Thankfulness Project Day 1 ~ Hands

Thanksgiving.  We know what it means, right?  Turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie, family, and football.  And a long nap after we stuff ourselves beyond what is comfortable.

But do we always take the time to take a look at our lives and truly appreciate everything that we have been blessed with?  Probably not so much.

I admit that I always seem to get caught up in the typical distractions of the season and don't reflect on the true meaning of this holiday, which by the way is my favorite of all holidays.

This year I'm inspired by some ladies who I met at the Southern Bloggers Conference last month that are naming something each day that they're thankful for.  And a few others who I haven't  met in person, but am glad to be participating with.

This project is the brainchild of Karen at  Dogs Don't Eat Pizza, who did this last year.

Some of the other ladies joining in on the gratefulness are:

On this 1st day of November, I'm thankful for my two working hands that allow me to do most anything I want to.  Today I used them to paint baseboards.  Now I'm using them to type.  I'm getting ready to go into the kitchen and use them to cook dinner.  

They're not the most beautiful hands on the planet, especially when the have paint splatters on them, but they do what I need them to, when I need them to do it!

Whenever I see someone with severe arthritis, I'm always thankful that my hands are working in a way that don't cause me pain.  

 So that's what I'm thankful for today.

How about you?  What are you thankful for today?
