November.....a month of Thank You's

Dear Life,

Thank you for books.  There are great books out there.  I love all kinds, fiction, non-fiction, historical fiction, scriptures, etc etc.  Recently I read "Not My Type" by a very cool author friend...Melanie Jacobson.  (She is hilarious....check out her two will read them in no time flat...and LAUGH THE WHOLE TIME!)

 The main character Pepper is having some serious issues....and being a whole lotta negative.  She is an adult, but lives with her parents (you'll have to read the book to find out why).  Her father, who happens to be a family counselor, tell her that she will either be writing a thank you letter a week for a YEAR or she will have to move out on her own.  I loved that as she wrote her letters, things changed for her...mostly within herself!  So I am challenging myself to write a thank you card a day for the month of November.  One reason is that I am HORRIBLE at writing thank you cards so it might be the beginning of a good habit.  Another is that I need to be more thankful....and climb out of the pity party ride I find myself on occasionally. I also want to teach my kids a good lesson about being thankful and not taking things for granted and stop feeling entitled.  So in this last week of October I will be getting together some cards and then prepare all we will have to do is write them.  :)  Good luck right? Want to join me?

Yes...I wrote that I was going to do purposeful acts of kindness...but I want to do THAT in December.....Thanks First!

I hope you all have a great week.  Share my blog will you?  And I love followers....not the creepy kind of course.

Thanks life for books...and great ideas...even if they aren't mine!

From...A Mom of Boys!
