Every year we go to my parent's for Thanksgiving. It is my favorite holiday. There are no presents, no pressure to find just the right thing - we're just getting together and hopefully finding time to reflect on how blessed we are.
We started this small tradition of having out a journal that each of the kids can write or draw in - to express what they are grateful for. I love seeing each of their writing and looking at their art and I can't help but wonder if the book will make it though to when the kids are in college. Will we still be writing in it? I'm not sure...but I'm bringing it anyway and hoping that the kids are into it AND this year I'm gong to get the grown-ups to join in. My grandmother is 96 this year...I wonder what she is thankful for?
What are your traditions? Have you thought of starting any?
