Yes, I know every one's done a Thanksgiving post already.

This isn't that.

Two, maybe three years ago, I found a lovely blog in December. She started a project called "30 days to a grateful heart" -- to consciously find, for the busy holiday season, things that made her thankful.

Last year, she invited people to join her.

It was certainly the most blog-posting I've ever done.
I didn't keep up the habit of blogging gratitude.

I will say, however, that the exercise made me more aware of the little things, and the big ones, that make up my days.

All the petty annoyances? All the cranky moods?  Are, on any ledger sheet, more than offset by the sheer amount of awesome in my life.

Today, I'm starting another month of recognitions.
Today, I am thankful for the reminders.  For this idea, and the community I saw last year around it.

Happy December, y'all.
