What Are You Thankful For?

Every November we like to write out the things we're thankful for.

This year we started early!  Some time in April, I found a little blank book and used it to start writing down things we were thankful for.

We're currently on number 1085!

And yes, we do read Ann Voscamp!

Still, we wanted to something as a visible reminder of gratitude as we near Thanksgiving.  Usually our book is tucked away on the children's altar in the chapel.

This year we decided to make a paper chain.  Each link is something we are thankful for: from parents to video games, and, as it grows this month, we'll hang it around the living room, reminding us that gratitude is the key to joy!
