30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day Thirteen, Casual Fridays, and the Other Little Things in Life

I have to say that I have enjoyed checking out everyone's blog entries about what you're thankful for. And the Facebook updates that I get, too. I am thankful that there are so many other people that are willing to concentrate on Thanksgiving this month instead of decorating & shopping for the next holiday. I love this cartoon my sil sent me.

Gotta go get ready for work but I want to show y'all some of the other blogs that are participating in the 30 Days of Thanksgiving. Check them out here. Make sure you add your link & visit all the others listed.
I'm back from work now. I didn't get to finish my thought this morning. I didn't realize how late it was when I started & I needed to get ready for work.

Today I was thankful for blue jeans! It's casual Friday at work. Before children I worked in an office where I had to dress up all the time. No casual Fridays. No open toe shoes. No bare legs (had to wear hose - yuk). I dreamed of being able to wear jeans all the time. Then I was a SAHM for 13 years and really did get to wear jeans every day. It was great. Now I'm back to work with dress codes again but we do have casual Fridays!

I've been thanking God for other little things this week. And like reading the other blog's posts about the little things that we all usually overlook. Mimi is thankful for rubber bands, baby powder, straws, and lots of other little things.

Oh, and my sister posted a picture of the Thanksgiving banner that her son made from my kit last year. Don't forget to leave a comment here to enter a drawing for a free kit. I'll draw names Sunday evening. Jenn's thankful for her digital camera. (Me, too!!!) BTW, Jenn is Glenn's aunt for those of you wondering... Paula's thankful for Tylenol Cold & Sinus and Kleenex. Hope you are feeling better, Paula! Senkyoushi has been thankful for Costco, her Macbook, & hot soup. Lynette was thankful for trees.

More later... someone else needs the computer now. :-)

I do also love reading all of the things bloggers are grateful for. The FB email says it's hard to do, but I believe in being grateful every day and its not hard at all!

If you have a chance, check out my blog yesterday about gratitude, my 2010 gratitude journal and downloadable artwork.

I appreciate the emphasis you've put on giving thanks. We need to be thankful for the little thing!
