Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I look forward to it all year long. What could be better than a good meal spent with good company, all while reflecting on the many ways that we are blessed? While we try to teach our children to be grateful throughout the entire year, it is awesome to be surrounded by other people who are more willing than usual to share about all of the good things they are thankful for in their own lives. This year, on the main wall in our dining room, we replaced some pictures of family and friends with a piece of string hung with mini clothespins on it. Leaves were available for those who were in our home to fill out and share with us what they are most grateful for this year. Many of our family and friends participated and it was good to see how God is working in other peoples lives, as well as our own.
Do you have any special Thanksgiving traditions you share with your family and friends? Take a moment to reflect on those and how they make you feel, then please leave a comment about the activity to give the rest of us some new ideas for our own Thanksgiving celebrations next year. Maybe you all be blessed immensely, not only during this holiday season, but the coming year as well!
