Yesterday, I posted about wanting to model thankfulness and gratitude for my children. Then, I felt guilty about that post, because today I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how much I want a couple things for myself. A different van would be so nice, one with the LATCH system and seat back tethers. Also, a nice, new camera would be so wonderful. Our camera is a little too slow to catch three fast moving boys. Many of my pictures are happy blurs instead of memories.
During this time of year when I want to think about being thankful and grateful for what I have, I find myself doing the same thing as my kids. I, too, am making my “I want” list. So, I suppose my first step in teaching my children about thanksgiving is to model it myself.
