Day 31

I wish I had something profound and momentous to write about today.  The climactic ending.

I don't.

Writing a post every single day for 31 days wasn't easy.  (I'm a little grateful to be done.)

I'm also grateful for the opportunity.  I'm glad I did it.  Before October began, I wrote a list of possible ideas that I could write about (two of my favorite things:  lists + planning ahead).  I tried to pick things that were universal, things other people could relate to.  (I could have written every day about being grateful for Adam--but what good would that do anyone else?)

As October progressed, I had a longer and longer list of post ideas.  So maybe here's the lesson, maybe we could think all day about ways we're grateful and still not cover everything.  Considering everything wonderful in life (despite everything awful in life) leaves me feeling loved and supported and taken care of by Heavenly Father because who else could be responsible for all of this goodness I enjoy every day?

Part of gratitude is knowing who to thank.

On an unrelated note, Happy Nevada Day.

It happens to be the same day as Halloween but there's nothing to like about Halloween (except pilfering candy from my children).  So Happy Nevada Day.

there is the land that I love the best...fairer than all I can see
the land of the setting sun

I am grateful that I found your blog. It's been one of my favorites to follow this past month. The 31 days thing was definitely challenging for me too, but I'm glad that I did it. I think I learned a lot and I met some new people too. I hope you don't mind if I still pop in on your blog sometimes even though the 31 days is over. :)

I love your quote, "part of gratitude is knowing who to thank." (I may borrow it sometime.) I'm actually doing 30 Days of Gratitude for the month of November on my blog, Charming. Great idea.

Happy Nevada Day to you too.
