Even though it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the stores, I’m the kind of girl who likes to take one holiday at a time, so there won’t be any Christmas music or décor around here until after Thanksgiving. (Even if Michael Bublé does continue to stare at me through the cellophane wrapper covering his new Christmas CD case. I will not open it! Not yet.)Instead, I’m trying my hardest to remind myself & my kids that Thanksgiving is not just a day in November, it’s a way of life. 365 days a year. That was my goal when I came up with our Blessings Board last year. It’s been a reader favorite, & it’s one of my favorites as well.We have a lot to be thankful for right now and have been keeping our board filled for the past several weeks. I’ve even gotten more specific lately about what kinds of blessings I want the kids to think about & write down. The other day, for example, I told them to think of some blessings to write down that are intangible, & I explained to the younger ones that this means “things you can’t touch.”As they began calling out & writing down their blessings that cannot be touched, our youngest, Lola, yelled out “I know! Mom’s curtains!”. So, of course, I wrote it down. After all, I am thankful for them.So, what’s on your Blessings Board?
