  1. You totally just inspired me! We have a dry erase board in our front entry way. Each week I write a character word and its definition on it for my boys to read as they walk in (honesty, integrity, reliable, trustworthy, etc.) I think for the month of November every time we (or anyone) walk in the front door we will write one thing we are grateful for. At the end of the month we will have a whole board full of gratitude.

    And I’m with you on no Christmas decorations or music until after Thanksgiving!!

  2. I love this, Victoria! We must have been on the same wavelength, I wrote a post on giving thanks just a few days ago, and I totally agree with you. Just like you say, the God does not call us to give thanks only one month, but all the time and in all things!
    Thanks for the suggestions, I really like the idea of putting them in a jar and looking at your thanks at the end of the month. Another great book on thanksgiving is One Thousand Gifts by Ann VosKamp. I have been reading though it as a part of my devotions and it has totally changed the way I look at giving thanks!

  3. I’m going to try and do this in my daily planner, since I’m writing in there anyways! Great post! I always look forward to reading your blog!
