Attitude of Gratitude... 30 Days of Thanksgiving! Day 21




DAY 21

I have to say, there is something magical about Christmas Lights! I love the tradition we started a couple of years ago of piling in Lindsay's van in our jammies with hot cocoa and driving around Sioux Falls looking at Christmas lights; ooooing and ahhing at the colors, the intricacy, the simplicity, the wonder of the bright lights and lighted yard art! Christmas music is usually playing or Christmas songs are being sung. Fun times, for sure! It is especially magical when there is snow, as the lights are so much brighter and more twinkly with the white backdrop.


Is there a tradition surrounding the holidays that is your favorite? If not, get creative and think of something you can start this year. What better year than 2020 to make a positive and lasting memory for years to come?


Today, I am grateful for:

  1. Popcorn - I'm sure I've listed this one before but it does deserve repeating

  2. Christmas lights on houses and businesses - so many up already - makes me smile

  3. A super kind store employee today made smile

  4. Finding a friend's lost iPhone bluetooth ear bud in Aldi's parking lot... It was crushed, but at least it has been confirmed that she did indeed lose it in Aldi's parking lot yesterday

  5. My friend having a day that was better than expected

  6. God's sovereignty - Seems like I am just really beginning to understand what this entails

  7. Being able to work today.

  8. More work on Monday - It's been a little scarce due to covid

  9. My sisters in law - I don't get to see them often, but glad my brothers have great wives

  10. My sons in law: Matt and Lane - They are the sons I never had and are good husbands to my daughters and fathers to my grands

  11. Handcrafted wood bowls

  12. Coasters

  13. Chai Tea bags - bears repeating

  14. Favorite coffee/tea mugs

  15. Sleep apps - I like knowing if I snored and how long

  16. Potted Rosemary trees - The fragrance is so yum

  17. Cuckoo clocks and clocks that chime

  18. A really good rubber / silicone spatula

  19. Waterless cookware - I don't own any, but I it's on my "Someday List"

  20. My home - it is just what I need

  21. A roaring fire in a fireplace
