Thanks for Thanksgiving

A few years ago, my mom purchased this book for our family. It has beautiful illustrations, and I love the poem inside even more.

Thanks for Thanksgiving was written by Julie Markes, and illustrated by Doris Barrette.  It's filled with all the fun things that make life worth living, and expresses gratitude for each.  Geared towards younger children, it is a wonderful reminder of why I love Thanksgiving.

I have so very much to be thankful for. I have been truly blessed by God.  I am grateful for my family.  I am grateful for the opportunity to build a new home.  I am grateful that we've been able to do so much in just one year.  When you take the time to count your blessings, it is wonderful to see all that God has done.  I've loved this little quote floating around Pinterest:

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you.  Thank you for reading, for your encouragement and kindness.
My treat to you, if you enter "THANKS2011" at check out in my Etsy shop, you'll get 20% off.
