30-Day Bloggers Group: November 29-30, 2013 Serial Prompt: Part One: What are you thankful for? On the first day (today), give me an overview of everything you were thankful for at the age of 10, and everything you are thankful for in your life currently. Feel free to make two lists. How have your lists changed? On the second day (tomorrow), think about your future self and make a list of what you will be thankful for in the future. Please be inventive with this. Make a life for yourself and imagine what the world may be like 20, 30, 40, 50, etc. years in the future.
