Don’t Let The Turkey Hijack Your Thanksgiving | 172

It’s Thanksgiving week, and if you’ve spent any time listening to our conversations or hanging out with us over the last few years, you know that THANKSGIVING and gratitude are huge topics of conversations around here. Since David began his lengthy study on the subject, he’s found creative ways to tie just about every conversation we have to gratitude in some way. We tease him about it all the time, but the truth is that we’ve learned a TON from him on this and we’ve all grown because of it. I guess you could say he’s put things together for all of us to pass on wisdom like we discussed last week. 
This week, though, I am excited to let him share with you and your children a little more about the foundations of Thanksgiving and how that factors in to the way we’ll celebrate together later this week. We want to make sure that none of us allow the turkey to hijack our thanksgiving!
