30 Days of Giving Thanks - Day 1

30 days of Giving Thanks

There's something really neat going on over at Blessed Beyond Words. It's called 30 Days of Giving Thanks and I'm joining in.

Thanksgiving and Christmas-time have become so commercial. Sure, it's fun to decorate, wrap gifts, and bestow bunches of presents on our loved ones. But, in remembering the true meaning of the season, how appropriate it is to acknowledge all that we have to be thankful for.

For the next 30 days, I'll be posting one thing that I'm thankful for. Of course, I'm thankful for family, food, shelter, peace, health, etc. But, during this 30 Days of Giving Thanks, I'm going to recognize some of the little things in my life and around me that I'm thankful for.

Today, I'm thankful for a beautiful day outside! It's 57 degrees with clear, blue, sunny skies. All of the leaves are bright and colorful shades of orange, brown, yellow, red....it's really glorious!

Thanks to Angie for hosting 30 Days of Giving Thanks. Visit her at Blessed Beyond Words if you would like to link up and join the celebration.

Thank you so much for participating! I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you. I'm certain it will be an encouragement to all who happen by.

It's a beautiful day here, too. Chilly, but breathtaking as you watch the leaves change color on the trees.
