Thankful in November

“A human being is a creature who walks on two legs and is ungrateful” from Notes from the Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

I have always thought that it was a particularly apt quote and so I was very excited to pick up from a friend on Facebook two years ago to post something you are thankful for each day for the month of November. I rose to the challenge for the last two years and I’ll endeavor to do it again this year. Look for my thankfulness this month on Facebook, Twitter and Google+

To start us off, as I visited Ushers Ferry tonight, I am thankful after seeing the flooding back in 2008 that so much of the village has survived.

And, if you want to read the book with the quote for yourself, find a paper copy or find it online here:

  1. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I don’t Facebook much but it would be worth logging on every day to do this.
