Thankful Calendar

I love this time of year! Ok, not the dark mornings and evenings and cooler temps, but I love the heart focused attention to being thankful.  I love to focus my attention and the attention of our girls from "I want, I want" to "Thank You, dear Lord."

One way we do this is by having a Thankful calendar. Below are the pictures of ours this year. Each day of the month has a pocket. Inside each pocket is a slip of paper where we will write down 30 things we are thankful for.

My 6 year old daughter talks about it the calendar all day long as she thinks and plans out what she'll write down tomorrow. She has down her family and sunrise/sunsets so far.

It is also lots of fun to write down things that our 2 year old is thankful for. Yesterday was ice cream and this morning was vitamins (the gummy kind).

I love it!

I love to hear from my readers so if you are thinking something that is beneficial and profitable (which doesn't mean you have to agree with me, but at least be nice), then I'd love to hear from you!
