I'll start. I've been trying to incorporate gratitude into everything that I do with the kids, especially at night prayertime. Each night I ask them to tell me what they are thankful for. Sometimes its snowflakes, Lego and gum. Other times its friends, family and love. The three year olds are especially cute about it! I'm hoping that if my kids are more gracious, maybe they'll feel less entitled to things they haven't earned? Any thoughts?
Idk if I did anything I don't do normally to incorporate gratitude, but I know I was really proud of Courtney for thinking of others. I was hit very hard by the tragedy in Connecticut, but I really didn't talk too much about it with the kids. We started off our afternoon with a prayer when I felt they had the wrong attitude about some stuff. Courtney made sure to pray for the families, which since we hadn't talked about it in several days at all from what little we did talk I was surprised, but happy about.
