I'm just a wife and mother who earnestly desires to grow in my faith and it's demonstration. DISCLAIMER! I have absolutely no problem with women in the clergy. As a matter of fact, I have several female pastors who I consider friends. In my home, the pastor is a male so the pronouns I use to refer to a pastor tend to be male. This is not a statement of any kind. Just a reflection of my every day life!

Thankfulness Challenge

During the month of November, many people choose to participate in a “Thankfulness Challenge”.  During said challenge, they post one thing each day that they are thankful for.  Some people – like yours truly – make it tougher on themselves by “grouping” their family members – siblings, kids, parent, in-laws, etc.  – instead of acknowledging each person individually.  I mean, if I just did my kids hubby, parents, and siblings, I would kill more than a week to say nothing of nieces, nephews . . . you get the idea!

So I once again am entering this challenge myself.  What about you?  Can you come up with one month of things to be thankful for?!  I’m considering something really crazy.  I mean REALLY, REALLY crazy.  I may even try to stretch my “Thankfulness Challenge” for longer than the month of  November.  I’m thinking about stretching it through Christmas or New Year’s.  I might even stretch it a whole year.

I’m ashamed to admit that scares me a little.  Why am I ashamed?  It’s simple – I should NOT find it daunting to spend a moment each day being grateful for . . . something!  Maybe this will have a drastic impact on my attitude and the way I view the world.  We’ll see how far I choose to stretch and just how it impacts me!
