I believed thankfulness needed to be taught. What better time to teach this attitude then at Thanksgiving. This week we invited some adult friends over that are special to our children. The children were all involved in planning a special dinner to honor them.

They made a banner, wrote thank you letters, wrote a song, helped clean the house, and prepared and served the food. The children had a great time planning and preparing, and they came up with good ideas to make our guests feel special. The evening ended up being a memory that they'll remember for a long time.

High on my list of what I'm thankful for are my beautiful children. Psalm 127:3-5a says, "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them."
