Thanksgiving Challenge - Day 9

Some days you just have to be thankful that you held it together. And that's where I sit right now. Because, let me tell you, holding it together is not my strong suit. Especially when I'm feeling frustrated or disappointed combined with weary and weak.

So today I am thankful that, despite everything in me that wanted to scream at one of my classes today, I held it together.


Now, please redeem my feeble attempts at thankfulness and tell me what YOU'RE thankful for today.



  1. I'm scraping the barrel on this one too. *bleh* But here goes anyways:

    I'm grateful I didn't scream when the person I'm training on my job told me to keep an open mind. All I did was tell her in a mild tone that was likely something she should have said in her inside voice.

    I'm grateful for a fluffy new mattress.

    And I'm grateful for a husband who homeschools the kids, does the laundry, works at his job round the clock, and makes dinner on top of it all. I am blessed.

  2. I'm thankful for friends who swap baby-sitting nights with us so we can go on date nights. Our kids love the other family and look forward to these nights as much as we do!

  3. I'm thankful for
    REAL, tell-it-like-
    it-is blogging friends!

    Oh, and lunch with
    my book club buddies
    today.....always fun.

    And a day at home to
    putz and get some
    chores done!

    Thanks for reminding
    me to to give thanks : )

    Hope today is better!
