We always end our meal by going around the circle and saying what we are thankful for, but we completely forgot this time as the meal was very casual outside and different families had to leave at different times. We ended the day with a bonfire and that's when we remembered the most important part - the thankful part!! We read from Psalm 103 and then went around the circle at the fire saying what we were thankful for.
Here are a few of the things that came up:
- that Opa could be with us this year again!
- for provisions of work and transitions that went smoothly
- for good times with extended family
- for a great start to a new school year
-for hard times that teach us important lessons and draw us closer to God.
