The ABC game

It's Thankful Thursday and by golly, I'm going to do it this week!

My husband and I have been having some hard days lately. Don't worry, we're fine:)

After a long day yesterday, made longer by barely seeing each other until ten pm, we crashed in bed and talked about our lows of late. (I love talking with Bret late at night when everything is quiet and dark.) It was a great talk. We put forth the "so now what...what do we do about this" question and an idea popped into my head. Seemingly trite, but fun so I voiced it.

"Let's think of blessings from A to Z. A- Al. That was easy. You're turn. B. Go."

It took a few letters to sell Bret, but pretty soon we were laughing and helping each other think of blessings to fit each letter or suddenly thinking of something and going back to change a previous answer.

It was much easier to go to sleep after that; feeling much lighter.

Who'da thunk that the ABCs could be so helpful to one's mood? We didn't solve any issues or anything, but we got some happiness back. Try it out!

And so this Thankful Thursday I am thankful for Bret, that we can make even short time together quality time, spiritual promptings, and the ABCs.

What are you thankful for today?
