Over the years I have seen people record something that they are thankful for each day in November leading up to Thanksgiving.
I have always wanted to do that but never have. This year, I am doing it…I want to have an “attitude of gratitude”. At the end of the morning post here on the blog, I am going to put one thing that I am thankful for…some religious, some quirky, some serious, some fun-whatever the mood strikes me!
If you want to join in, feel free to chime in on the comment section and tell something you’re thankful for too. Let’s face it. Having an attitude of gratitude is good for us all.
Today I am thankful for a husband who will do the dishes so that I can finish up a quilt. Yep-that happened last night. I’ll tell you, that Hubby of mine is a keeper.

I am thankful for family. My hubby is no longer with me on earth, but I am fortunate to have so many family members living close by and we gather together frequently. My sister is my best friend, and her daughters are dear friends too. I’m truly blessed.
I am thankful for my sister. Let’s just say we did not like each other growing up. Today, she is my best and dearest friend and couldn’t imagine my life without her.
I am very thankful for the Misters help in doing all the prep work for dinner every night so all I have to do is actually cook it.
I’m thankful for my wonderful daughter and her husband. Both have been very helpful this year as I faced some health issues. Love them so much
I am grateful for the “new” friends I’ve made since moving to NC 7 years ago.
I’m thankful for a wonderful Hubby that never says a word when I serve him leftovers. And I have to also let you know that he was a super care giver to me when I was going through Chemo…..I thank God everyday for him…[we have no family where we live]
I am thankful for my bunko group. We’ve been playing together once a month for 15 years. We’ve been though babies, teenagers, divorces, marriages and cancer together. I love these ladies!
I’m doing that on my blog this month!
One from today was:
…being able to witness what the vows: “to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part” in action through my dad’s devotion to my mom. It’s a beautiful thing. (My mom suffered a stroke two months ago.)

I am very thankful for the job of my dreams. About two months ago I was hired by my local quilt shop to work three days a week. I love this job so much and my employers are awesome.
I’m so thankful for my husband, who carries on most of the household chores so I may enjoy retirement and make quilts!!
I love this! I’m thankful for my son being out of Afghanistan and home from the army. While his moving in with us has presented some challenges, I’m thankful to be able to get reacquainted and give him some TLC. And thank you for the reminder that there truly is something to be thankful forEVERYDAY!
I am thankful that there have been American men and women from all nationalities that have served our country to protect our freedom! World War II seems to be a literary theme for me right now and I am so grateful that their stories have been preserved. I am also so awed by the men and women who are currently serving and I pray for them to have courage, strength, wisdom, and God’s protection from harm.
