My former pastor’s wife, Linn, is the one who began the tradition of Thankful Thursday. But today, she wrote a post about the difference between being grateful and thankful, and decided she’d like to emphasize both.

I’d like to believe that I have solved the problem.

Grateful + Thankful = Grankful

Today I am grankful…

…for the Compassion group in India, and that they have taken time every day to write and remind us with real-time photos and stories of the significant difference $32 a month can make.

…that not only do I have ONE steady job, but the option of a second one if I turn the first one down. I don’t take that lightly in today’s economy.

…for those irreplaceable moments lying in bed with Matt laughing our heads off.

…for friendships that are 98% enjoyment, and a rare 2% disagreement.

…that I can take a nap after I finish writing this.

…that someone, somewhere in this world is enjoying some sunshine.

…that exactly 2 weeks from today we’ll be kissing Missoula goodbye and flying straight to Costa Rica!

What are you grankful for today?

For those of you who have left comments… THANK YOU! I thoroughly enjoy each one!
