I’m jumping on the bandwagon and am hoping to be able to make a post every day this month.
Today, I’m thankful for the opportunity to teach my daughter to be thankful and giving. And don’t you think the pictures say it all??
Okay, so you’re wondering how silly pictures of her holding some money relates to being thankful and giving. Here’s the story. She got her money after taking the majority of her Halloween candy to an area dentist. They gave her $1/pound and they’ll be sending the candy overseas to the troops as part of Operation Gratitude. This gave us the opportunity to talk about doing nice things for soldiers, since their job is to protect us and they have to be far away from home and their families while they’re working. We also got to talk about not being greedy, because one little girl doesn’t need a huge bucket of candy, and being thankful for what we have.
