Don't be a turkey, just say THANKS!

Don't be a turkey, just say THANKS!

Bringing up grateful and thankful children in an entitled world has its challenges, CONSTANT challenges.  A child with a grateful attitude doesn't come naturally. Kindness, caring, sharing, and thankfulness are all skills we each need to learn.  I don't want to teach them these skills just so they have good behavior, I want them to value the importance and the real meaning behind each of these words! 

We are thankful for all of the people in our lives that model these characteristics on a day to day basis! We are thankful for the church. We are thankful for grace.

Since it's Thanksgiving, we just had to dress the girls up in their matching outfits and have a little photo shoot! We also had to ask them what they were thankful for. . . kids are funny! See their responses below!

I am thankful for nothing! I don’t like anything!
— Lydia Beth, 2
I am thankful for love and my parents!
— Ella Grace, 4
I am Thankful for my family, turkey, and my hair.
— Addelynn Joy, 6
So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
— Philippians 2:1-4
