happy thanksgiving

Two very cute hand crafted turkeys arrived into our home this week! One from kindercare and one from school.

Lilah teacher at kindercare was telling me that as she went around the circle and asked each child what they were thankful for, each of the children said they were thankful for candy or chocolate, but not our Lilah! Lilah told Sharon that she's thankful when her Baba reads her a story. It just about melted my heart.

Then on Friday, after supper, we were talking about Thanksgiving and what it meant. I went on to tell Lilah the top five things I was most thankful for, she then pitched in her top five too. Here they are...

1. Mama
2. Baba
3. God
4. Lots of money (her words!) ...for our house, car, food, clothes...
5. My books and toys

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert
