Have you been participating in 22 Days of Gratitude or something similar?
It seems a lot of people have this year; I’ve been excited to see so many “Today I am thankful for….” posts on Facebook lately. I know it stems mainly from the fact that it’s November, “Turkey Day” fast approaching and all, but wouldn’t it be lovely if it continued past that?
Once again it is becoming a beautiful reminder to the kids of all they have to be thankful for each day. They really got a kick out of tracing Daddy’s hand last weekend and having him add a leaf to the tree. (I even managed to trace the dog’s “hand,” and asked the kids to help think of what she might be thankful for as well.)
Here are just a few of the things they said they were thankful for this week:
- My house, my home, and my toys
- Seeing, and eating
- Sparkly Barbies and God and Jesus (I’m sure God is happy he ranks up there with Barbie!)
- Playing hide-n-seek
- Playing fetch (Okay, this one belongs to the fury one…)
Okay, now I want to hear from you!
Leave a comment sharing something you are thankful for this week.
