Hi friends! Did you know being thankful is good for your health? Thinking about what you’re grateful for every day can help you be happier, more hopeful, and have more interest in school and hobbies.
This time of year people think a lot more about giving thanks because a certain holiday is coming up. You guessed it — Thanksgiving!
Many families have Thanksgiving traditions of sharing what they’re thankful for at dinner. They take turns until everyone at the table has shared what they’re most thankful for. Maybe it’s a person in their life, or an event that happened to them, or a thing that was given to them. It can be anything.
Whether your family already shares what they’re thankful for or you want to start a tradition, I have something to get you started! Print out this picture, and fill in the blank with what you’re thankful for. Bring it to Thanksgiving dinner to share.
I already know what mine will say. This year, I’m most thankful for… YOU! You are so important and loved, and I’m glad you’re here to share stories and adventures with.
Let’s practice thankfulness all year. Get a notebook, some paper, or a notes app to use as a journal. Add your turkey picture to the front of your journal as your first entry. Then, every day, write down at least one thing you’re grateful for.
