The blogosphere as well as my Facebook page is being blown up with those joining in 30 days of Thankfulness and although I don't normally follow these trends I figured this time I would...you know, since the intent of this blog was to help me to become more thankful and grateful. I haven't done a very good job of it so this just may be a kick start for me.
I won't be posting the normal "I'm thankful for my parents, spouse, kids etc..." because those are a given for me, although I could probably do a better job of showing it. I will be posting things that make me stop, and take a breath to prolong the moment or capture the image in my mind. If I'm lucky enough I'll be able to capture the image with a camera as well.
I should have posted this yesterday but I couldn't get it done in time so I'm cheating already...just pretend this was posted on the 1st.
One of the chores that nobody likes to do is bringing the trash bin around back after trash pick-up day. I don't know why, it is just overlooked often so when I went to do the dreaded chore on Wednesday evening I was rewarded with this beauty!

Three solid days of rain from the effects of hurricane Sandy and 2 inches of snow couldn't stop this daisy from blooming.
It's striking orange, pick colors stopped me in my tracks and reminded me that Mother Nature is truly spectacular and I am blessed.
