You know I have always enjoyed your gratitude posts, but I especially like your duet format this month AND for seeing the little blackboard pop up in various locations around the house.

This numbering makes it feel like a competition....One in which I am being beaten like a drum.

"What's the score?"
"1569 to 42."
"Whoa!"

Sharon said...

I agree with Sandy. I enjoy the duet of both of you giving thanks together.
and Sam... Don't feel bad you didn't start this when she did, right?
