My A-Zs of Thanksgiving (Part One: A-M)

Hi Friends! I don't know about you but it is so crazy to think it is already that time of the year: Thanksgiving and then Advent and Christmas. A couple of years ago I did this A-Z list of Thanksgiving and it got rather long. Today I saw a friend was splitting hers up into two posts and I thought what a great idea. I know we are all busy this week so thought I would keep it simple and do something a little fun. Enjoy my friends!

(A) My younger sister whose name starts with the letter A. She is one of my best friends in the world. Love her to pieces.

(B) BLC--The place where my momma lives. They truly take wonderful care of her.

(C) Camp of the Cross (or as it is sometimes affectionately called on this blog SuperAwesomeBibleCamp). It is the Bible camp that I worked at for several summers and is also the place where I heard God calling me into ministry.

(D) Dilworth Lutheran Church. It is the place that made me into the woman leader that I am today. So thankful for that place and the dear people there.

(E) Every Day Holy which is my friend Sarah's blog and other awesome blogs that I get to read each and every day.

(F) First Lutheran Church. This place is indeed blessing my life. Thankful and blessed to serve here. Also Friends. I have been incredibly blessed with the most awesome amazing friendships. So thankful and blessed to have each and every one of them in my life.

(G) Grandparents. I love them so much and miss Gma and Gpa H as they are both in heaven. Looking forward to spending time with Gma and Gpa U this week. They all have taught me so much.

(H) HUSKERS! Yep I am a huge BIG RED fan! And of course I am thankful for my very cute little house.

(I) InCourage. I am so thankful my friend Sarah introduced me to this website and its groups etc. Part of my morning routine is to read the InCourage blogs. So many times their words touch my heart!

(J) Japanese Treats and Japan. Where my friend Heather and her hubby currently are living. I love when she sends me treats from Japan. And I love reading about their adventures there!

(K) A sweet little girl at church whose name starts with the letter K. She runs down the aisle every Sunday during the Meet and Greet time to give me a hug. I am thankful for her and all the kids I get to work with at church. I also love spending time with my friend CT's girls. So blessed to have them all in my life.

(L) Link-Ups. I didn't realize there were so many awesome link-ups out there until I participated in the write31days challenge.

(M) My Momma. And my friend MW.

So that's my A-M list. Be back tomorrow with my N-Z list!

  4. I love not only counting my blessings, but seeing others count theirs. Nothing breed happiness, contentment, and joy like counting and sharing our blessings. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  7. You know, I struggled with trying to come up with a Thanksgiving sort of post. I think I might borrow this idea and modify it a bit for Advent. Great post, my friend!

    1. I got this idea from another 31 dayer. I think a lot of us followed suit and used this idea. You totally could borrow this idea and modify it for Advent.
