enough time to spend with the ones you love.

There will always be that one “thing” that tries to break your groove.


There will also be another chance to fix things.

There will always be another chance to make that time to spend with a loved one.

There will always be the feeling the moment something gets accomplished.

There will always be a chance to change your course.

So, please stop and just be thankful for the littlest things.  Those are the things that keep up going, minute-by-minute, day-by-day…

This is my quick list…

  1. A working furnance that isn’t going to kill me.
  2. Shelves in massive cabinets.
  3. My American flag flying from the house.
  4. A new light shining on the front of house, so what if it makes it look creepy.
  5. My first electric bill not being so scary that I want to cry!

So, if you had to list 5 of the littlest things to be thankful for…what would they be?

  1. Lynds, I am thankful for friends I have had for almost 20 years; warm socks on a cold night, long-distance phone calls to those I love; a cat to keep my toes warm; and memories to last a lifetime. I love you and am so proud of you!! XOXO Sarah
