Thankful, yet again

I have said before that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.
Time to say Thank You to the One who blesses us.

When I was growing up, we would often receive packages from the States from our grandparents or other people and my mother was quite firm that we always wrote thank you notes.  When my children were little, I made sure that my children also always sent thank you cards whenever they received a gift.

I can remember grandma saying that if she sent a gift and the grandchild did not respond, she did not know if the children got the gift in the mail, or maybe they didn't really care.  She said she felt like not even sending a gift any more if they didn't appreciate it enough to send a thank you.

I think God likes to hear our "thank You's" too!

Thank You for the gift of music!
(isn't it funny how no one wants to sit on the front row at church?)

Thank you for fun family times!

My grandchildren are thankful for Nana's new phone so they can play games!

Thank You for healthy bodies! 

For fun bath times!

Thank You for the puppy store!

Thank You for Aunt Mindy who plays "house" or "Italian Noodles" restaurant with the grandkids.

Thankful for fun game times.

You have blessed us beyond measure, God.  May I have a grateful heart always.

In everything give thanks 
             for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
