Thirty Days of Thankful - Day 30

I haven't run out of things to be thankful for. I really haven't! But I can't remember what all I've expressed gratitude for already this month so I'm not sure what's left to mention! So here's a recap to help me, and give you a chance to read any you may have missed. (All of the days are clickable and link to the entry for that day.)

Day 1 - Willy
Day 2 - Ben
Day 3 - Brady
Day 4 - Toby
Day 5 - Molly
Day 6 - Ohana (in all it's forms)
Day 7 - My stupid smart phone
Day 8 - Hawaii
Day 9 - Craigslist (and my $40 recliner and matching reclining loveseat)
Day 10 - Payday
Day 11 - Ability to make good choices (specifically health and fitness related)
Day 12 - The fact that my good choices are paying off
Day 13 - Humor (which coincidentally benefited me the following day...)
Day 14 - Cleaning supplies, cleaning wipes and Marjorie Pay Hinckley
Day 15 - Books

Day 24 - Tradition
Day 25 - God's hand in my life
Day 26 - Reconnecting with my hubby
Day 27 - Leftovers
Day 28 - A merciful scale after the holidays and vacation
Day 29 - Friends

And that brings me to Day 30. What could I possibly end this list with?

My Savior, Jesus Christ? How did I not include Him on my list?

My faith and my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints?

My talents?

How about the sound and smell of rain, followed by rainbows that take my breath away?

Or even cool sheets, freshly swept floors or good quality wrapping paper. Pens that write smoothly, my camera, or good fitting running shoes. TV shows that make me laugh, my Sonicare toothbrush or movie theater popcorn.

I guess for my last day I'll just say that I'm thankful to recognize that there are more blessings in my life than I could every quantify. Everything I have is a blessing. From the obvious to the random. Even the really sucktacular times in my life bless me with learning and experience. I'm grateful for all that I have, all that I know and all that I am. I'm so very thankful!

  1. I always enjoy reading thankful lists. The simple and random things are normally what make me smile the most.
