Watch for it Wednesday #33!!

Hearts of Thankfulness
Our family has a very meaningful
and memorable tradition that
we follow every November and I
wanted to share it with all of you.

Every November I brighten our home
with festive harvest decorations and
we focus on the character quality of

I created a special container that I leave on
our kitchen table for the whole month. In
front of "Our Thankfulness" canister I
leave a pile of colorful notecards that I
made out of bazzill paper with inked edges!

Anytime that a member of our family or
any visitor to our home desires, they have
a wonderful opportunity to write down
a few things that they are thankful for. On
Thanksgiving Day, all of the precious notes
are read and our family is dearly blessed
to see all that we have and all that we are
grateful for. It brings the true meaning of
Thanksgiving to light and helps us to
appreciate all that we have been blessed with.

You can use a variety of containers to create a
thankfulness box. I chose to use a Quaker Oats
oatmeal container. I just decorated it with festive
paper and a few beautiful CottageCutz harvest
dies. My family and I have a lovely place to share
our love and gratitude for many years to come!
