Thankful Thursday Kick-Off

Hi folks! Welcome to our first
Thankful Thursday here at
It's A Good Day!

This is your weekly place for
sharing what has you feeling
thankful and appreciative lately.

With Thanksgiving right around
the corner, and Halloween this weekend,
I'm feeling both thankful and nostalgic.
Traditions make me feel that way
more than anything.

One of my fondest memories of
this time of year grown up was watching
"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
with my parents. My sister and I would
grab our pillows and blankets, Mom would
pop popcorn, and we'd all sit and watch
the quirky and fun Shultz gang at it's best.

Tonight I introduced Emma to the same
sweet show. At two years old, we only made
it through about 10 minutes before it was clear
that bedtime was more important to us both,
but for those few minutes she giggled at
Charlie falling flat on his back trying to kick
the football Lucy was holding, saying,
"That boy fall, mama!"

I am so thankful for a childhood full of
wonderful, warm memories. I am thankful
that in a time when sex and lies sell more than
wholesomeness and clean humor, there are still
time we can all find common ground in timeless,
GOOD entertainment to share with our kids.

I am thankful, more than anything, that I've
been blessed, entrusted, with a little life
with whom I can carry on such valued and
cherished - albeit simple - traditions.

What are YOU thankful for today?

I invite you to take a few minutes to
think about at least one think you feel
appreciative for. Anything. Big or small.

You're welcome to link your posts about
thankfulness here, or leave a comment below.
I'll be happy to share some entries a bit later.

I'd love if you included our button!
(I'll have the html code next week.)

Thanks for joining me!
