Thanksgiving Challenge

I mentioned before how I had planned to try to post one thing I'm thankful for each day this month, but thanks to being depressed (and a little to forgetting my own idea until several days into the month) I didn't do it.
Join the challenge by writing your own list of things you're thankful for and joining the carnival
Well, I've had another idea--on Thanksgiving I'll be posting a massive list of things I'm thankful for. Right now I have my sights set on the lofty goal of 365 things--one for each day of the year. I haven't started writing the list yet though... I may end up settling with 100 things if I get too overwhelmed....
Anyway, I wanted to issue an official challenge to all my readers to work on lists of their own, so that when I post my list we can all link them together and revel in the gratitude. ☺

I would LOVE to see this get big! On Thanksgiving morning (or the night before) when I post my post, I will include a Mr Linky on it, so that anyone and everyone who joins me can share their links there. So tell your friends, spread the love, and Be Grateful!!

BTW, I will be posting my list in sections--Family, Skills, Home, Faith, Technology, etc so that it's more reader-friendly (it's gonna be a loooong list!)...just a thought for anyone who plans to join me!

If you would like the button, the script is there in the sidebar! (Thanks a million to this site for teaching me how to make a scriptbox for my button!!!)

Hey, I'm with you! Shall I blog about it? We can maybe create a Thanksgiving blog challenge?

YES!!! post about it on your blog! Spread the word! That would be awesome! (and also will keep me motivated enough to get that 365 things!!!)

I like this idea. I, very irregularly, do a Thankful Thursday post. I will try 365 things too! Sounds fun! (LOL, How much time do I have before Thanksgiving to get this list done???)

Love it! What a great idea. For me, the best way to fight off depression is to develop an attitude of gratitude. So instead of focusing on all the negative things in my life, I try to relish in what is going well and it makes a world of difference. That being said, since depression runs in my family, I recognize that if it's chemical imbalance, "positive thinking" doesn't always do the trick! ;) Thanks for your inspiration!
