Sometimes being thankful requires a bit of stillness. Just to be, to reflect and to watch. Our home moves and shakes just like the next. To practice thankfulness with our kids we have started to use dinner time as a time to be still and talk about what being thankful means. We thought the act of writing our thankful ideas together and hanging them from the light would make it more tangible for the beans.
Inspired by Alla and Mu-Hsien from their outstanding blog On The Same Page. Here is what we have set out on the table with our food. A basket filled with pinecones that are wrapped with string and a paper tag. And a pen for easy writing. It is a learning experience for me as well to take life a bit slower and to cherish the beauty of November.
