Back during the A to Z Challenge, I stumbled upon Josie's blog. Each day, I enjoyed reading her list of all the things beginning with the day's letter for which she was grateful. The variety of items was sometimes touching, sometimes funny, but always interesting.
Recently, my long-time blog friend, Considerer, has been doing "10 Things of Thankful" each day. She is wanting to "find the joy in each day and combat the easy way negativity can just happen without our really thinking about it." Even on her worst days, she has managed to come up with 10 things for which she is grateful.
When Considerer threw out the idea of starting a blog hop about being thankful, I offered to be a co-host.
And she let me. I don't know what either one of us was thinking.
I have absolutely no idea how to be a co-host. I have no idea how to set up a linky dohicky. I have no idea how this is actually going to work. I just know I'm a co-host, and it starts this Saturday at midnight.
DID YOU HEAR ME?!?!?
SAT to the UR to the DAY!!!
My dear friend has done everything for it. I have simply told her when it will be midnight compared to GMT (That's in Great Britain, ya know.) and that I will have a list ready. She has done everything else, including making our button.
Now, I know you are desperately wanting to get in on this bit of positive energy. Here's what you bloggers can do:
1. Write a post on "Ten Things of Thankful".
2. Come back here between midnight Saturday (Friday going into Saturday) and Sunday night, with fingers crossed, to see if I did everything that Considerer told me to do, and link up your post.
3. Smile when it works.
4. I bet others would be grateful if you visited them.
If you're not a blogger, have no fear. You can participate, too. Just leave your list in the comments. Positive energy doesn't have to come in the form of a post. :)
I look forward to seeing you this weekend!
