Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 26: Even When It Stinks

I washed my face with Eau de Stinkbug this morning.

Apparently one was hiding out. When I smothered my face in a nice hot washcloth, I was greeted with his scent. I guess he didn't appreciate the steam bath I gave him. That's okay 'cuz I didn't appreciate his scent under my nose.

So I suppose we're even.

That has nothing to do with giving thanks. Except that it made for a good laugh. For Jeff. 

And to remind me to give thanks all the time. Even when it stinks.

So if you can't think of anything to give thanks for today, you can be thankful that you didn't wake up like I did. And maybe for a good laugh too.

You're welcome.

There are just a few more days before Thanksgiving, and I have an idea.

I know many of you have found me through Facebook, and I am really thankful you've visited! Why not post something(s) you're thankful for on your wall today and each day through Thursday? If you do, would you please post it on my wall too? I'd love to hear from you!

Giving thanks is contagious, and what a great thing to catch! So "sneeze" your thanks all over the internet. Maybe we'll start an epidemic.
