I wanted to share two ways I promote being thankful as the focus of Thanksgiving!
In my family we have the thankful turkey which gets personalized messages from each family member. It serves as a great reminder and our family dinner centerpiece!
You can purchase at Bed, Bath and Beyond if you want to add to your family traditions.
We also start a month long tradition of writing a thankful message for each day of the month and put on our Give Thanks tree.
This is a great family activity that you can discuss on a daily basis and add to the tree. It also kicks off a feeling of gratitude before the chaos of December’s holidays!
Whatever tradition you do with your family, we hope you find those special moments to be thankful as we are. We at PEC are thankful for all of you and wish you Happy Thanksgiving!
