Thanksgiving Thursday

"Keep a grateful journal. every night, list five things that you are grateful for. What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and your life." ~Oprah Winfrey When I began my blog, not too long ago, I knew I wanted to do a Thanksgiving Thursday. I had started with this quote from Oprah Winfrey, which I am using again for all of my new readers. It is something very simple to do and even if you do it just one day a week, you will see that your conscientious thoughts about all the blessings in life stay embedded long enough to help ease all the "other stuff" that may be bothering us. There are so many things to be grateful for.
Now I am very happy to share my Thanksgiving Thursday button with anyone that wants to join along. I had lots of people ask if they could link to Mama's Little Chick for this day of blessings! Just grab it and my link (cut, paste, add link)! Let me know so I can visit you and add your blog below!
I am thankful for:
1.) Little Chick and my family.
2.) my husband having a job. My poor brother-in-law was out of work for quite some time. Very stressful!
3.) being able to buy the extras. (toys, Starbucks coffee, gymnastics classes for Little Chick, beach and lake passes, etc.)
4.) for having been able to travel and see many wonderful countries in my youth. For having parents that taught me to respect the multicultural differences of others.
5.) for my computer.

Have a great Thanksgiving Thursday!
