Thankful Thursday - Pay It Forward

I feel like I'm surrounded by bad news these days, especially at work. I work in the financial industry, so it's hard to escape hearing about the economy. It's pretty much thrown in my face on a daily basis. Uncertainty has become a way of life around the office.

In the midst of all of this, I can't help but think about ALL that I have to be thankful for. My wonderful family and friends. Living in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Our warm and cozy home. Our health. It's really difficult to complain about anything when I think about these things - although sometimes I do complain anyway, because it's fun.

So today, in honor of everything I am thankful for, I am going to Pay It Forward. Butwhymommy was recently spreading some love in the blogosphere, and I was one of the lucky winners - so now I am going to pay it forward to three of you!

Be one of the first three commenters on this post, and you will receive a package from me with some fun things from San Francisco. In return, you Pay It Forward to three of your commenters, and so on and so on. Be sure I can contact you via email, so I can get the details of where to mail your goodies.
