Thirty Days of Thanksgiving- 2 Days in One!

October has gone by so quickly, so quickly in fact that I did not get my first post in for the month of November!
Since I wanted to do a series on Thirty Days of Thanksgiving, today will be a two in one day. Just a little catch up here.
Life often gets so busy, that I myself forget that I need to practice an attitude of Thanksgiving and gratitude every day.I do not want to get so caught up in the worries and cares of each day, that I forget to be thankful for all that God has blessed me with, and it is much. I will spend the next 28 days sharing some of these things with you.

Today, I am thankful for the opportunity to vote.
My sweet boy came home last night just to vote. I am thankful that he sees this as a privilege and responsibility. So we will be off to vote in just a few minutes.

Second, I am thankful that I will be able to pick up my car today.
I know to some that may sound ridiculous, but I have been reminded over the last week, how I take for granted just being able to hop in the car, and take care of whatever I need to. We have been having some maintenance issues taken care of(you'll have those on old vehicles), so I have had to make other arrangements for transportation, errands, etc.

What about you? What keeps you focused on being thankful for your daily blessings?

How about you, what helps keep you focused on being thankful for your daily blessings?

There are several things, but one of the first things that came to mind was the many years of great teaching that we have received. I've shared a couple of things about that at my place. Those scriptures and catch phrases deep in my heart that God brings to mind when I begin to get negative, discouraged or ungrateful. He uses those to get my attention and to correct my focus. We have been truly blessed!
