Home: giving thanks
If I had a quarter for every time I SAID, "say thank you" I'd be wearing jewels and dining on bacon (tee hee). How many times do I SHOW thanks giving? Thanksgiving should be more than a holiday. It should be a way of life. This month we have practiced thankfulness around here with the "thankfulness tree". Each evening after dinner we each write on a leaf what we're thanking God for and add it to the tree. My kids have really enjoyed this and I've noticed an overall attitude of gratefulness in the past few weeks that was almost nonexistent before. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. Hopefully this one will stick. Happy Thanksgiving!
