This time of year, with the weather changing and the holidays swiftly approaching our minds begin to think about being thankful. Yes, in all things there is something to be thankful for. The trick is to get beyond our personal thoughts and look at life a bit different. Why was it that the red light took a bit longer to change?? Well, it could have been that if it had been any sooner a terrible wreck may have been in our future. So perhaps we should think about life as in terms that there is a reason for all and a reason to be thankful for all as well.
At our house we like to make thankful turkeys. We have did this many different ways from using a pattern. you can find some great ones at these links.

You could also make turkeys the old fashioned way of taking construction paper and having each member trace their own hand. the gobble is easy to make and sometimes it is funny to see exactly how everyone makes their own. The best thing is writing on the feathers things that they are thankful for. It may make some take some time and think and others will know exactly what to write. Either way everyone will see that in life there are things to be thankful for.
Have fun and enjoy being thankful
