A Season of Gratitude

Wow, it’s November 1st. Crazy, right?  We’re entering the season of giving thanks, and I think it’s only appropriate to start it off right!  Admittedly, Monica and I have been running around like chickens with their heads cut off (that is a terrible visual),  but we have SO much to be thankful for, so I’m making it my goal to not let November go by without displaying gratitude. Yup, I’m adding it to my list of things I want to be intentional about! (Read more about that here, here and here.)

Maybe I’ll consider adding a little Thanksgiving decor to my home:

Or make a sweet treat with my kids

Or start a new tradition.

Have each family member write what they’re thankful for on a piece of paper and wrap it in a crescent roll. Open them at dinner and guess who said which thing.

Cut out leaves from scrapbook paper and write words of gratitude on them. Punch holes in them and hang them on twine and display.

But whatever I decide to do, I’m going to do it whole-heartedly and with a spirit of gratitude.  Want to join me?

    I’m definitely thankful for my family and friends right now. I’m a nursing student and I’m constantly stressed. My family and friends are so supportive and patient with me right now.

    I was just feeling down because I couldn’t go to a Halloween party with my friends but I got a chance to reflect for a second. Thank you for posting this post.
