Thanksgiving is a great reminder for us to practice gratitude. It’s also a way for us to remember our history.
Do you know that thankfulness is a habit – something you must practice and make a regular part of your day?
For us, we practice thankfulness each night in our family prayers.
For others, it’s at a family meal.
If you don’t have a daily routine of practicing gratitude, it’s never too late to start. And, the good news, is it directly correlates to your feelings of joyfulness.
Here are books to share with your children that talk about thankfulness, the history of Thanksgiving, plus some funny stories as well. Enjoy.
