November - The Thankful Month

http://southbreezefarm.blogspot.com/2009/10/2009-giving-thanks-challenge.html
Often these days, it seems like Thanksgiving is skipped right over in a sense. It’s as though as soon as the Halloween decorations come down, retail stores move on to promoting the next big holiday, Christmas. This year, I noticed more and more Christmas decorations and products on the shelves a way lot earlier than Halloween.

Thanksgiving is more than the big Thanksgiving feast, football games, the parades, and the Black Friday shopping ads. It’s a day to celebrate thankfulness. And rather than just be thankful on Thanksgiving, I’m going to list things throughout the month for what I’m thankful for. Watch for my growing list in my sidebar.

The idea came from Leah, over at South Breeze Farm. If you would care to join in on “The Thankful Month”, visit her blog for the creative link and be sure to add your name to the list, so others can stop by and see what you’re thankful for.

Yes, I'm always glad to see the Halloween stuff go, but sad to see Christmas immediately take over too.

Also, it seems to have been forgotten, but Thanksgiving was originally not just a day to be thankful but more specifically a day to thank God!

I think that all too often we forget that in our day-to-day lives we come upon things that need to be recognized as blessings.

Thanks, Darcy, for jumping in on the challenge with me! It's always such a fun thing to host - we have so much to be thankful for that sometimes we overlook it all. Have a great November!
