TToT - 2/24/17

Ten Things of Thankful
 
Hello!  It's time for another round of Ten Things of Thankful!  How has you're week been, was it a good one, or one of those you had to push yourself through?  Either way, this is the place to come to put it all in perspective.  In the really good times we celebrate how blessed we are, and in the tough times we celebrate that we made it, one foot in front of the other, and how strong we are!
 
Also keep in mind that no one is counting the items on your list, so do the best you can with it, and we'll be inspired by reading it.  An attitude of gratitude is contagious!  Sometimes one reason to be thankful in your life can be as powerful as a dozen, it's all about learning to see our lives with open eyes, open hearts, and open minds, and realize that there are good things, big and little, happening to us every day. 
 
This week's link-up will open shortly after midnight CST on Thursday night, and will remain open until Tuesday night, so you have plenty of time to work on your post.  Please check back next week for new links that were added in later, they'd appreciate your comments too!

TTOT - 2/10/17 - We Begin Again

Ten Things of Thankful
 
The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop was started by Lizzi Lewis at Considerings as a means of seeking out and sharing the good things in her life, changing her attitude in the process. She soon discovered that her sharing inspired others to look for the good things in their lives too, even at times when it is difficult to find those silver linings.
 
 TToT has been an ongoing weekly blog hop since June of 2013, and many people have taken up the challenge to join in and share their own reasons to be thankful. Lizzi has done an amazing job of hosting TToT for the past three-and-a-half-years, with the support of an awesome group of co-hosts, and she is ready for a well-deserved break. She has graciously allowed me to take on the role of TToT administrator and move TToT to its very own blog address here. 
 
Many, many thanks to you, dearest Lizzi, for all the work you've done to start TToT and keep it up and running these past years. Focusing on the things we have to be thankful for has made all the difference for me and many others! Blessings to you always <3
 
And so we begin again with this week's link-up!  I'm still working on the button code and will hopefully have that in place for you by next week. :-)  Don't forget to drop by our TToT Facebook group too!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
The reason behind asking you to list ten things you are thankful for is to challenge you to look hard at your life and discover both the big ways and small ways that you've been blessed in the past week. However, I don't want anyone to feel that they can't participate unless they list ten, so do the best you can, share as many as you've got, and don't feel the need to make excuses if you're short. We're just happy to have you sharing with us!

A new link-up will open early Friday morning each week and will remain open until the following Tuesday night, so you have plenty of time and don't need to rush or worry if your weekend is busy. Life trumps blogging, and it should!

My only requests are that you include the TToT logo and a link to our TToT link-up in your post, and that you take the time to read and comment on as many other posts as you can. The whole point of this blog hop is to share and to encourage each other... that's where the magic begins!
