A Basket of Thankfulness

It’s November! That means, for many of us, that Thanksgiving is coming up! It is always a good thing to think on all of the wonderful blessings God has given us, and Thanksgiving is a great reminder to do that!

Sooo, I’ve thought up an activity for us to do this November, and here’s how it works:

  • Comment below with things you are thankful for! It can be one thing, or it can be twenty things! As many as you want! But, please, be sincere. Try to put some thought into it!
  • Then, on November 24 (Thanksgiving Day) I can post everything that we’ve said in a great big list of thankfulness, along with those who contributed!
  • The goal: To encourage and remind us to be thankful this season, and to remind us of God’s goodness and blessings. With a little thought, you can realize So, So Many things to be thankful for! Even simple things, like breakfast and t-shirts. Or thrift stores and charities. How ’bout plates and cups?


I’ll kick off the list with a few things I’m thankful for:

  1. Jesus!
  2. Blogging
  3. Work
  4. Rest
  5. Kindness

And now it’s your turn! What do you say we completely overflow this “Basket of Thankfulness”!


Before I sign off,  I wanted to mention that I’d LOVE if you’d spread the word about this, so we can get as many contributors as we can! Or you can even host a “basket of thankfulness” on your own blog!

  2. Wow! This could take a while!
    Dolls- I’m so thankful to have four of them!
    Cameras- I can use my talent for God’s glory!
    Provision- God provides WAAAY more than we need!
    A warm, clean home
    Food every day- many kids go to sleep hungry across the world
    Family- what would I do without mine?
    Friends- both ones that I get to see frequently, those across the nation, and those in the blogging community!
    That should add a few!

  3. I am so thankful that God has saved me and blessed me in so many ways. I am thankful for my family, my friends, being able to live in a free country, my dog, being able to go to school every day, the roof I live under, the food I way everyday, the list could just go on and on. This is such a great idea!

          •Being able to live in a free country
          •My health
          •My family and friends (in real life and online)
          •My many blessings (including but not limited to dolls, talents, my blog 😉 )
