End of November Blog Challenge and Announcement for December Challenge!...

Wow! I hope that those of you that participated in the Gratitude Blog Challenge enjoyed it as much as I did! One thing that I heard over and over from many that participated was how great it was to be constantly taking note of all of our many blessings. Even on days that were hard, we were able to find something positive for which to be thankful. Great job to all of you. If you did not get to blog everyday, don't be too hard on yourself. I will be issuing a new challenge for December - so watch for a post later today. This one will be different and I hope it will be lots of fun for you all. =]

Okay...please come and post a comment here on this post. I will close all comments on Tuesday, December 2nd at 6 pm PST. I will announce the winner on December 3rd!



Don't forget to check back later today for our new challenge!!

Sherry,
Thank you so much for this November Gratitude Post Challenge. I blogged every day this month, except for the 1st, but I did a bonus entry today to make up for it.

This challenge truly changed my daily outlook. I cannot thank you enough.

I'm looking forward to the December challenge.

I did it! :) And it was wonderful! I did an extra one today since I didn't see your challenge until November 2. I didn't miss a single day on my personal blog, and missed only one day for lack of internet access on our ministry blog! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Thanks so much for the challenge Sherry. Though I always write in my journal, it was fun to post my gratitude on my blog - the big and the small events. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for December.

Thanks for this challenge, Sherry! I didn't get to participate every day, but I made up for it with 22 posts in one day ; ) The constant awareness of blessings that this challenge brought was prize enough, but thanks for offering a real prize, too!

Hi Sherry!

Thanks so much for the challenge. I really enjoyed participating and looking for something each day to be thankful for. Some days there were several things and others, well, it was a stretch to find something that I felt I could be thankful for.

Happy holidays to you and your family!

I was impressed that I got to blog almost every day (except when internet access was $10 per day)! So thanks for the challenge

Done! Thank you so much Sherry! Some of my posts were delayed but I thought about the challenge every single day and I think that is the important part. Thank you so much for this!!!

Lisa said...

Wow! Thanks Sherry for an awesome adventure! I blogged every day except for this past week. I was having a hard time doing the little things every day following my friends car wreck and the holiday but I did remember every day to be quiet and give thanks for something small.

Sherry,

Thanks for the challenge. I had fun and it helped with the craziness around here to stop each evening and think about a good thing about the day. I also learned how to blog ahead and set the posts to post when I am gone like I was over Thanksgiving weekend. Of course that only works correctly when one puts the correct date in but the posts were done. I even added an extra today because I did not start until the 3rd.

Thanks again. I am looking forward to what you have in mind for this month.

I did it! Thanks for doing this challenge. It was nice to sit and take the time to think about what I was grateful for everyday.

Brynn said...

I actually did this every day! (I actually forgot last night, was already in bed & then popped up remembering. I ran to the computer (ok, stumbled) & posted for the day. I was NOT going to go all month long & then "blow it" the last day. LOL

Thanks for the fun challenge, I really enjoyed it & can't wait to see what you have in store for us this month.

Thanks. It was fun... and that was the most blog posts ever for me in a month...

I am grateful for many things... and if it takes a daily challenge to bring that out... well, THANKS again!

Sherry - thank you for initiating this challenge - I was constantly thinking about what I was grateful for, even if I didn't blog about it. It really made a difference for me.

Joan said...

What a GREAT month it has been. My 30 entries are being turned into an album.

tosin said...

Thanks for the challenge! It is always a blessing to take the time to stop and notice all the wonderful things around me that I am grateful for.

Ok. so I did this to win one of your wonderful prizes because i know anything you make is amazing. But I didn't blog everyday. I think I'm missing two? In the long run though, I would have done this even if there wasn't a prize. it was so wonderful and looking back on my blessings is a source of encouragment for those days that simply suck. Thanks Sis and I can't wait to see what the next challenge is! <3

Traci said...

I didn't keep up with the challenge because I don't post daily, but I did want to thank you for the inspiration!!!! It was a great idea and the posts that I did write all followed the Gratitude theme and it was such a great way of looking at life.

I'm joining in on the December challenge and I'm actually going to try to pre-plan daily posts for those!
