november gratitude {part one}

sweet ginny at sweet myrtle has once again invited her readers to participate with her in a theme for the month. it's a popular one, too! gratitude is the word for november's one word project on shutter sisters.

october was "things i am noticing..." month. this time, ginny and i {and anyone who wants to join her} are doing "things i am thankful for... november 2009". so i made a little button for my sidebar, and i included a button link to her thankful posts, too.

wow... the list for this could be endless. though i try to be thankful all year-round, i thought now would be a good time {with thanksgiving around the corner} to say what those things are out loud {or write them out loud}.

so i hope you enjoy reading and seeing the many things i am grateful for. and i hope you will also take time to reflect on all the things you have to give thanks for.

oh, i almost forgot to give my first gratitude list. today...
  • i'm thankful that my husband and i have jobs, when just a short time ago we did not.
  • i'm thankful that one of my best friends had a strong baby boy, despite the fact that she had to deliver him almost four months early, and that he is fighting like a champ in neonatal care. {he and his parents are still in need of your prayers.}
  • lastly, i am thankful to live in a place where i am free to blog and write and express my thoughts and beliefs.
what are you thankful for today?

I'm so thankful for my healthy little man and uber supportive hubs. Your friend's little munchkin will be in my prayers!! I'm sorry I lost you. Our blog roll got deleted a bit back. : (
