Thankfulness Challenge Update

It’s been less than a week since we started the photo thankfulness challenge over at Lemon Water’s facebook page. Despite writing this blog, I don’t usually share a lot on facebook, so this project is especially challenging for me. To top it off, my husband and I have made the decision of not sharing pictures of our son on facebook, which means that I have to be creative to show everything that I am thankful for without posting pictures that show our faces. Not easy.

I dreaded the first post, and the second too, but yesterday and today, #3 & #4, I have found so many little things I am thankful for that showing our faces has not been necessary.

It seems like today I could easily post several days worth of thankfulness, but I don’t want to. I am enjoying finding those little moments in my day when I have to stop and realize just how great something is, no matter how small.

Baby Sleeping

Baby sleeping in. Something to be thankful for.

Today it was my son sleeping in a bit, tomorrow, who knows? What I do know is that having the thought of finding things to be thankful for has made me appreciate little things much more. I am, all of a sudden, happier in my life, as I realize how many great things there are in my life. This makes a simple social media challenge, something much bigger and important.

I can’t take credit for the challenge, Mary had the idea to start it, but I highly recommend everyone do it, even if you just take mental notes. Life can be very hard, but it also can be wonderful. I am glad I am enjoying the little things more than ever.

How is your challenge going? What smaller things are you thankful for?
