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 your part in making our Ten Things of Thankful blog such a blessing,
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. What makes a person beautiful to you?
A beautiful person thinks of others and us kind, sharing skills and goodness with everyone. Someone who walks with you in sadness and dances with you in joy.ReplyDelete
A person like this would make a wonderful friend!Delete
A beautiful person has a heart of love.ReplyDelete
Simply perfect, Mimi! Yes, that covers it all!Delete
A beautiful person is kind and caring to all living things in his/her words and actions, exemplifies integrity, and approaches life with faith and a positive attitude, and looks for ways to make a difference. A beautiful person appreciates life and what they've been given.ReplyDelete
A beautiful person, to me, is someone who is kind and thinks nothing of helping others, but also looks after themselves. They make people laugh, they don't take themselves too seriously, but they're also able to talk about the serious side of life.ReplyDelete
I like the point you make about also taking care of themselves, and about knowing when to laugh and play and when to be serious! Beautiful people understand balance!Delete
I agree, so incredibly important... and increasingly rare. Integrity ranks right up there beside it.ReplyDelete
This varies, but generally I tend to see the beauty that comes from within that is displayed through a persons actions and words. I also notice peoples' eyes, not because they seem particularly beautiful, but because there seems to be a sparkle, a glow, or an interest. They treat others kindly. They are not abrasive in speech or manner. They are more interested in listening and getting to know others than expounding their own agendas.ReplyDelete
I so agree with you about the light in the eyes, I pay attention to that! I like you noting how they speak and also that they are listening, some people never quite master the art of being a good listener. :-)Delete
Someone who can feel what other people might be feeling, at least attempt it anyway.ReplyDelete
I agree with that, Kerry! Empathy is so important, the ability to feel and to care!Delete
