30 Days of Thanks- Day 30: Focusing

 "Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. 
For love is the beauty of the soul."
~Saint Augustine

Well my friends, it's Day 30 of my 30 Days of Thanks, and today I am thankful for several things:

I am thankful to all of you, my bloggy friends, for taking the time over these last thirty days to read my posts. Even though I won't be posting every day, as I have over the last month, I will be posting on what I hope is a regular basis. I'm kinda playing around with some ideas for my blog for the month of December. We'll see how all that works out.

I am thankful that I got to spend the day with a very dear friend of mine, who I don't get to see nearly enough. We even got to watch my all time favorite movie, Pride and Prejudice. This was the first time she had seen it, so it was fun getting to watch it with her. 

I am thankful for the delicious soup that my daughter, Brittany, had ready for me when I got home tonight. Taylor and I were gone for about nine hours today, including driving time, so by the time I got home, I was wiped out. That soup was so yummy and it really hit the spot.

I am also thankful that this month has been a great way to reflect on all the things I am thankful for.  It's way too easy to fall into the trap of seeing all the things that are wrong in our lives. It takes a little more effort to focus on the things that are good in the midst of all the craziness.

Have a great weekend my friends. Don't forget to take the time to stop and smell the roses, and look at all the blessings in your life. Until next time, be blessed!
