Gratitude and thankfulness is something Robert and I want to instill in Collin and Emma from the get go. It's so interesting watching our human nature and our tendency to be selfish and ungrateful even from such a young age. This is something we certainly need to learn and grow deep in our hearts.
Last year we decided to write down something everyday in November that we're thankful for. That was quite fun. Some days were pretty superficial and other days were deeper. But I believe everything, whether surface level or deep, is good to be thankful for...and we need to be thankful for it all. Plus, it will be fun later in life to pull out those pieces of paper and see what we were thankful for over the years and remember where we were in life at that particular point.
But, I want that gratitude and thankfulness to go farther than just November...for my kids and myself. So, what are some things you do to slow yourself down and be thankful for everyday, no matter what?
