I remember in the beginning of this challenge that I had a little problem identifying something to be grateful for.  It didn't come quickly.  What I learned from it is that we need to consider things on a regular basis that are so treasyred in our lives.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,
I think what most of us discover is it isn't the "things" that we are most grateful for.  Have a wonderful blessed day.

The problem I have found with the Keurig is it forces you to think, and when you don't have any coffee, that can be a challenge. I am forever doing things like a) forgetting to put a coffee cup under it, b) forgetting to insert a coffee pod, c) punching the wrong button that now wants to estimate remaining water or d) forgetting to turn it off when I'm done. Just saying it requires cognitive skills that not might be readily available the minute you roll out of bed.

Hello Carol,  all great blogs,  I am not sure if I will complete ten because I got a late start.

Oh, I've loved this year's challenge and reading what is important to everyone, Carol...including you! 

I have one last one to write and am trying to decide what that one will be - I want it to be original and it seems that many of the things that I am so thankful for, have been covered by someone else!

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents ,

HI Will Hamm ,
I almost missed it too, after not returning from my trip until the 5th.  Glad I saw the contest so I could get 10 in by the deadline.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
