Thanks For Patience
We had a great Thanksgiving Feast this year. The children prepared baked macaroni and cheese, fruit salad, baked potatoes, turkey loaf, cranberry sauce, corn, and had ice cream for dessert. We made new tablecloths (although we didn't finish the napkins), little pilgrim hat place cards, candles and arranged mums in vases and pumpkins. I had planned for us to sing our Thanksgiving song before our meal but one of the older children said, "Let's hold hands and each say what we are thankful for." The list included the usual things: family, friends, food, love, etc. However, one child added that she was thankful for patience for her mom. Rather a sophisticated idea for a four year old! Patience is indeed a blessing.
