Here is my Day 29 Month of Thankfulness
1. New calendars and new beginnings (the print kind, not the digital kind)
2. Dark Chocolate
4. A warm bed on a cold day
5. Sleeping in on Saturdays
Every day, there is a joy. Sometimes you have to squeeze your eyes really hard to see it, but it is there.
I challenge you to write down 5 things you are thankful for every day for a month.
Thank God for those little things (or big things) and watch how your perspective on life changes.
Choose thankfulness over bitterness.
2 Cor. 4:15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Day 29 Month of Thankfulness
This is the month of thankfulness Day 28. Thankfulness is a choice. Amazingly enough, it is a decision to focus on the good instead of the bad. Shocking, I know! Focusing on the bad is so easy because what we perceive as bad is everywhere.
Please, for this month, try to list 5 things you are thankful for on a daily basis. Find the joy in the small acts of kindness and the simple things of life. This list can be from the smallest of small things to the biggest of bigs. It can be common (electricity or food) or uncommon (fuzzy socks and asparagus).
Remember that God is bigger than all those other bad things. There is a greater purpose, here on this Earth, and that is to enjoy the blessings around us. Stop, smell the roses, enjoy life, smile more, bask in the sunlight, and revel at the stars.
Month of Thankfulness Day 28
1. The fact that I don’t have to cook the day after Thanksgiving
2. Capybara and Okapi’s
4. Elderly ladies (My Mentor, My Best Friend)
5. Having my Christmas shopping done (Christmas Ideas for You)
Today is Birthday Thankfulness Day 13! I’m so excited. I love my birthday. It is not the gifts that I get but the song I get every single birthday morning. My Martha calls at the butt crack of dawn and sings Happy Birthday at the top of her lungs. She is so loud that you have to hold the phone away from your ear. Let me tell you, it is FANTASTIC! I look forward to her calling every single year!
Now, I talk to my mama every day. Somedays, I talk to her several times in a day. She is my oak and I enjoy just hearing her voice. Having said that, birthdays are different. She has impressed on my memory the importance of family, togetherness, and love. This is done regardless of the situation, you KNOW you are loved by her on this special day and every day.

5. My M.O.M.
I am choosing to look at the positives, though the negatives are trying to consume me. There were hurtful statements thrown around, disappointment, discouragement, broken down vehicles, confusion, uncertainty, irritation…
People will fail you. They are fallible and we live in a fallen world.
I still choose to throw up my hands with a broken hallelujah to praise the ONE who sustains me.
I may not be able to control the stupid actions of others….but I can control my reaction!
When I don’t feel like I can control my reaction…I will choose to pray and stand on His promises.
Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight your battles…you simply have to be still.”
