Happy Thanksgiving

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Although we didn’t get to spend Thanksgiving with our bigger families, we still gathered around the table and had a wonderful meal.  I began the dinner by telling the boys that I was thankful for having them and their daddy, for the roof over our heads, the food on our table, for our dog and cat.

I asked them what they were thankful for and I got the cutest responses, and although I wasn’t sure that they totally knew what it meant to be thankful, I wanted to start this tradition.  One of them was thankful for his fork and for the television  lol.  The other was thankful for marshmallows, his turkey, and his fire truck.

I hope that you and your families had a safe, happy and healthy Thanksgiving.   There is always something to be thankful for, no matter how big or small.

    It’s so cute to hear what kids are thankful for. Marshmallows must be popular-they were on my son’s list too!

    LOL Well you have to be thankful for that fork or else you’d have to eat with your hands! lol

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. We had a pretty nice Thanksgiving. I’m trying to teach my youngest that just because we should be thankful everyday, not just when we eat turkey.

  6. Laurie,
    I’m glad you had a nice holiday!
    We played The Beatles Rock Band on Wii and had a great time.

    Funny. We’ve never tried that before, sharing “thanks” with the family. I like that idea.
