Create a Scrapbook

Everyday we have so much to be thankful for. our family, our health, our home, our loved ones. Creating a scrapbook is one way in which we can display our deepest thoughts and our truest feelings. Whether in prose or poetry, each family member can put words to paper without having to say it aloud.

The kids may be thankful for a variety of things. Could be their iPods or some other inanimate object, it doesn’t matter what it is or how corny it may seem. What matters is that it’s written down, it’ been noted.

It’s usually Thanksgiving when family members announce what they are thankful for but I think we should be thankful everyday for every good gift we experience daily. Don’t wait till November to let others know their kindness, gifts and love have made you happy. It can be viewed over and over again throughout the year.

As you read the scrapbook as the years go by, you may find the words have additional meaning especially where the kids are concerned. As they grow, things which were important to them the year before no longer hold meaning; and thus they may begin to articulate the true meaning of family, brotherhood, and sisterhood and reflect those feelings in their words of thanks. As adults we, too, may find a change in our thought process especially as we grow older.

Giving thanks in writing and placing it in a family scrapbook is the best gift we can give to our family and each other. Words which may have never been spoken before now ring out with truth and love.
