Monday marks the beginning of November. The month of (American) Thanksgiving, the season to give thanks. November 1 is the gateway to the holiday season, in a way.
As much as I’d like to start listening to holiday music come Monday, it may be a bit too early for me to be blasting Michael Buble’s holiday songs, at least according to Dan. Instead, I decided to look for another way to acknowledge and celebrate the month of November.
This morning, I dug out some scrap paper and cut out 25 slips of paper. I numbered each one, and collected them in a half-pint jar. Starting on Monday, I will be writing one Little Thing that I am thankful for on the back of the corresponding slip. And come Thanksgiving, I will have at least 25 Little Things to be grateful for.
As for you, Savvy Readers, I challenge you to join me. You can write your Little Things on colored slips of paper, post-its, notecards, or just keep a typed list. Do whatever works best for you. And if you send me a note, picture, or example of one of the things on your list, I will compile them all and post them on Thanksgiving!
If you want a badge for your blog (though you don’t have to be a blogger to participate), here is the code for a text widget:

So who’s with me on this fun holiday challenge?
