Ten Things of Thankful: October 4, 2019

Ten Things of Thankful
Photo: A sunset with the caption, "Ten Things of Thankful"

Happy October! For those of you just joining us at the Ten Things of Thankful, let me explain a bit about this blog hop. Each week, people from all over take time out from their schedules to think about the things they are thankful for, write a blog post listing those things, then link the post up with the Ten Things of Thankful (TToT) blog hop. Some posts are deep; some posts are light and filled with humor; some posts combine those elements. Posts can be long or short, photo-heavy, a numbered list, poetry . . . you get the idea. Ten is a suggestion, but one item sometimes counts for ten. The idea is to look around, recognize the good in life, express gratitude for those things, and connect with others through comments. Whether this is your first week of participating, or you've been around for years, welcome!

Ten Things of Thankful: Fall is Here!

Ten Things of Thankful
Photo: A sunset with the caption, "Ten Things of Thankful"
Here in the northern hemisphere, even the calendar now says that autumn has arrived. There is just something about fall that seems to make my thoughts turn to gratitude. Maybe it is because Thanksgiving is on the horizon, but I think it is more than that. Whatever the reason, I hope you will join the Ten Things of Thankful community and share with us what you are thankful for this week!

Depending on when you are reading this (and assuming the link is still open) it is either the end of August of the beginning of September.  I recently learned that World Gratitude Day is September 21st. I think we should all warm up for it by making a list of ten things we are thankful for! Ready, set, GO! 😊

To state the obvious, a human runs this blog. And this week that human (me) forgot to get this post written and scheduled to publish prior to the opening of the link-up party going live. I'm thankful for your patience with me, and for co-hosts that keep the ball rolling when I'm falling behind!

Is it back to school time where you live? When I was a child, back to school time came after Labor Day, but it seems like school now starts in August. I liked school, but I am thankful that I didn't have to start in August.

As you might remember, in June I announced the return of co-hosts to the Ten Things of Thankful. One person said she would be willing to co-host, but she needed to wait until August. Well, guess what? It's August! Please welcome Lisa of The Prolific Pulse as our latest co-host!

I'm thankful for all the co-hosts and bloggers who help spread the word about this blog hop and, of course, for all of you who participate! A blog hop wouldn't be a blog hop without you!

Wow! What a party we had last week! In fact, if you are reading this on Friday or Saturday (June 14-15), the celebration is still going on! We extended the link up to allow everyone who wanted to to join the 6th anniversary party of the Ten Things of Thankful. If you thought you missed your chance, there is still time to link up! Thanks to everyone for making this such a great event!

If you are here for this week's link-up, though, you are in the right place. Let us know what you are thankful for this week!

Now We Are Six!

Photo: A bunch of colorful balloons against a glittery background. Three balloons spell out "Ten Things of Thankful," while the others have "TTOT" on them.
In June of 2013, Lizzi Lewis began a blog hop she called the Ten Things of Thankful. The idea was simple, yet powerful: list 10 things that you are thankful for each week. She invited others to join her in co-hosting the blog hop, and thus was born a strong worldwide community whose uniting factor was thankfulness. Lizzi encouraged us to look for the silver linings when life was dark and stormy, and showed us by example how to do just that.

Years passed, and Lizzi turned the hosting over to Josie Two Shoes, who was the perfect person to continue the TToT tradition. Both Lizzi and Josie wrote detailed, thorough comments, and made all participants feel welcome. When Josie decided to step down from hosting, I volunteered to take her place, because I believe in the power of thankfulness, and I wanted to make sure the Ten Things of Thankful remained open. 

Now, here we are in June 2019, and the TToT is 6 years old. A.A. Milne knows that six is a wonderful age, and I anticipate great things ahead for the TToT. Whether you are a long-time participant, or are joining us for the first time today, welcome, and thank you! Please make sure to read the linked posts, and comment. Commenting on comments is also allowed. A special shout-out to Kristi of Finding Ninee who was one of the early co-hosts, and who hosts the blog hop Finish the Sentence Friday. Today we are joining forces and the FTSF prompt is Ten Things of Thankful. Welcome to the FTSF folks who are joining us today!

Without further ado, let's get this party started! Ready, set, GO!

Ten Things of Thankful: One Week Until 6 Years!

Ten Things of Thankful
Photo: A sunset with the caption, "Ten Things of Thankful"
The excitement is growing; the 6th anniversary celebration of the Ten Things of Thankful begins in just one week! Actually, it will begin in slightly less than one week. For next week only, the link will open on Thursday night at 8 p.m. Mountain time, the same time that the Finish the Sentence Friday blog hop goes live with their link. Kristi of Finding Ninee contacted me earlier this week to ask if the TToT and FTSF could team up for the anniversary celebration, and of course I was delighted to say yes. Everyone is invited!

Fun fact: in the early days of the TToT, both Kristi and I were co-hosts. Because we had the same name, to keep things straight, I was known as K2. I can't remember who came up with the moniker, but it is indicative of the welcoming nature of the TToT community--a small blogger is made to feel like a mighty mountain of a writer.😊

Be sure to join us next week for the big celebration, and help spread the word! THANK YOU!!!!!

(And in the meantime, tell us what you are thankful for this week.)

Are you getting excited? Many of us in the United States have a 3-day weekend starting on Saturday, but that isn't the reason for my question.

Several bloggers who were there in the beginning are hoping to join us on this momentous occasion, so get the cupcakes ready, hang a banner, and get ready for a wonderful, thankful weekend! And what better way to prepare than to write a Ten Things of Thankful post for this week's blog hop!

Ten Things of Thankful: 5 Weeks Until 6 Years!

Ten Things of Thankful
Photo: A sunset with the caption, "Ten Things of Thankful"
Once upon a time, June 8, 2013 to be exact, an English blogger with a poetic way with words invited the world to join her in a new blog hop: The Ten Things of Thankful. Lizzi nurtured the young blog, invited others to help her spread the word, and welcomed a motley group of bloggers, thus forming a community around the theme of thankfulness. 

As I read over Lizzi's first Ten Things of Thankful post, I saw that she envisioned the blog hop to be long-lasting. :-) We aren't quite to the 40 year anniversary yet, but in only 5 weeks, we will be at the 6 year anniversary. The Ten Things of Thankful has seen changes over the years. It started as Lizzi's brainchild, started with 8 co-hosts, then quickly grew to 10. After a few years, Lizzi handed the reins over to Josie Two Shoes. When Josie needed a break, I (Kristi of ThankfulMe) offered to open the blog hop door each week. 
I'm thankful for Lizzi and Josie Two Shoes. Without them, there wouldn't be a TToT. 

As the anniversary of the start of the TToT approaches, I hope that bloggers new and old will consider writing a post for the June 7, 2019 link up. Invite your friends and help spread the word! In the meantime, let us know what you are thankful for this week by linking up below. THANK YOU!!!!
