What are you thankful for?
I know a bunch of people really love to do the daily post on facebook, twitter, google+ and their blogs about the things they are thankful for.
Hey, I am that girl!!
I am thankful for my time alone with God in the mornings.
It refreshes me and starts my day off on the right foot.
Thank you God for our precious time together!
Then I feel bad on weekends or busy days when I missed posting.
So my next post is more like this:
Thankful that this little cutie is in my life to keep me smiling!!
She is so precious and has the most giving heart.
This weekend she made cookies and dinner for our neighbor who is doing poorly health wise and her husband so he would not have to cook just for himself. This girl is a blessing from God, not just to me, but to everyone who has the pleasure of meeting her. She is a great inspiration to her big sister and a great role model for her little sister. This girl is going to be a fabulous wife and mother one day!!
What a lucky mommy I am!!
I love these posts, I just always feel I am not posting what I may want to really post because of confidentiality in some situations…sometimes for the giver…sometimes for the receiver…sometimes because the actions mean more when they are done anonymously.
This year I decided to try something new.
Hey we changed October traditions, why not November too?
So here is what I am trying.
Instead of posting to the world what I am thankful for,
I am writing to my family.
Every day they get a new reason why I am thankful for them.
Each kiddo (and Dad) has their own reason.
Each one is unique for each past day and what that person did.
Like Rebecca taught Belle how to braid hair the other day.
How cool is that??
So I wrote it down and left it on the sideboard for her to see.
Then when they have read them I am putting them in a “blessing box”.
On thanks giving we can go over them or maybe I will just save them till next year and see how our blessings have changed.
I think I will even start putting a special blessing from me to each of them randomly out there through out the month.
I think this will be a special family tradition.
I am excited to see how this plays out!
Do you have any special family traditions that have meant much to your heart?
I just love things like that!!
I would love to hear them!!
I want to start new more meaningful and personal type traditions with my family, that they can in turn use with theirs as they begin to have their own.
A family legacy…worth more than gold.
Have a blessed day friend!
