i’m thankful for…

by @according2kelly on November 20, 2007

with all the hustle & bustle surrounding holidays, sometimes it easy to forget what we are celebrating. although, the name thanksgiving pretty much says it all, i think it’s important to remember that besides eating lots & lots of good food, spending time with our families & watching football, we should be giving thanks for all that we have & expressing our gratitude.

that’s why this year my family is starting a new tradition (although they don’t know it yet & i’m sure the announcement will be met with lots of groans). i’m planning on passing out these little “i’m thankful for…” cards before we sit down to eat & ask everyone to fill them out. then later on, while we are sitting ’round the table we will take turns reading them aloud. hopefully (but not really likely), everyone will take me seriously & participate. if not? oh well, at least i tried… i’d like to start this season of gratitude off by thanking paper source for this fun idea.

I am doing the same thing with my fam on Turkey Day! Love Paper Source. And THANK YOU for the recipe links (I had found most of the recipes before you made it all nice and in one post). Can't wait to try them.AND fun tradition to leave somewhere with your fam for Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for you- you inspire me with all your ideas, fun things you do, recipes, prjects, and for just being you.
