Being Thankful

We should be thankful throughout the year, but with the Thanksgiving holiday this week, we get a friendly reminder. I am not always as thankful as I should be. My kids definitely are not. They don't grasp the concept of truly being in need. Most of us reading this don't. Thankfully.

So this week, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am going to take a break from my computer and try to use every opportunity I can to show the kids how to be truly thankful. There is always something to be thankful for - no matter what. I love this quote I found on Pinterest (not sure of its origin) - so true.

I am off this week to be with my family. To eat turkey and abnormally large portions of everything else offered at the feast. To have leftover apple pie for breakfast. To watch football. To be thankful. And to try to teach them how to be thankful too.

Happy Thanksgiving! Be back next week with some fun things to share!
