30 Days of Thankful: Share-a-Page-Fridays

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 herehere 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?

  1. Really enjoyed your gratitude posts. Definitely want to try this idea next year. I often overlook the good things in our lives so it would be good to take time to be grateful.

  2. Aw, I made the book! :o) How very grateful I am to have found such a sweet friend in such an unlikely way! Who would have ever thought that we would share such a history merely through our blogs?!?! I love the way this universe works!

    Your gratitude journal is so lovely, Ruth. And I am ALWAYS impressed with your dedication to projects such as this. Well done, my friend! Well done.

  3. Some of your entries remind me of mine and I had the exact same thought, our life is by no means glamorous or exotic – but it is our life and it is a good one!
