Week 47 – thankful
This week we’re focusing on “thankful”. I have a lot to be thankful for. I wanted to think beyond my immediate sphere of husband, kids, house, car – the things that are a part of my every day life. I am thankful for those things, and I’m sure I take a lot for granted most of the time.
Tomorrow I turn 40, and I have had a great first 40 years. I wouldn’t have had those 40 years if it wasn’t for the two people in the photo below – my parents. I am thankful for my parents. Without them, well, I wouldn’t be here. They played a bit part in shaping who I turned out to be. And thanks to them, I am aging very nicely. I certainly got the good aging genes from them. 🙂
I love that they still hold hands. We should all hold hands more often.
Maybe next year, I’ll take the month of November to photograph one thing I’m thankful for every single day. I know others chose something to be thankful for each day, but it wasn’t that kind of month for me. Maybe November isn’t meant to be my thankful month, I might have to chose another month to recognize all that I’m thankful for. Or maybe I do it on the 26th day of each month – that might be a fun project to take on. There’s always time to find ways to be thankful in different ways …
