I have 3 kids under 9 years of age who still have class holiday parties.
So this week I’m bombarded with notes asking my children (me) to bring this, bake that or dress him like pilgrm or indian and then we have our own Thanksgiving week traditions like making small and easy gifts for our neighbors and community helpers plus our making a turkey and all the fixings…
You get the picture. My life is just a little bit overwhelming around this time of the year. Well, this year I told myself that I would focus on being more present during these festivities and not running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get all of the last minute things together. So if you can at all relate, just have a seat with a nice cup of tea and enjoy reading these 12 Grateful Quotes that will inspire you this Thanksgiving.
They will definitely get you in the thankful mood and help us ponder and hold on to those little moments in our heart a little longer this week. The following quotes are from our bloggers who participated in the 21 Days of Gratitude that I’ve coordinated for the past two years.
