I have made it to the last day and have managed to post everyday. I enjoyed doing my writing at the end of the day to a point that some days I think that I miss the midnight deadline. I started out doing both NaBloPoMo and posting a status everyday of things I am thankful for on Facebook. I kept up with NaBloPoMo, but gave up mid-November on the thankful statuses. I just didn't feel the passion anymore to continue to post things that seem to have become trivial to be thankful for. I did say that I would probably post on the blog my thankful status posts from Facebook on the last day so that is what I am going to do.
Day 1: I am thankful I was able to spend time with my family this evening attending Church, dinner, and Riley's last Spooky Gym as an elementary student!
Day 2: I am thankful that my children got to meet their great grandmother while in Thailand last year.
Day 3: I am thankful today for my health and for the ability to lead an active life.
Day 4: I am thankful that we live in a city with an awesome library system!
Day 5: I am thankful for my parents who are always there for me and my family. I love you very much.
Day 6: Thankful that I knew Linda Umstattd! Wonderful person and friend. May she rest in peace.
Day 7: Today I am thankful for my friends, old and new, young and old, near and far. You all have influenced my life and made it richer! Thank you for letting me be a part of your lives.
Day 8: I am thankful that I am able to foster my children's interests, whatever they may be, from trucks and trains to Lego, Nerf guns, archery, and hunting. The future looks to hold more artistic interests, drawing, pottery, and cake decorating.
Day 9: To my gramdmother, Mon Chaisurat, thank you for leading us by your example. We will remember you always.
Day 10: Thankful today for a day of rest in order to be refreshed to face the challenges of a new work week.
Day 11: Thank you to all those who serve and protect our country.
Day 12: I am thankful today to know many parents who love and care for their children; parents who take the responsibility of raising a child seriously and believe in being a parent first and then their friend.
Day 13: Thankful for all the opportunities I have been given in life, personal and professional.
Day 14: I am thankful for my education and that I am able to use my education to influence the lives of others.
Day 15: Thankful for my parents today and everyday! They have always supported me in whatever I wanted to do!
Day 17: I am thankful for all children; they teach you with their innocence and truthfulness.
Day 20: Thankful that we are able to help where we can, both in our local community and overseas!
Day 30: Last, but not least, thankful for my husband and the life we have built together. May we continue on our adventures together for all the days of our lives. Love you very much.
Well, after going through my post, I had 18 days of thankfulness. I have much to be thankful for in my life and although I try to concentrate of the positives in life, sometimes the negatives do get me down, but not for long!
