A Thankful Project..

WOW – Times’A’Flying!!
But what do you associate the month with..?
A Month Of Reflection
& Thankfulness?!
A Challenging Month Of Self Purpose?!
OrSimply Thanksgiving Day..?
& “Gobble Gobble “ Yum!?
But more so for the Turkey? Or for little reasons that could validate and create
purpose for your day? I’ve tried to make the month of November
leading up to Thanksgiving about simply “Giving Thanks”
Challenging myself and my family to get more in tuned
with our family, friends, and our community.
It’s a beautiful season to give back in many little selfless
and amazing countless ways, and I’m challenging YOU to
give a little of yourself to YOU &  Others this month..
HOW..?!Rather Simple
Endure these 10 challenges to having a
fruitful & giving month leading up to Thanksgiving.
{Please DO Get The WHOLE Family Involved, ESP The Little Ones If Possible}
In NO particular order, get yourself and your family to
complete this list of TEN countless and amazing ways
to a thankful month of November!! Blog about as MANY
as you can and link them all month long..
-----  ----- -------- ---- ------- -----
Thankful for moments
Write out a list of things YOU are personally wishing for. Find a day, pick
one and complete them the best way you can. Finding time for self
spirituality and awareness to be thankful for who you work so hard to be
I very important. YOU count, be thankful for the beautiful YOU,
you spend so much time sharing with other’s..

Thankful Memories
Create a fun photo record of what you are thankful for with your family.
Spend an evening clipping pictures and create an album of thanks. Blog
about it or simply write memories alongside and leave it within
your family room for everyday thankful memories..

Thankful for family
Spend sometime writing a fun thankful note to each person within your
family, secretly leave it in places to surprise them. (Add an extra treat to a
lunchbox with a note and a photo with love from you, go out of your way
to make your child’s day extra special for NO reason at all, celebrate a
weekday for the hell of it – it’s Thursday, we have LOVE and each
other – bake a cake! Catch a movie, sit around, play games, sing songs,
spend a little special time creating a fun filled day for the kids just
because, or snag one kid at a time for a fun date with just
you two spending special moments together)

Give It Away With Smiles.
Give to the homeless and hungry …Give away something from the
heart, some gloves, extra scarves, some seasonal clothes that fit no longer.
Do you really need all that food? Especially ones in your pantry you know
you are certain to not touch for months… Can drive it away to your local
shelter.. Are you really going to eat ALL of the leftover turkey?
Create sandwiches and pass them out at the local shelter.

Teachers hold such important and prestige jobs in aiding our children
for HOURS each day with their future. We forget how much impact that
makes on our little ones and can take that selfless job for granted.
Create a special thankful note with your little ones. Let them express a
few fun facts they LOVE about their teacher, or a special moment that
impacted them during their time within that classroom. Send it along
with some cookies, or something special and thoughtfully
put together from YOU and your little one.

That Special Someone
Find a moment this month to create a spectacular memory with your
partner. Do something adventurous, read a book together, go for a walk and
capture some photo’s of you two trailing away in smiles, cook a fun dinner
IN for you two without the kids, catch a flick together, meet for lunch, stop in
as a surprise to take them to lunch, hand make something sweet or if time
doesn’t allow for it, send them something memorable and
lovely to receive either at work or at home in the mail)

Thankful for Faith
Share the basis of your road to success story with your faith, little struggles of late
or strenght. Share your personal faith focal points with your friends.
Take a moment to give back to yourself by reflecting on The many
iimportant things that sum up your faith, and how much you
have grown or need to grow within the month.

Thoughtful Warming Gestures
Invite somebody without family to join you for a home cooked DINNER, OR
to your Thanksgiving dinner. It’s sometimes very hard to pin point signs of
loneliness, but when you listen and focus, you’ll eventually hear lots of
hidden things friends, family and even co-workers or people within your
community spill out through conversation. Pick a friend who needs
a little pick-me-up and spend some time showing YOU care..

Be Grateful With "The Leasts"
Have a minimalistic Thanksgiving dinner (no waste).
Give away something special you prepared for your dinner, OR Check
and make sure everyone is well satisfied, and wrap up everything else
nicely for a friend, Shelter, or homeless friends within your community.

Thankful Traditions
Start a new family tradition. Create a thankful pumpkin to last ALL
November long, have your friends and family leave a thankful note when
they visit, or write out notes in moments within your family to each person
as you are reminded of reasons you are thankful for them and share
within the month. Invent your own Thanksgiving family prayer.

Thoughtfully Giving Back
Share the love and volunteer.. Sponsor a child in need. Spend some time
volunteering your time serving or helping out at the local shelter as a family.
Leave your neighbor a thankful note and a little jar of something sweet.
Raking out front? Indulge the kids in raking a neighbors front walkway or
volunteering to help fix something needed. Surprise a friend by stopping
over and leaving a gift or note or something simple and special just
because on their door step and drive off before being seen. Show your
love in creative ways to those who needed to show how thankful
and thoughtful you are of them…
Easy enough..? Who is up for the task with me..?
Remember, do as MANY as you can! It's ok if you cannot afford
the time to complete each one, most importantly, make sure to
spend this month giving a little of yourself in ways to show how
thankful you are for your friends, family and the loving
support you recieve from them all year round!
