We all know Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and share what we are thankful for. This thankful tree free printable is a great way to teach our kids gratitude. Bad attitudes and the gimmes can be overwhelming. It is our nature as humans to be selfish so tiny humans have a harder time with it.
Sometimes we forget that we are blessed in so many ways and Thanksgiving becomes mostly about a day off from school or work, about eating turkey or about the black Friday deals that have been progressively taking over Thanksgiving day. (sigh)
This Thanksgiving let’s take a moment to thank God for all that we have, just stop and think about where you came from, what you’ve been through and how blessed you really are. Also let’s pray for our troops that can’t come home to share a meal and laughter with their family, let’s say a prayer or share meal with those that can’t afford one or for some reason their family doesn’t get together for Thanksgiving.
