The Gratitude Project 2011 - Day 20

Today is Sunday. I was so thankful that, after being out of children's church for the last two weeks, I was able to be with my regular kids and spend some time teaching them about thankfulness today. We talked about how to give thanks with our mouths. That means TELLING people how thankful we are!! And yay for me, that's what I've been doing all month, so this lesson was a great fit right now.

And tonight, I was thankful that we went to the church wide Thanksgiving feast! I was thankful for the opportunity to visit with some great people who I go to church with but don't always have the chance to see and talk to, because I am usually in the back with the kids. I am so very thankful for the friends I have at this church. Pretty much all of the churches I have ever been to, I have only had Sunday morning relationships with the people. We spoke politely on Sunday's, but then never talked again during the week. But this church is different. I love hanging out with these people during the week, on the weekends, at parties, and at eating times at church. These people are family - my family.

It was a great day! It was one for which I am very thankful.
