Thanksgiving is one my favorite holiday. (One. Halloween tops them all.) For the past three or four years we’ve been driving 2 hours over the beautiful mountains to spend thanksgiving with my mother in-law. It’s simply amazing.
Before that we would spend it with my side of the family. It’s a big family. Thanksgiving gets loud, and full. Which some people love & that’s great, but the husband and I prefer calm & quiet. Over at his moms we get exactly that. We sit in the living room and just chat while the kids play, no movies, no TV, just sitting together. When it’s time for dinner, we all sit around a table, chat, eat, and laugh. We end up discussing all the things we’re thankful for, happy for, and enjoying in life without any prompting. This society today is full of people who just aren’t thankful for anything. Even to be here, living. I want to instill into my children that gratitude is an amazing thing, and that we should always be thankful for what we have. I created a simple, fun Thankful List. Download it to use with your kiddos! Sit down, and write out things you’re thankful for.
Anything works! A child’s mind thinks differently than ours, let them be thankful for whatever they see as something to be thankful for, it will build their love for gratitude!
Also, you can use this for yourself! I will be using it for myself, too!
