Thankful for our Soldiers, Near and Far…

Let’s start our Novemberies off with this blogpost by John E. DiScala:

“Delta Flight 2255 from Atlanta to Los Angeles seemed to be an ordinary flight with the exception of Candy, who was the most loving flight attendant I’ve ever encountered. Besides using her Southern charm to quickly defuse every situation, she began her welcome announcement by thanking the handful of uniformed soldiers on-board for serving our country. Her poignant message was followed by applause, and it put into perspective that none of us would be able to do what we do without these brave men and women.” Read more here: http://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/fallen-soldier-213011521.html

What is Novemberies?

What is Novemberies?

We all have favorite memories, right? Moments in time that remind us of everything great about life. From parents to children to someone at the mall being kind, we all experience these moments that make us stop and think, “Wow”.

That’s what this blog is – a place to share those moments. A place to challenge yourself for one month during the year to not just witness these moments, but to say thank you to the people who provide them. We get swept up in the holidays and the gift giving and the hurriedness of life, and this is our chance to stop focusing, even momentarily, on the monetary aspects of life and instead focus on the people in life.

Here you will find a single printable sheet with 14 small cards. One side has a printed saying, the other is blank – and that’s where you write your simple message. Maybe it was your waitress who provided you a smile this morning, or a friend that helped you, or perhaps you just like the saleswoman’s nails. Maybe you see a frazzled Dad in line at the grocery store and want to remind him that you get it, and you are grateful for his patience. Whatever it is, just say it. 14 cards in the 28 days before Thanksgiving. Then come share your stories here, and we’ll post them. Hopefully those you share the cards with will visit too, and pass on the idea.

The form is in word or PDF. Simply download, print, tuck in your wallet and start making someone else’s day!
