Thirty Days of Thankfulness

I've mentioned before that my youngest child is a whiner. I'm just about at the end of my rope with her. Yesterday, I was ready to make a noose and hang myself with said rope. Instead, I've decided to focus on the positive and try to help Hallie do the same. For the next thirty days, I am going to post at least one thing for which I'm thankful each day. The girls will also participate by writing down their daily blessing/s. Hopefully, this will help us all to be more aware of the things and people we so often take for granted.
To kick off my Thirty Days of Thankfulness campaign, I will begin with my friend Kristi, because today is her birthday. She has been my best friend since the seventh grade. This picture is from our college days...only a *few short* years ago. We've shared secrets, tears, laughs and even a couple of boyfriends and still managed to stay close. Our friendship has survived living across the country from each other as well as living in the same town. She laughs at my jokes and gives me encouragement when I need it most. She's been through hard times and happy times with me. We can go weeks or even months without talking to each other, yet pick up right where we left off the instant we're together. For this and so much more, I am very thankful.

What a wonderful idea. I hope you will find that you have many more things to be thankful for than you could ever list in 30 days. :D
