How can this weeks challenge NOT be about Thankfulness. It is, after all, Thanksgiving week. Here’s a little twist for you though. This week challenge yourself to write out what you are thankful, but do it ALPHABETICALLY! That’s right, start at A and go to Z. Once you finish, start again. As you have probably heard me say a thousand times, (well if you know me, that is). It’s easy to be thankful for the BIG things, the “family, friends, health, job, church...” but to get to the little things that you are thankful for??? That is where the JOY starts to pile up. We need to get to the everyday, boring, not so common things we are thankful for. Because sometimes in life, you feel like the BIG ones are not there. You might be lonely or jobless, or questioning your faith… at those times, it’s absolutely imperative to search for the little things you are grateful for. IT will save YOU! Remember, the more we look for things, the more we find! So good luck this week finding things you are thankful for that begin with the letter J, or Q, or Z… Post on our facebook page, some of the unusual things you find yourself thankful for. May I close with
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” William Arthur Ward
