Thursday Thanks Tank #100 - Thanks Tank Contest


I'm celebrating 100 weeks of Thursday Thanks Tanks. If you haven't read how my Thursday Thanks Tanks started, visit this post: Without Fear: Telling my Story of Thankfulness

Before I share my 100th Thanks Tank, I have to say I am very thankful for my husband. Without his encouragement and his sweet gifts of a few gift cards just for this contest, this contest wouldn't be all that it is.

Here's what I am thankful for this week.

1. Coffee
This will buy several wonderful lattes (or Vivanno smoothies- Those are delicious!)


2. Journaling My Thankfulness
This journal has a place to list 5 things you are thankful for everyday. There is also a sweet pen.



3. Good Deals
I love it when I find a good deal. These notecards and the pen were bargains.


4. Appreciation
Words of encouragement from a friend. Thank you's from my family. These simple things make a difference in my day. I like cute cards like this for expressing my appreciation to others.


5. My Husband's Job
My husband works at a Target Distribution Center. I am thankful for everything he does and for his company. This $15 gift card will buy some wonderful things.


6. Slowing Down
I am focusing on slowing down, taking it easy, enjoying my family and the little things in life. I just got my copy of Not So Fast by Ann Kroeker. It looks wonderful.
By the way, I won a copy! Thank you to everyone that hopped over to the Name the Boy (on the cover of the book) Contest. His name is now Henry. She is going to refer to him as Henry in her talks and reference me and my blog. Isn't that fun?!
I highly recommend getting this book.


7. Decluttering
I am constantly working on simplifying and the book It's All Too Much helps me recognize I have way more than I need. This is a fantastic book.


8. Hearing from loved ones
It warms my heart to get a surprise call or card from someone I love. These cards (and pen) are so cute.


9. Praying for Others
I enjoy praying for others. I believe my prayers are effective even if the person doesn't know I am praying. I find that others are encouraged when I drop them a note to share they are on my mind and in my prayers.


10. More Coffee
I am not sure I ever drink my fill. You can get some delicious drinks with this.

The Contest

I am giving away each of the things that I am thankful for (except my husband- he's mine). There will be 10 winners!

Contest Entries

- One entry for a comment telling me something you are thankful for

- One entry for a comment telling me that you follow my blog

- One entry when you blog about the contest on your blog and then leave me a comment about that

- Endless extra entries for each person that comes to my blog and says that you sent them (either from your blog post, an email, or facebook msg - anything). For you to get a comment for it, another person has to comment they came because of you.

Also (in an effort to thank my current readers and commenters), everyone that commented on the last 4 Thursday Thanks Tanks gets entries for those comments.

Contest Deadline

The contest ends on Tuesday, Aug 18 at 10 p.m. Pacific Time

Winners

Winners will be announced on Winner Wednesday (oh yes, you love that title, don't you?) on Wednesday August 19th.



Remember - Take time to be thankful, you will be better off for it.

Mommy of two little blessings said...

Hello. What a great treat. My sister gave me the counting my blessings book over ten years ago and when I am having a down day or notice that I have not said thanks to God for a while I pull it out, it is a great reminder to tell God thank you. *smile* What a special treat.

I am here because Julie over at http://julieandian.blogspot.com/ send me and I wanted to help her out. So, please enter her name for my sake. *smile* And thank you for sharing so many great things with everyone. You are very kind to be so generous. And to remind us all to be thankful for what the Lord has blessed us with. Thank you. By the way, she does the Thrusday Thanks Tank and I find it refreshing to read how thankful she is at least once a week. *smile* It reminds me to be thankful. *smile*

Have a great day knowing God loves you. Blessings.-me-(Mommy of two little blessings)

I'm thankful that you lived in Washington and came to Bethany Baptist Church and that I got to know you. I'm thankful for your blog and that it allows me to keep knowing you now that you are in Oregon. You know I follow your blog - am I supposed to put that in a seperate comment to get an entry for that? Oh well. You inspire me and so many people. I love reading your thankful thoughts and the everyday stuff of your family. I also love the recipes you share.
Love,

Kaye Whitlock said...

I came from Pam Darbonne's blog.

I'm thankful that I actually made it to the top of the St. Simon's Island lighthouse yesterday! Due to 8 orthopedic surgeries & a broken pelvis throughout my lifetime, plus the arthritis that ensues from those injuries (not to mention the 85 extra pounds I had put on), I've never been able to go up those 129 steps with my family before--waiting & watching & taking pictures from the bottom has been my job. After losing 53 lbs, I decided to give it a try, and I DID IT! I was a puddle of tears in joy & thankfulness.

Amanda said...

Lisa with Saving Money...Living Better said...

So many things I'm thankful for, but today I'm especially thankful for my husband. He took our 11 year old daughter on a daddy/daughter date and when I got home with our 14 year old, our 11 year old told me that she had the most awesome date and that she loves spending time with her dad! I am soooo blessed to have a godly husband who is a fantastic dad!

I'm thankful for her.

Christina said...

What a great idea! You're seriously the cutest thing ever! And fantastic prizes by the way! I'm sure I won't win because I didn't even know until your FB posting that you had a blog, and so I couldn't follow it before today, but I do have some quick comments about things I'm thankful inspired by your very contest! I am thankful and inspired by journals. What better place than at God's feet is there to lay down our thoughts, hopes and dreams and to be able to visit them again later. Also for note cards and pens to write in them. I have a bit of an obsession in all of the areas that your contest mentions. I have far too many cards and pads of stationery to fill out with the far too many pens that I own. And I am grateful for the generosity of gift cards that allow me to buy with abandon...particularly those that provide coffee!!! So, kudos on your wonderful ideas and for sharing those ideas with us! Love you pretty lady!
