I read in Woman's World that, according to a recent University of Pennsylvania study, 94% of individuals who set aside three minutes once a week to write down three things they are thankful for experienced an increase in happiness....and of course it must be true since I read it in Woman's World!.....But really, I have noticed a difference in myself since starting Thankful Thursday. Not only do I think about what I'm thankful for on Thursday, I think about it all week in anticipation of writing this post! WOW! What a bonus just for starting this blog.....so here goes another week.......
*I was thankful to find that sweet little sticky note attatched to my pillow before bed one night.
*I am thankful that I did not lose any "followers" after my post about the snot...I think I might have even gained a follower yesterday.
*For all my Biggest Loser buddies...I"m thankful that Brady was eliminated this week and I am hopeful his wife will soon follow... hmmm not sure that one really follows the spirit of thankful thursday...but if you watch the show you'll understand....
*I am thankful for the 2 blogger awards I received this week...I'm feelin' the love!
*I am thankful for cherry coke zero, jellybeans, and rice krispie treats...yummy
*I am thankful that Nick's flag football season ended with a win and that he had a great time playing the game.
*I am thankful for Alex, Nick, and Nathan's teachers (past and present)...they are ALL so amazing and we are so blessed to have them as a part of our children's lives.
*I am thankful for the blessing of motherhood.
*I am thankful for my husband and my sons...they are the light of my life.
*and I am thankful for Jesus Christ, my Savior, who died for my sins.
What can you be thankful for today?--I'll bet you can think of 3 things!
