On Monday night, we had Family Home Evening, where we had a quick lesson about gratitude and what Thanksgiving is all about.
For the activity, we printed out several pages of leaves, colored them and wrote, or told Mommy & Daddy what to write, things we are grateful for. I gathered several sticks outside and taped the leaves to those sticks, and now we have a tree reminding us of how much we have to be grateful for.
I’ll be honest, I felt like the whole thing was a flop ending in tears and frustration because it didn’t go as planned, but K has asked several times about the tree, and each time I look at it, I am reminded about the many blessings I have in my life.
I am so blessed to have the beautiful boys I have, the loving husband who hugs and kisses me every day, the home we live in. We truly are so blessed!
Thank you Skip to My Lou & Everyday Mom Ideas for the inspiration!
