A Year of Thankfulness.




Yeah, I truly mean it!  For those that have just found this blog, I am not a fan of New Year's Eve.  And New Year's Day is just another day off for me;  a normal day that happens to be a day of college football and black-eyed-peas;  for me.   Everyone in my family hates them so why bother with a big pot of them.  Here is my entry from last year: (Happy) New Year 

I'm not one for making resolutions.  I did have a pretty good year last year.  I wrote a novel.  My kid turned 21.  My youngest got a job.  I can happily say it was better than most years gone by.

Last November, I participated in a Facebook assignment, for lack of a better word.  "Thirty Days of Thanksgiving."  As December quickly approached, I was sad to see the 'assignment' end.  I started thinking how nice it would be to just keep it going.  A friend of mine suggested doing something like it for an entire year.  I suggested extending the thirty days to three hundred-sixty five.  I don't think she liked that idea; maybe she did, but didn't think she could keep up... I forget.  

I started thinking about it.  I have been counting my blessings a lot, lately.  The shooting in CT had me really counting them a lot more. So, why not?  Why not try to be thankful for an entire year?  I am thankful all year long.  Do I feel the need to prove it?  No.  It just might be fun to document.  If others are bored or irritated by it, whatever.  Move along.  I'm  doing this for no one but me.  And my kids.  Future grandkids might get a chuckle or a bit of their Nona's wisdom, someday. Fine.

I plan on posting a very condensed note on Facebook once an evening, then coming here, and elaborating a little - every day.  I think I can do it.  I hope I can.  So, without further adieu, here is today's entry:  Today I am thankful for:
