“What’s the magic word?”
Many of us moms regularly use that phrase to remind our small children to be kind and thankful. Beyond manners, what we are really trying to create is a heart of kindness and thankfulness.
Thankfulness is a habit of gratitude.
It is not circumstantial. If we are willing, we can always find reasons to be thankful.
This Thanksgiving week, practice the habit of gratitude by posting the many reasons you have to be thankful. Buy each family member a different colored package of sticky notes. Encourage each person to post notes around the house of things they are thankful for, and celebrate God’s goodness in your lives.
