It's November 1st, and I've seen the challenges on FB and on another blog. Every day, post something you are grateful for. I did this last year. I can probably just dig up those posts and repost them. I almost didn't want to do this challenge this year. But...
I think it's good to try to commit to blogging every day. It takes 30 days to form a habit, or so they say, and I know my blog gets neglected from time to time. So, what better way to reconnect with my blog than to write something I'm thankful for daily.
So, here it goes...
Today, I woke up. Well, I'm grateful for that. But, I went on Facebook and a friend was asking if she should start a blog. Of course, I raved about blogging and the perks and how I love having all of my kids experiences written out. Our vacations are documented better than any video or photo book. We've made so many memories, and because I wrote about them, we won't forget.
I've had friends that have blogged and then stopped blogging. I've felt like stopping the blog from time to time. I originally thought David would write too since he enjoys writing, but he wrote one post in 5 years, when Forest (our dog) died.
I looked back at a few posts from the beginning in June of 2008. Five years I've been keeping up this blog. I have over 1,000 posts to my kids, and I realize what a gift it will be for them one day. I mean just look at this post from November of 2008. Love, love, love.
Today, I am grateful that I've never given up on my blog.
