Thankful Thursday #1: St Jude’s Ranch

As part of my 2015 goal of transforming my life, I intend to find ways to help others and make a concerted effort to be thankful for what I have.

What I did to help others this week:

St Judes

St. Jude’s Ranch has a recycled card program that uses the fronts of old cards to create new cards for sale. I found out about this program a few years ago and have been sending in my old holiday cards ever since. This year I sent 14 card fronts that would have been tossed in the trash otherwise. The program accepts all types of cards (not just holiday) and currently has a need for Birthday and Thank You. If you would like to help too, that would be excellent!

This week I am most thankful for:


My dog Cooper being found alive and well. He went out New Year’s Eve and bolted when all the fireworks started going off. I called him for 2 hours with help from my neighbor to no avail. After a sleepless night (for him and me), I found him cold and wet by the front porch. It’s crazy how much I love this little stinker!

Please share what you are thankful for and any ideas for giving back. I would love to hear from you!
