Thankful with a Turkey Twist

As American Thanksgiving is approaching, it is time to think about all the reasons to be thankful. Melody Beattie could have not said it better:

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

This week Sara is challenging us to make Thanksgiving or Thank you project which must have a turkey somewhere on it

To inspire you, here's Sara's project:
