30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 30: Blessings

Today, I am thankful for the many, many blessings that God grants me – there are too many to name in one month of giving thanks, and they last the entire year.


30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 28: Thanksgiving

Today, I am thankful for Thanksgiving.

That sounds a little silly, I do realize. However, the holiday provides us with the opportunity to see many members of our families who we don’t see on a regular basis – despite the fact that almost all of us live relatively close to one another.

Oh, and the abundance of good food at those family gatherings doesn’t hurt.

30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 27: The Hookup on Sweet Paper Goods

Today, I am thankful for having the hookup on sweet invitations, postcards, etc. What that really means is that I’m thankful that my brother and his wife are willing to share their talents and make cool things for me. We end up with super awesome, custom designed birthday party invitations and other random things all the time. It’s awesome!

Do you need some paper goods? You really should check out their website, Sparkvites.

30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 21: Piano Lessons

Today, I am thankful for the many years of piano lessons that my parents paid for and drove me to.

Though I don’t currently have a piano or regularly practice playing, I am thankful for the musical background that it gave me. One day, I’d like to own a piano and give my children the same opportunity.

I fondly remember all those hours sitting beside Joanne LaRue, who so very patiently taught so many of us about the piano — even when it was quite obvious that I had practicing at the bottom of my list that week.
