TToT - 12/29/17

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 an uplifting experience!

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.  Looking back at this year, what is one of the most important things that took place in your life?


  1. This year, in the last few months actually, i reached a new level of understanding with my daughter-in-law. For some reason, she seemed to think i didn't like her much, and that has been cleared up. She now knows she is loved.

  2. This has been a year of ups and downs. Losing 2 beloved cats was heartbreaking. Getting published in Black Cats Tell All was a highlight. Wishing a happy and healthy 2018 to all!

  3. My niece was born a few weeks after my own birthday, back in February, and we share a middle name.

    So many writing achievements and other personal goals, but she is the best thing, by far.

  4. I feel I have achieved some important things this year, especially finishing my thesis which was very stressful at points. However, the most important for me has come during the past couple of weeks where I have decided to make time to work on my 'self'. Now that my studies are pretty much at an end, I got in touch with a counsellor and will begin seeing her properly in the new year. I feel I have lot of things to work through and have put them off for long enough. Now is the right time :)

  5. The most important things would be the relationships my children are now in, how wonderful, amazing and supportive my husband has been, how much closer I am with my sisters, and above all, that I have once again survived to see another year begin, and I look forward to it!

  6. The birth of another grandchild, and moving to Utah were two significant events in 2017.

  7. Going to Hawaii with my husband to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. We had never been there and we especially needed that break.


We're so glad you're here! Please say hi and share your thoughts with us!
