I love the holiday season. The feelings they stir up inside and the crispness that swirls through the air. I love the excuse to celebrate and give thanks for all that I have. Not that I need an excuse, but gratitude always shows up around Thanksgiving. Now that my boys are growing bigger, I want to start a new tradition. I want to sit around the fire with my sweet little family and take turns expressing our thanks. My little guys [four and almost three] are old enough to take part. I want to instill in them a lasting gratitude and what a better time to start than at Thanksgiving.
I'll go first...
I am grateful that my husband is alive.
That he was not seriously hurt in his motorcycle accident.
And that my family of four is whole.
For this I am thankful.
What are you thankful for?
