As I was sitting at the kitchen table--working on the very project I'm sharing on The Wood Connection's blog today--Ms. Lilly walked in. She saw my wooden leaves and my vinyl lettering that said, "Give Thanks," and asked, "What does that say?"
"Give thanks," I replied.
"What does that even mean?," she asked.
"It means you try to be thankful for the things in your life," I answered.
Lilly looked at me briefly and said, "Yea....I got nothin'."
Ha ha! TOTAL. MOM. FAIL. I know what I'll be doing this autumn/Thanksgiving season...teaching my seven-year-old about gratitude! In the meantime, go get crafty and check out my tutorial at http://www.thewoodconnectionblog.com/give-thanks-banner/! It's darling!
A big, "gratitude filled" THANK YOU to the Wood Connection for allowing me the opportunity to guest post! They have generously donated a $25 gift certificate to be given to one lucky "Mama Leisha" reader. (Who will "give thanks" upon winning! Ha!) To enter the giveaway:
