As you may or may not be aware, there has been this challenge going around facebook called the Gratitude Challenge. I have watched different friends get tagged and share what they are thankful for and it is quite neat. Someone I know thinks social media isn’t good but I have to say that sometimes it is very good. Seeing something positive like this spread through so many people so quickly is quite neat. It makes it so enjoyable to read through facebook posts. Yesterday I finally got tagged so I am excited to take this challenge. As some of you may know, I recently spent a whole year sharing 1 new blessing each day I was thankful for. I accomplished it and found 365 different blessings to share. It definitely got tough near the end but it is very good to be aware of the good in our lives and it really changed my perspective on what I focus on. I have thought lately that I need to do something like that again and this challenge may be a good way to get into it again. I am posting below what I want to share on facebook as part of the challenge. I can’t currently because facebook isn’t working for some odd reason. I can’t get in to it. I had written this out but it apparently didn’t post. I left out the names in case my facebook friends would rather not have their name posted on here. I hope to share my facebook posts on here as well for the next 5 days. After the 5 days are up, I will consider where to go from there. I might do a weekly thing or something.
I accept the gratitude challenge from —- to post three things each day for the next five days that I’m thankful for and will challenge two other people each of the five days.
1. not sleeping through the massive light show last night. 🙂 I love thunderstorms and it was quite exciting. Also that there is no hail damage to our fruit trees. 🙂
2. One of our lilies finally opened this morning that I have been waiting for. It is so beautiful that the long wait is completely worth it. 🙂 I hope to post pictures later.
3. My cats. They each give me cuddles each morning and Ben will wait for me by the back door for me each morning for his cuddles.
I challenge —– and —– to join me in this 5 day challenge.
There you have it. My first day of the challenge. 🙂 Now I need to get it posted on facebook. lol
