Just come on and come on and raise your glass

It's that time again! November is upon us and
you can either accept or decline this challenge,
but it really isn't that difficult,
and the results are wonderful,
sooo I would advise you
to accept!
It is time for the Attitude of Gratitude Challenge!

For those of you who have not played before, the "CODE" is outlined below.


Each day during the month of November you will send an email to the people you want to include in your own challenge! You only have to send one list a day, so send it to as many people as you like! Each daily email will contain *3* "things" for which you are grateful. [Except for the week of Thanksgiving (November 19th to 25th). All entries this week must contain*5 "*things"].

Definition of "things"- the term "things" is used here to encompass a myriad of stuff including, but not limited to: a certain set of circumstances, an event, an inanimate object distinguished from a living being, possessions or effects, a deed or act, a product of work or activity, an idea or notion, a piece of news or information, a person, a memory, anything that makes you smile.


- The challenge is to come up with 3 ORIGINAL "things" each day. Try
not to repeat entries.

- Your email should be sent by midnight each night. If you miss a day
or two, no biggie, but you have to make it up, no skipping! (Note:
For some of you, this may require accessing your email account on a more
regular basis).

- The challenging part of the challenge: One of your entries each day
must either be the name of a person who you spoke with that day about how
you appreciate them OR an experience involving a person who did something
for you ( i.e. held the door or the elevator for you) and you gave
them a "Super" thank you.

NOTE: A "Super" thank you is more than a simple " thanks" or
"thank you". Let's say, for example (hypothetically speaking,
of course), you ordered a "tricky" order with specific preferences at a
restaurant and the waitress gets it all right! Along with
leaving a nice tip, a "Super" thank you would include remarks to the
waitress along the lines of "thanks so much for getting that right".
"Super" thank you's involve more interaction between the giver
and receiver and are typically more sincere. I think you get
the idea.

Okay, the challenge starts November 1st, which was 3 days ago (whoops).
I will just be including my 3 items at the end of blog posts,
(because I secretly want more people to read my blog)
However you choose to participate... Good Luck!


Please note that challenge participation may result in any or all of the

-you will be surprised at all the Lord has done for you

-(my personal favorite) you may find yourself singing as the days go by

-your doubts will fly
