My kids and I started journaling. It’s just with a duo-tang with lined papers inside. We call it “Thankful Journal”. Every night (at least we try), I help the kids write down things they are thankful for. I am pleasantly surprised how much they are into it. Somedays, I am dog tired and I honestly hope I can skip it. I go to their bedroom to hoping to say a quick ‘good-night’. There they sit in their beds writing things down, drawing pictures about their thankfulness. They look at me with a look of anticipation, “mom, I’m ready to pray”. WOW. I try to teach them something, but they often teach me so much more. How wonderful to go to sleep with hearts filled with thankfulness.
