American blogger and scrapbooker Cathy Zielske began a month long project to record all the things she is thankful for on a daily basis. You can see the beginning of her album here. She designed her pages in 6×6 and made them available to purchase for a few pounds.
You can see my first batch of pages here, here and here.
Day 23: thankful for the technology that is the text message. It meant that I didn’t spent 20 minutes standing outside a church hall on a cold, dark and windy night. Day 24: thankful for the friendships that The Boy Child continues to make at school.
Day 25: thankful that The Boy Child enjoys his swimming lessons. Even if he hasn’t actually mastered the art of swimming yet. Day 26: thankful for the written word. Deb
, I’m talking about you.
Day 27: thankful that we don’t live in an area where flooding has occurred. Day 28: thankful that we are in a position to be able to help others. Times are hard for many and it’s good to be able to help in a small way.
Day 29: thankful for the opportunity and the ability to slope off for a picnic at the pictures. Day 30: thankful that we live in a London suburb where there is plenty of green space.
There you have it. A whole month of counting my blessings and recording them. My life isn’t one full of glamour and excitement. It’s ordinary and everyday, yet I still found something or someone to be thankful for each and every day.
And that in itself is something to be thankful for, wouldn’t you say?
