As we approach the month of Thanksgiving, it’s nice to reflect on the things we can be thankful for! Sometimes, the busyness of life can stop us from slowing down and choosing gratitude. That’s why we thought it was super important to highlight 10 reasons for your family to be thankful.
Consistency and routine are often things that can be taken for granted among families. You don’t realize how important a consistent schedule is until it’s gone. Even just a day outside of your routine can leave things feeling chaotic. That’s why it’s important to be thankful for consistent routines!
Joyful moments are what keep smiles on faces and hearts warm! It’s important to recognize when your family is in a joyful moment. When it happens, savor every part of it. Soak it up and choose gratitude for the sweet, joyful moments you share together.
As important as joy is to a family, so is grace! Grace for the moments when we’re not at our best and need a little bit of extra forgiveness. Be thankful for those times because they are what draw us closer together and allow us to feel loved, even in the midst of our imperfections.
In a hustle and bustle world, rest is something that is often overlooked. As a family, choose to rest together. Unplug and be intentional with one another. It’s in rest that you’re able to find restoration and refreshment together. In the midst of busyness, be thankful for the ability to slow down and rest!
Where would any of us be without the overwhelming, never-ending love of God? Showing gratitude for God’s love within your family is an awesome way to honor our Heavenly Father. His love for us is constant, never changing, and something we should be grateful for every single day!
