30 Days of Thanks

30days thanks-200pix
One of my favorite things about fall is the attitude of thankfulness it brings.  I shouldn't need a reminder to appreciate the abundant blessings in my life, but I'll admit that sometimes I take them for granted.  Join me in making a list of 30 blessings you are grateful for and link it up below.  The link up will remain open until the end of the month.

Rules for the link up:
 1. Follow the hostesses:

2. Link up your list of 30 blessings.
