In follow up to yesterday's post on family tradition I'd like to share with you our new Thanksgiving tradition!
A few years back my hubby and I joined my friend and her family for Thanksgiving. During dinner everyone went around the table and said what they were thankful for in their lives.
It was a real special moment with some laughs, tears and some silence. I knew I wanted to include this in my holidays. We did a few years of this tradition but decided to change it a little this year.
The THANKSGIVING JOURNAL.
On the first page we wrote where dinner was and who was attending, then everyone wrote what they were thankful for.
After dinner when we were sitting around eating dessert my husband read through them (I think next year we'll take turns reading through them though). Sometimes writing it down you can say what you really want to. It was special.
We plan to add to it every year and maybe even add a picture for each year!
What are traditions your have for Thanksgiving?
