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.
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.
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.
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.
I am giving away each of the things that I am thankful for (except my husband- he's mine). There will be 10 winners!
- 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.
The contest ends on Tuesday, Aug 18 at 10 p.m. Pacific Time
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.
