So at my house, I have worked to create an atmosphere of thankfulness. We have a pretty cool Thanksgiving calendar we hang each year. And each day we try to talk about things we are thankful for. Here are some highlights of Honeygirl's thankful list this year:
*I'm thankful for Aunt Mary because she gives me candy!
*I'm thankful for chocolate pancakes at IHOP.
And some of her precious, way to grown-up comments on Thanksgiving Day:
*I'm thankful we live in a place where we are allowed to go to church
*I'm thankful we have enough money to live in our house every day.
The list of what I am thankful for is long. A few highlights for me: a job (that I enjoy even!), that I don't have to go to work every day, a fabulous husband, two healthy girls, both sides of our family close by, a wonderful house, super friends, facebook to keep in touch with friends far away, cell phones to stay connected to the world, rain to keep our area beautiful, blue skies, sunny days, a God that loves me beyond belief. And so much more.
I am ever so grateful for all I have been blessed with.
