With the United States' Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, now is a great time to turn off the news, put down the paper, step away from the negativity of the world, and contemplate the many reasons we have to be thankful.

Ten Things of Thankful: Unspoken and Otherwise

I'm composing this post quickly on October 6th, and scheduling it to publish on the 12th. Some of you know that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Tonight, at the women's session of General Conference, President Nelson challenged us to take a 10-day fast from social media. I'm starting my fast on the morning of Sunday, October 7th. 

The church certainly recognizes the great tool technology is, but it can also be a great distraction, and I'm looking forward to seeing how my life is different in the 10 days I'm off. 


You are certainly welcome to join me in the break, but I also wanted to make sure the link to the TToT was up for those who want to participate. 

I'm thankful for you, and I look forward to linking up with you again after the fast!

Ten Things of Thankful: October is Here!

Photo: fall leaves provide a background for the quote: "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." (L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Aren't you thankful for Octobers? Looking out my window right now, I see red leaves of sumac, and just-starting-to-yellow aspen leaves. The clouds above the mountains are dark, and if the weather forecast is to be believed, we will have more thunder and lightening and rain tonight--probably right as this post is published. I love the coziness of autumn.

Whether or not you enjoy this season, I hope you will join us in another week of the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop. Read what the other bloggers have posted, comment, and share in this thank-fest! 😊
