The Thankful Heart

What is better to read the week of Thanksgiving than a book about "thanks-giving"?!The Thankful Heart by Richard and Linda Eyre is about a Thanksgiving tradition that they started and have improved upon.

One Thanksgiving Linda got out a roll of calculator paper and the whole family listed items that they were thankful for. The next year they managed to list over 600 items.

It makes you stop and think. Obviously things like "freedom" and "parents" were listed, but the kids expanded it to items like "doorknobs". And when it comes down to it, doorknobs are important...how would one open a door without one? 

The point is that we need to become more thankful. Not once a year, but daily. This book lists each month and gives us a thought to ponder and a challenge to do.  Because often gratitude has to be deliberate, and it can change our whole outlook (as well as those around us).
This is a beautiful book. The layout is wonderful, the pictures are spectacular, and the quotes fit in perfectly throughout. 

This is a book that should be on the coffee table or bedstand as a daily, beautiful reminder of all we have to be thankful for.
