Giving Thanks for the Physical

thankfulOne of my dearest friends from college does something that I’ve always admired (but never managed to emulate) in November. In honor of Thanksgiving, she does a post on Facebook every single day of the month and lists something she’s grateful for. She doesn’t go into detail, and it’s not always something earth-shattering, but for thirty days, she tells the world what she is thankful for that day.

I always enjoy those posts.

In that spirit, I thought I’d take the next four weeks and try to do something along the same lines. Being that she has thirty days and I only have four, I figured I’d better break mine down into categories. So I decided the best way to handle it was to do the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual things in my life that I’m grateful for.

**DISCLAIMER** Things covered this month are in no particular order. That said, I’ll begin week one with the physical things.

  • My life
  • My family
  • My dogs
  • My friends
  • My house and the things that make it a home
  • My cars that get me to the places I need and want to go
  • The food that feeds us
  • The plants that give us air to breathe
  • The military, police, and firefighters who protects us

I know there are so many more physical things that I’m thankful for but they aren’t springing to mind because I’m trying to think of them. Why don’t you help add to the list?

      Now I’m inspired to follow that hashtag. Because I’m not already social media manic enough. Can’t wait to see what you post.

        Now I’m trying to not only follow the Twitter #ThankfulNovember postings, but actually make them. Thanks, Janna.
