A-Z Thanksgiving list!If you can think, you can thank!Happy almost New Year! As it’s the Dainty M. tradition, every December is for the Think-Thank Challenge. Unfortunately, I couldn’t kick-start the challenge early enough this year due to school commitments. Anywho, I hope this still helps you in making your thanksgiving list (if you’ve not made one already).

Regardless of how crappy, beaten down, or disappointing the year may seem; a closer look will reveal so much to be thankful for.

The Think-Thank Challenge is all about making a thanksgiving list with all the English alphabets. All 26 of ’em!

So here’s my abridged version for 2017:

  • I’m thankful that I’m ALIVE and breathe in clean AIR.
  • I’m thankful for BLESSINGS, and for BREAD and tea.
  • I’m thankful for CAPACITY building this year.
  • I’m thankful for my DAD and the DAINTY-M blog.
  • I’m thankful for EVERYTHING I fail to mention on this list.
  • I’m thankful for FORGIVENESS; for FAMILY; for FRIENDS; and FOOD.
  • I’m thankful for the GOODNESS of God; for GRACE; and for GROWTH.
  • I’m thankful for the HOLY SPIRIT; for my HOME; for my HEALTH.
  • I’m thankful for INTELLIGENCE and INSPIRATION.
  • I’m thankful for JOY; for the grace to see JANUARY to December.
  • I’m thankful for KINDNESS; for my KITCHEN skills that have improved.
  • I’m thankful for LOVE; for LIGHT; for my LAPTOP.
  • I’m thankful for ME and all God is doing in my life; for MUSIC.
  • I’m thankful for every NEW thing I got this year.
  • I’m thankful for OBSTACLES I overcame with God’s help.
  • I’m thankful for PRAYERS answered; for my school, PAU; and for PERFUMES.
  • I’m thankful for the QUEST to know Him more.
  • I’m thankful for the RAINY season; for RELATIONSHIPS; for my READERS.
  • I’m thankful for SOUND MIND; for SALVATION of my soul; for SHOES.
  • I’m thankful for TRIPS I went on; for TEMPTATIONS that brought me closer to God.
  • I’m thankful for UNDERSTANDING.
  • I’m thankful for VICTORY; and VICTORIOUS LIVING (blog motto).
  • I’m thankful for my WEAKNESSES and how He uses them to His glory.
  • I’m thankful for all the words that start with X that I can’t recall.
  • I’m thankful for YOU and all God is doing in your life, and for the YEAR ending.

  1. TTC2016 was funnnn!! I am thankful for God most especially, His presence that was with me in a new way this year, my FAMILY, FRIENDS that were as close as family being there for me in all situations.


  2. I was privileged to have participated in your Think-Thank Challenge last year… It was great

    One unique thing about this year’s challenge is the actualization of the dream I have been praying since the beginning of this year which was to start a professional blog and that prayer was answerd in the middle of the Year. Amongst other great things God has done.

    I made my first $150 before the end of the Year… I think this is worth thanking God. ⛪

    I got a premium WordPress theme I have always wanted… Gained admission into my desired institution. Started a successful blog for my Local Government. Running a round table program for my LG. Getting steady web design and creation jobs. And above all seeing another year for greater achievements.

    We lost a church member at about 7pm of 31st December 2017. And here am I, receiving the breeze of a bright new Year despite my shortcomings.

    Sometimes I wonder what I have done to benefit from God’s grace. I see my self as not worthy. My ways are not right, my thoughts are always in the negative directions. In all God grace and mercy always sees me through.

    Now tell me; why won’t I thank God? Everything about him is just great

    Thank you Lord

    Sorry I couldn’t follow the rules, I was carried away by what God has done for me.

    But I am sure you will find all what God has done for in not just the 26 Alphabets including Figures. 😊

  3. What a Beautiful List M! I love how you’re thankful for all things, whether they are big or small. And I am impressed how you are thankful for even the negative things that end up working out for your good and His glory!
