Welcome to Ten Things of Thankful!
We gather here each weekend to share our posts about the things we are thankful for in our lives, and sometimes just to report that we've survived a difficult week; when we start focusing on the positives and the silver linings, we are able see that life is good. We also encourage each other by sharing pieces of our own journey. The people who participate in TToT are a truly awesome bunch from all age groups and all walks of life; I hope you'll join us and invite your blog friends to do the same, everyone is welcome!
At Ten Things of Thankful we believe that there are many little things in our lives to be thankful for each day as well as the big things that stand out. Keep in mind that you are not required to list ten things if you can't come up with that many, nobody is keeping score, just do the best you can! You'll find that once you get started, more things tend to pop into your head! There is no specific format required for your post, you are encouraged to do it your way. Variety makes it interesting! :-)
This week's TToT link-up will open shortly after midnight (Central Time) on Thursday night, and will remain open until Tuesday night, so you have plenty of time to work on your post.
Please visit as many of the links as possible, sharing your thoughts is what this group is all about; and PLEASE check back next week for new links that were added later, those folks will appreciate your comments too!
Thank you for making our Ten Things of Thankful blog such a blessing in my life,
Josie Two Shoes
Please take a moment to answer the following question in the comments section below. It's a fun way for us to get to know each other a little better. If you had the power to bestow one virtue or attribute upon all children at birth, which one would you choose to give them?
One attribute to distribute at birth would be to love others well. By that i mean seeking the good of the other person, not just your own good.ReplyDelete
Awesome choice, Mimi, it certainly would make a difference in our world!Delete
Compassion. Empathy for others. Kindness. They all mean the same thing, I think, reminding us to "Do Unto Others".ReplyDelete
We think so much alike, Val, kindness and compassion are the first words that popped into my mind when I posed the question! A spirit of compassion makes such a difference!Delete
Great question! I'd give children the power of never losing their wonder in things. I feel this is a gift that we lose as we get older. I need to reclaim mine!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful gift that would be, Jo! Nothing is more wonderful to watch than a child who holds a total fascination for life, and believes all things are possible!Delete
In addition to the wonderful choices the people before me have made, I would add the gift of courage, so that children could grow up to face life undaunted and believing in their ability to cope and adapt to the situations and changes that life brings.ReplyDelete
Imagine a world where children grew up unafraid to try and to experience new things!Delete
I love all of these so far. I would add integrity. I feel like this keeps people following their heart.ReplyDelete
An excellent addition, Kerry! Papa Bear has more personal integrity than anyone I know, it makes him very real, and a true representation of what he believes. It would be great if everyone really "walked their talk"!Delete
