A Month of Thanksgiving—29 (Last But Not Least)

A Month of Thanksgiving—29 (Last But Not Least)

This November, I plan to post 30 days of gratitude. Here is Day 29, my last day of A Month of Thanksgiving.

229. The first Sunday of Advent
230. All the hope, excitement and potential that Advent brings
231. Opening my Advent devotionals (Even though both start Dec. 1, I couldn’t wait! I am OK with re-reading the messages again tomorrow.)
232. Later-morning Mass on the first Sunday of Advent
233. The privilege to proclaim God’s Word as a lector
234. Singing the Lord Have Mercy in Greek and the Lamb of God in Latin
235. Sitting close to good friends at Mass
236. Visiting with friends after Mass
237. Ordering pizza with a store-credit for lunch
238. Greg taking our three oldest to adoration and the Advent reconciliation service this afternoon
239. Quiet time to read a bit more in my Advent devotionals and journal about hopes and longings of my heart
240. One more slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream
241. Two generous grandpas who buy raffle tickets from each of their five (school-aged) grandchildren
242. Visiting with Greg’s dad
243. Slow-cooker beef and vegetable soup
244. The kids drawing names for “Kris Kringles”
245. Sharing chocolate Advent calendars that also help other kids in need
246. Lighting the first Advent candle, blessing the wreath and saying our prayers
247. The hope that by Christmas, Jesus will come closer to me, and I will come closer to Him
248. Reading a book from our Advent/Christmas book basket
249. Freshly bathed children
250. Jenny, who invited me to join her in posting 30 days of Thanksgiving this November

One thought on “A Month of Thanksgiving—29 (Last But Not Least)

  1. I'm thanking you in my post too! And we drew Kris Kringles today too! And we went to Mass…well I could go on except when it got to roast I'd have to confess scrambled eggs and sausage for dinner–and toast because the eggs and sausage were not enough.
