Thankful Thursday?

When we were brainstorming ideas on Debs' blog I tossed the idea out there of doing something that I try to do on my own blog.  I have a Thankful Thursday category and every week (but actually, not recently, so don't go look and tell me I'm wrong!) I make a list of things I'm thankful for.  It helped tremendously when I was at a very demanding job that constantly tried to pull me into a bad mood.  It was good to go back, even when I was having a bad day, and think of all that I have to be thankful for and ways that God has blessed me. 

Would y'all be interested in doing something like that here?  We could do Thankful Thursday or Wonderful Wednesday or Fantastic Friday or Terrific Tuesday or whatever.  Any thoughts???

I figured it would be a good idea to have another consistent post, too.  Like weigh-ins, it will be something that's always posted to get people a bit more involved, and even if I'm not around to post it, someone else can.

So, what say you?

Boo,
I'm all for it. Any of the days work but if we do a weigh in on Monday then an optional weigh in on Friday maybe Wednesday would be a good day. I dunno. I'm up for anything

let's do it!

I like the idea. I would also like an extra weigh-in. I usually do all my damage over the weekends so I think a comparision of my friday weight and monday weight would be good for me.

I like the idea about posting uplifting things, things we're thankful for and I also like having a 2nd weigh in and comparing Monday to Friday or whenever that 2nd weigh in should be.

Excellent idea, young Boobon.

Sounds good to me. Sorry I haven't been around, I have has a hard time with leaving comments. I hope it works this time.

Ok, so if Boo could do a post each Thursday, I think we should run with this. I'm happy to do next Thursday for you, cos you'll be a bit occupied elsewhere..!
The way i see it, Boo'll put up a post and we'll all add stuff in the comments, right?
Aweseome :)

Debbie said...

yeah, debs, that's how i'll do it.

YAY! i'm glad you guys like the idea! i was worried b/c i didn't receive not one email in my inbox telling me anyone had commented. so i figured u all hated the idea. then i clicked over here this morning and found 7 comments! glad you're all on board!

i can post one today, just to get us started and then starting next week we can go back to thursdays.

silly, debs. i'll be with YOU next thursday! that's when my flight arrives!!!

Debs said...

yes, but i can post it before i come to the airport.
I've been getting the comments for this post in my inbox. I don't know why.
I seem to get most all the comments. Maybe they just come to the admin. Actually, i think i had to add my email somewhere in the settings to get comments emailed to me.

Debs said...

oh, we need to talk about Thursday - what your plans are. If you wanna stay here, or me to drive you to Bedford, or what...

Debbie said...

Ok, I added my email, too.

I haven't really thought about Thursday much. I need to make my way to Bedford, but I guess it's not dire if I don't get there straight away. 'Cause I want to hang out w/ YOU for a bit and meet Ms. Elly! Do you think perhaps I can stay with you Thurs night and we go to Bedford Friday???

shall we have a chat on facebook or msn? rather than via the comments of this post?!
