I am very thankful for my family and friends this year! Also, for having a job that impacts the lives of children in a positive way.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter!
I just love Little Page Turners adaptation of the wedding keepsake tree found on Style Unveiled! She added the word "thankful" to the top of the page and created a wonderful keepsake for children and parents! Their little fingerprints will be treasured for years to come. Children should sign and date their creations! As a mom, I can tell you that this would be hanging on the wall somewhere in my house if my children had done this in elementary school!
