A fun dinner activity will be to go around the table and have each person share something for which he/she is grateful, one for each Thanksgiving mint. This helps us remember why we are having this big dinner and also keeps the dinner conversation centered on positive thoughts.
This time of year we are encouraged to think about all we have and remember to give thanks, but what about the rest of the year? When I take the time to list the many blessings I have, big and small, it is truly overwhelming. My goal is to nurture an attitude of gratitude that carries through the whole year. Even in the face of adversity there is something good to be appreciated.
