TToT - 7/21/17

Ten Things of Thankful

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,

    1. I believe that too, Zoe, I refuse to fall into the trap of believing that most people have bad intentions. I think most of us are trying to be our better selves!

  3. One thing I have learned about people is that they rarely change. That can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing like in cases of addiction. Thanks for hosting :)

    1. I do know some people that seem to fall into the same cycle over and over again, but I hold out hope that just maybe something will click in their heart or head and motivate them to make a life change. It can happen, but it's not easy for sure.

  4. I've learned that being kind to people doesn't always assure that they will be kind to you in return; but do it anyway, it's good for your soul! :-)

    1. I think it's important to realize this so that people don't easily take advantage of your kindness. Don't ever stop being kind, just don't allow yourself to become a doormat or a victim of abuse either!

    1. I believe that too, no matter how damaged a person may be, there is still that spark of goodness and hope.
