Extra Thankful List

Thankful isn’t one day a year. I wish people {including myself} would realize this more often. I would like to remember this all the time, and I hope you will too. 


I like lists. So here’s my plan, I am going to make a small lists of things I am thankful for. I don’t want to make a list of things that I am thankful for in general, but things that I am extra thankful for at this moment. These are things that I am thankful for all the time, but right now, they stand out to me more than before. 


//Things I am thankful for right now//


1. for my Savior who wakes me up and blesses me every day.

2. for a house to live in, and a home, which is just wherever my family is.

3. for Christmas socks.

4. for everything else Christmas-y.

5. for my Frame family full of my friends who have never left my side. 

6. for the show “Duck Dynasty”.

7. for my cousin, and the fact that she and I are best friends despite our age difference. 

8. for new friends who treat me like they have known me forever.

9. for my gigantic family, because no matter what the relationship, aunt, uncle, cousin, 3rd cousin, we are all close.

10. for the chance I have to share this with all of you.


Please tell me a small list of things you are thankful for. Make this a different list; however, a list that is things you are especially thankful for right now. Things that you are thankful for now, more than you normally are.
