Being Thankful...

Every year at Thanksgiving we make a project together that shows how very much we have to be thankful for.  This year we took a canning jar, cut out a turkey to put on the front and filled the jar with paper feathers.  Each turkey feather has something written or drawn on it that represents something we are thankful for.  Our turkey jar is bursting with feathers and we will place it in the center our Thanksgiving table tomorrow to show how extremely blessed we are!  

Grace writing the many, many things in her life that she is thankful for.

Jack writing that he is thankful for our "world" on one of his feathers.

Eve writing on one of her thankful feathers.

"Being thankful opens us up to receiving all kinds of wonderful blessings.  When in a state of gratefulness, we acknowledge our true selves and radiate this energy to others."  ~Unknown~

Open to give; open to receive. It's a fulfilling life, generating kindness, compassion, generosity, decency, respect - for ourselves and for our fellowman. Learning these things at such an early age, they are staging the world with all that is good. Yay for Grace, Jack, Eve, and their parents who lead the way!

I bet that if they had one of those huge gallon size jars, these incredible children would take on the challenge and fill it to the brim with feathers. They are awesome.

Happy time of giving thanks. We give thanks for each of you, Rebecca, Rob, Eve, Grace, Jack, Mary Ann, Walter, and Joyce. Blessings to you! Our hearts swell with love for you.


Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
