What are you grateful for?
Who are you thankful for?
How have you been unexpectedly blessed?
When have you taken the opportunity to give to someone else?
Write these things on a name place card or use your scrapbook pages, scissors and hole punch to hand-make some gratitude cards then hang them on your Christmas tree beginning November 1. Another great idea is to place them in a photo holder or simply on the door/window trims around your home. Then at your Thanksgiving dinner pull them down and have family member(s) read them aloud. It is great way to stay focused in all the hustle and bustle of the season leading to Christmas.
