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 an uplifting experience!

Please take a moment to answer the following questions in the comments section below. It's a fun way for us to get to know each other a little better. If you could have one living person that you haven't seen recently show up at your door on Christmas Eve, who would you choose?
That's a hard one. Any of my friends from my yearly sanity retreat would do, actually. If they all showed up, that would be even better!ReplyDelete
As much fun as you have together on your yearly retreat, I can only imagine all the love and laughter that would transpire if you gathered on Christmas Eve!Delete
Well, I have actually never seen Nicolas Cage in person, but I sure would like him to show up at my door :)ReplyDelete
Now that sounds like a pretty cool Christmas gift, Ellen! :-))Delete
Any relative or friend I haven't seen in the last year - there are a few...xReplyDelete
I agree with that Maz, I would be delighted to see anyone that is part of my extended family/friends circle.Delete
My mom. I don't really care if I never see the rest of my relatives, but I'm really missing Mom right now. And I can't just give her a call. I do talk to her frequently, and I hope she hears me. This was supposed to get easier with time, it isn't.ReplyDelete
I can relate to that wish, I miss my Mom too. Christmas will never be quite the same without her to share it with. I know your Mom hears you and is as close to you as the next room! <3Delete
I would like to have a Christmas Eve visit from a friend I've known since high school days. She's had a very difficult year, and would have so much fun talking and laughing in to the night. She would feel how much she is loved.ReplyDelete
Old friends are awesome, so many fun times share to reminisce about, and so much has transpired in the years since we last saw each other. No doubt it would be a happy meet up!Delete
