Although most of me is sad to be taking down my Halloween decorations, I am so happy to be heading towards Thanksgiving. November is typically a month where we focus on gratitude and giving thanks for our many blessings. I thought it might be fun this year to make a "Chain of Gratitude". Starting with today, I am going to make three "thankful strips" each day. The strips will join together and by Thanksgiving I will have a nice long chain. I am also going to let friends and family who stop by add onto the chain. Life is so wonderful and I think this little chain will be a fun way to focus on my many blessings each day.
