4th Thankful Thursday: Remembering the Small and Simple

Too often we overlook the small and simple things that bring us joy or relief. Today, we're going to give a few of them the acknowledgment they deserve. :)

The task: Name three things you are thankful for that would fit in a square inch.

Honeybees, tomato seeds (well, all my favorite garden seeds are smaller than one inch), and the erasers on my pencils.

What are you thankful for? :)

3rd Thankful Thursday: 1st Express Gratitude

Hopefully, at some point in your life, you have been the recipient of a thank you card. Chances are you haven't thrown it away like your grocery receipts, but have kept it in a place where you can read it often. Why? Because reading sincere thank you notes is like drinking hot chocolate on a bitterly cold day, warming you to your core. I'm thankful thank you notes don't require refills. ;)
This week's challenge: write a sincere thank you note, card or letter, and mail it to the recipient. No electronic messages or Post-it notes allowed. We want to touch someone and let them know they are appreciated.
Best wishes!

2nd Thankful Thursday--5 Reasons

5 Reasons I'm Grateful for Snow:
1) provides us water to get through the coming year
2) keeps the orchard cold enough so that the trees don't flower too soon
3) it is absolutely gorgeous
4) snow forts in which to play Star Wars
5) snow flakes + tongue = giggles :)

Now it's your turn! What are five reasons you are grateful for something?

FIRST EVER Thankful Thursday Weekly Challenge :)

Paperclips, handwritten letters, puppy-dogs with great big brown eyes and soft fuzzy fur and brown eyes who love you unconditionally, the fact that "tests have an end", clean bed sheets, sincere complements, a warm coat, warm gloves, snow in the mountains, and post-it notes.

There. Ten things I'm thankful for, most of which are taken for granted. (Well, except for the pooch. She gets lots of love.)

THE CHALLENGE: What are you thankful for? Go ahead and write your big things, or take a moment to think about the less obvious.
