Tomorrow is Thanksgiving...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the day we remember all we are are thankful for and eats foodz galore.

Oh wait, did I say all we are thankful for?  Yes, I did!  Hmm, maybe I should rephrase that.  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the day we remember a lot of nice things we are thankful for, and eat foodz galore.

Why don't we remember all we are thankful for, I wonder?  I wish I knew.  Perhaps it's that we have so much, and lose sight of the fact that it's not us who got us to that point.  Maybe that's it, maybe it's not.  Whatever the case, I believe we fail to remember all we are thankful for, even on this day where we remember much more than on other days of the year.

Today, I watched a video that Lauren from The Thinking Closet put in a subscriber email, and I can't help but share it with all of you peoples!  Lauren said in her email that she laughed out loud.  I was not expecting to laugh out loud myself, but guess what.  I did laugh out loud!

For realz, this video just makes you want to laugh.  It's so funny, and at the same time, gives you a new perspective on how and why you can and should be thankful.  It makes you think outside the box.  I love the part where he says sadness is good because it reminds you of what you care about!  Ha!  Amen, brothah!

So now, my itty bitty task for you, my dear reader, is to watch this wonderful video, and then tell me about something you are thankful for, other than, friends... family... food.  Because let's face it, even though those things are wonderful, and yes, you ought to be thankful for them, they are just so stereotypical, and well, boring.  I want you to tell me something think-outside-the-boxish that you are thankful for (feel free to comment on the actual YouTube video also.  I don't want to take any comments away from him.).  I hope this video will open your eyes to things you didn't even realize you were thankful for!
Of course, since I'm asking you to tell me something think-outside-the-boxish that you are thankful for, I have to tell you something think-outside-the-boxish that I am thankful for too, right?  Okay, I am thankful for...empty egg cartons to step on!  (Seriously, step all over that thing.  Especially if it's cardboard.  It is a joy-producing activity.)

This is something else I am very thankful for.  :)

So tell me, me what think-outside-the-boxish sort of thing are YOU thankful for?


  1. Great job, Maggie!! I always loving reading your blog. 😊

  2. Things I heart: your spelling of "foodz," when Kid President uses the word "people-y," and your challenge to us to think outside-the-box-ish. One thing I'm thankful for today is the view from our living room window that overlooks the lake. It never fails to put me at ease when I pause long enough to take it in. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Maggie. And thanks for passing along the inspiration!

    1. I love it when he say that too. He's so funny! The view from y'alls' window must be gorgeous. Lakes are so very pretty. :) Thank YOU for passing along the inspiration! Have a great Thanksgiving!

  4. I am grateful for messy kitchens (: Because it means good food has been made <3 And often it means making memories with those that we love most...never take your family and friends for granted.

    1. I had not thought of that! That is such a good thing to be thankful for. :) Sometimes I even enjoy cleaning the kitchen, haha! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  5. I LOVE Kid President :)
    I'm thankful for the memories I'm making with some of my best friends right now. I know that we will not all live this close for very long and soon we will move apart. So I'm going to be thankful for the memories we are making, not thinking about how upset I am that it won't happen again.
    Love your blog <3

    1. He's so hilarious, right?
      Oh yes, friendship is such a wonderful thing; something not to be wasted or taken for granted. I love that.
      And thank you! Love yours too. :)
