Keeping gratitude at the forefront of your mind is so important.
Recently, one of the couples with whom I work shared the story of how they created a paper Gratitude Turkey with their young children in preparation for Thanksgiving. Each day leading up to Thanksgiving, this couple and their children add paper feathers to their family paper turkey and each feather has something written on it for which the adult or child is grateful. It is displayed prominently in their home as the holiday approaches.
What a great way to keep gratitude at the forefront of all of their minds!
