DEC 20: What are you grateful for?

For the first time, my family has been marking the days of Advent with a calendar of little activities. We’ve been making gifts and baking cookies and drinking cocoa. But today- by far- turned out to be my most favorite day of Advent.

Today, my little note in the calendar asked, “What are you grateful for?”

I sat down at the breakfast table with a four year old and a two year old and a sheet of paper (not quite sure what they would say!) 

Here's what they came up with:

I am humbled.  And full of love.

And on that note, I’ll be unplugging for the next week. I don’t want to miss a minute of the love and magic in the air!

So, I send warm wishes for a happy holiday- from my family to yours.

What a lovely idea to make your own advent calendar. I just read your article for kidoinfo-also an inspiring reminder to make space for the good stuff! Thanks, Margaret
