Ah, November. We’re only seven days in and I am already counting down to December. No, not because of Christmas. Or even my birthday for that matter. I’m ready for November to be over because I’m already feeling jaded from the “I’m Thankful” posts on Facebook.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not so much of a cynic that I think no one should post what they’re thankful for. I’m glad you’re marriage is strong and you love your husband. I’m glad your kids are your life and you’re proud of them. I’m also glad that you love football season because it gives you something else to complain about besides the heat of summer.
But…shouldn’t we be thankful for people and things every day not just 30 days in November?
Yes, I’m thankful for my family and friends and that Starbucks finally has pumpkin lattes. But Oh. Em. GEE, I can be thankful for/post that I’m thankful for that all year round (well, not so much the lattes…they’re seasonal).
So, for the entire month of November, I’m going to do Thankful Thursdays. Don’t worry; I’m not going to post about overly-sentimental things that are so sweet they’ll give you a cavity.
For example, for today’s Thankful Thursday I am thankful for Ecards. Those snarky, sarcastic internet sensations that I pin so much on Pinterest I had to make a board completely dedicated to them.
Why am I thankful for Ecards? They say everything I want to say but can’t find the sassiest, most sardonic way of saying. Bless you, Ecards for making my life much funnier.
