Welcome to a brand new year of 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. Did you make any resolutions or choose a focus word for the new year?
While i quit making resolutions years ago, i hadn’t thought of replacing them with a word until just a couple of days ago. My word is going to be “Believe.”ReplyDelete
Making one word our mantra or focus for a year has so many potential benefits, and "Believe" is a good one, it's positive and uplifting! <3Delete
Happy New Year to all! I did pick a guiding word- minimize. I want to minimize my possessions and my weight :)ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Ellen! I need to adopt that one too, in both ways! Not easy tasks, but think how wonderful we'd feel at the end of the year if we made some progress! :-)Delete
I have made a list of areas to focus on such as continuing my daily encounter with my Lord, writing my blog at least once a week, reading a book a month, long walk twice a week and a few more...ReplyDelete
My word for 2018 is LOVE...
I really like the things you plan to focus on, every one has positive benefits and is also doable! Love is my favorite word, it is the most powerful force in the Universe because it begins with our Creator!Delete
Yes, I have set some goals and am trying to keep them within reach and not give up because I miss a day.ReplyDelete
I haven't chosen a focus word. It is difficult for me to limit myself to one word.
I think whether we focus on goals or a specific word, it is the act of intention that starts the wheels in motion. Then, with lots of prayer power, we can accomplish great things in our lives, changes that will serve us and serve others!Delete
