Thanksgiving is just one week away and while it is the ideal opportunity to talk with and model to our grandchildren what it means to be thankful, a genuine heart filled with thankfulness is one which shows itself all year long.Linda Ransom Jacobs is one of our Grandmas with Heart. She is the founder of Divorce Care 4 Kids and she wrote the following; "Did you know children who show appreciation are overall happier and have better attitudes, because they feel better about themselves? So bring on the gratefulness." (You will be able to read an article Linda wrote about this at the following link.)
Whether the children you love have gone through the divorce of their parents, or not, helping them become people who show appreciation, people who are truly grateful and thankful, is about handing down confident faith, but it is also something we do to help them have a better and more fulfilling life.
So this Thanksgiving, be sure to talk about the many ways, big and small, God has blessed you. Give your grandchildren the opportunity to do the same. Then, sit down with them and think of ways they are able to show their thankfulness in the coming month. Maybe they could . . .
