The Thankful Fours...

We were blessed this year to be able to spend Thanksgiving with some of our favorite people. Lots of kids, lots of food, lots of fun. Chaotic but blessed. My younger sister is a librarian and she brought a cool activity that she does at her library with the kids... cut-out 4's that we all got to write the things we were thankful for on. I loved it.

It got us all thinking about the things - big and small - that we were thankful for. The more I wrote the more I realized just HOW MUCH we have to be thankful for...

Mommy worked with Meron to get her thoughts down and I got to work with Mebrate.

Both the girls said "JESUS" as one of the first things they were thankful for. I LOVE LOVE LOVE their hearts. When I pressed Mebrate for more things she was thankful for she said:

"More Jesus..."
I love it. Me too Mebrate, me too!

The girls loved the exercise... I think we all did. It helped keep us focused on the right stuff.

Thanks Aunt Wendy for a super cool activity and one we'll keep doing every year (and hopefully giving thanks every DAY)...
