Thanks Giving Inspired Fridays: Week 2

Thankfulness Lately January 13, 2012

ButtonHow was your week?  I have been overjoyed to read all of your thankful tweets, facebook and blog posts this week.  More than a few times, I heard you say that although you had a bad day, you were thankful to be brought back to a moment of gratitude through this project.  That’s what it’s all about, don’t you think?  It’s so easy to give thanks on the good days, but it means the most when we give thanks on the hard days.

If you would like to see the stream of #365thanks tweets, click here.  (you don’t have to be a member of Twitter to read them)

Here are a few of my favorites from the week (although I love them all!):

Jessica said, “I’m thankful for receiving not 1, but 2 job offers that I love! I am so lucky to be facing such a great decision.”
Hooray Jessica! Congratulations!

Angel said, “Thankful His mercies are new to me every morning.”
Amen, sister.

Monsie and Jen were both thankful for clean water on the same day.
Definitely something I have been thinking about too.  Such a blessing!

Joe said, “I’m thankful for 3 hours of sleep. Three more hours than I thought I’d get.”
Way to go Joe!  I would probably be complaining about only getting 3.

I’m having fun sharing my gratitude posts and seeing some of yours through Instagram.  If you have an iPhone, make sure to download the free app and share your thankfulness with us by tagging your photos with #365thanks.

Here are my shots from the week:

If you are sharing your thankfulness on Facebook, and we aren’t “friends”, make sure to post them on the Inspired Facebook page so we can all see them too!  Even if you tag them with #365thanks, I won’t be able to read them if we aren’t connected.  Thanks!

Starting next week, I plan to highlight someone or something that I am thankful for in my TGIF post.  I would also like to start featuring some of you and your gratitude stories as the year goes on.  If you are interested in sharing, please let me know.

Have a great weekend!

Be sure to link up your favorite “thanks” of the week or your blog post below.  And keep spreading the word!  You all are doing a great job!
