My mom has a Thanksgiving tradition. Without fail, she’d corner us:
Name the three things you are most thankful for this year.
Of course when we were kids we were thankful for the kitten, that we had the day off from school, and that Mommy made mashed potatoes.
As puberty hit, we were thankful for our BFFs, our hiked-up hair, and that they finally got us call-waiting.
As we got older we were too moody to participate, but deep down we were always still thinking about it.
Now we do it privately, no need for any announcements. I’m up early and thinking about my three thankful things as I prepare the festive meal to share with those I love. And I’d like to share my mom’s tradition with you. What are you most thankful for this year? Give it some thought as you enjoy your Thanksgiving traditions. 🙂
