November 1st: I posted my first Thanksgiving Thankfuls on Facebook and this is what it said, “On this the first day of November 2011 I am thankful for the incredible authors/books/etc that we have to enjoy in print, audio, and digital format these days!”
November 2nd: I am thankful for the opportunity to sleep in late and start our days on our terms. Sometimes the days/evenings can get very hectic. It is nice to know that if the kids need extra sleep that their bodies can rejuvenate themselves by sleeping until they wake in the morning.
Today I am thankful for the sound of music. Whether it is from Jayden playing the piano, Chloe playing her violin, guitar or piano, or from the radio/computer, I so enjoy listening to music. There is something to suit every mood which is one of my favorite things about music. I have certain songs that soothe my soul, make me want to get up dance, encourage the tears to fall, or remind me of some past memory. Yes today I am thankful for the sound of music. (I write this as Jayden plays the piano in his unmistakable “turbo” style! There is little finesse or musicality to it for him at this stage, just speed.
If you would like to join me in Thanksgiving Thankfuls this year please grab my Thanksgiving Thankfuls button to add to your post, or blog, and leave me a comment with a link to your Thanksgiving Thankfuls post. I will compile all of them and put them together in my Thanksgiving Thanksfuls post at the end of each week. If we start to get a bunch of people participating then I will start adding a linky.
