Children's Thanksgiving Activities | Intentional Mama by Ashlee Proffitt

Happy November!! I vote we spend this entire month finding ways to point all of our hearts, including our children, towards gratitude. Anyone with me?!

Our little family is so very blessed. So very blessed. And I am asking the Lord to help me see all those blessings, acknowledge them and thank God for them. And in so doing encourage and teach my littles to do the same.
