Thankful Project- November recap

November sucked. I did still manage to write down what I was thankful for every day. I wanted to at least share my list at the end of the month, but well, after my Grandma passed away, I wasn't motivated to do anything. I still haven't written down all the things I want to remember about her and growing up with her. I start, but then i cry and cannot finish. I will, I'm not sure when though.
