Wow! What a party we had last week! In fact, if you are reading this on Friday or Saturday (June 14-15), the celebration is still going on! We extended the link up to allow everyone who wanted to to join the 6th anniversary party of the Ten Things of Thankful. If you thought you missed your chance, there is still time to link up! Thanks to everyone for making this such a great event!

If you are here for this week's link-up, though, you are in the right place. Let us know what you are thankful for this week!

Now We Are Six!

Photo: A bunch of colorful balloons against a glittery background. Three balloons spell out "Ten Things of Thankful," while the others have "TTOT" on them.
In June of 2013, Lizzi Lewis began a blog hop she called the Ten Things of Thankful. The idea was simple, yet powerful: list 10 things that you are thankful for each week. She invited others to join her in co-hosting the blog hop, and thus was born a strong worldwide community whose uniting factor was thankfulness. Lizzi encouraged us to look for the silver linings when life was dark and stormy, and showed us by example how to do just that.

Years passed, and Lizzi turned the hosting over to Josie Two Shoes, who was the perfect person to continue the TToT tradition. Both Lizzi and Josie wrote detailed, thorough comments, and made all participants feel welcome. When Josie decided to step down from hosting, I volunteered to take her place, because I believe in the power of thankfulness, and I wanted to make sure the Ten Things of Thankful remained open. 

Now, here we are in June 2019, and the TToT is 6 years old. A.A. Milne knows that six is a wonderful age, and I anticipate great things ahead for the TToT. Whether you are a long-time participant, or are joining us for the first time today, welcome, and thank you! Please make sure to read the linked posts, and comment. Commenting on comments is also allowed. A special shout-out to Kristi of Finding Ninee who was one of the early co-hosts, and who hosts the blog hop Finish the Sentence Friday. Today we are joining forces and the FTSF prompt is Ten Things of Thankful. Welcome to the FTSF folks who are joining us today!

Without further ado, let's get this party started! Ready, set, GO!

Ten Things of Thankful: One Week Until 6 Years!

The excitement is growing; the 6th anniversary celebration of the Ten Things of Thankful begins in just one week! Actually, it will begin in slightly less than one week. For next week only, the link will open on Thursday night at 8 p.m. Mountain time, the same time that the Finish the Sentence Friday blog hop goes live with their link. Kristi of Finding Ninee contacted me earlier this week to ask if the TToT and FTSF could team up for the anniversary celebration, and of course I was delighted to say yes. Everyone is invited!

Fun fact: in the early days of the TToT, both Kristi and I were co-hosts. Because we had the same name, to keep things straight, I was known as K2. I can't remember who came up with the moniker, but it is indicative of the welcoming nature of the TToT community--a small blogger is made to feel like a mighty mountain of a writer.😊

Be sure to join us next week for the big celebration, and help spread the word! THANK YOU!!!!!

(And in the meantime, tell us what you are thankful for this week.)
