Be Thankful Always

Hello November! I can't believe this, but I am happy to see you. (Not because you are the month of my birth, not because you bring us really yummy food, and not because I get to decorate the house with lots of orange (my fav!)) No, I am happy it is November because this is the month that I get to stop and think about all the blessings in my life.

I came across this blog, which is inspiring people everywhere to stop and notice the blessings in their lives.

I used to keep a daily gratitude journal, jotting down one thing each day that I was grateful for. I did this for 3 straight years.

I have missed it. So in honor of the month of 'thanks', I am going to do a portion of the 365 Grateful Project by taking a photo of one thing that I am grateful for each day and posting about it. I hope you don't mind.

Today, day number one, I am grateful for this little lady. She caught a mouse in our house. An icky, disgusting, quick, tiny brown mouse. Ewwww.

I don't love having a pet. But today, I am ever so grateful that I have a cat.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I love this idea! I recently started a gratitude journal, this post has inspired me to be more consistent with it.

  2. Perfect timing for such a great post! Can't wait to see what's to come.

    I'm so happy your kitty took care of your mouse!
