Day 30:  I'm thankful for this journey.

30 Days ago, I decided to throw caution to the wind and jump on the 30 Days of Thanks bandwagon. I'm not really a bandwagon kind of gal... I usually avoid them like the plague. But this time, I decided I was up for the challenge.

What a 30 days it has been! From my kids, to my parents, to friends, to the internet, each day I looked inside to see what I felt thankful for that day. Of course, I am always thankful for the things that mean the most... family and friends. 

This has been good for me. So many times, I get burdened down with the cares of life, and I forget. I forget to be thankful for the things that really matter. So today, Day 30, I'm thankful for this challenge... this journey, because it has made me THINK.

Also, I just happened to look at the stats page of this blog (I didn't even know it had a stats page!) and I have had over 3000 views on my blog in the last 2 months. What?! That is just crazy. I love every one of you that have "checked me out". 

And finally, today, I am once again thankful for my kids. They helped me put up Christmas lights and decorations outside. Trust me, I really am thankful for their help. That is too big of a job to do alone, and last year it just did not get done. Those things make me happy when I pull in the drive at night. Here is a little preview of outside... obviously, since it is daytime, there aren't any pics of the house lights, but I promise, Wade put them up and I appreciate it a bunch.

And Santa himself... in his little hidey hole 

Even Sophie got into the action... in the tree on the porch!

So, at the end of my 30 days, I want to say THANKS, to each and every one of you too! Now let's get this holiday season rolling!
