About the 1st of November, I always put a large piece of paper and tie a pen on the refrigerator with the words, “Thank you God for” at the top. Family members are encouraged to regularly write down something they are thankful for. This has been a tradition for many years in our home. We enjoy writing our own and reading what the rest of the family has written.
Writing down your blessings can really change your outlook. As the old hymn by Johnson Oatman says, “Count your many blessings; name them one by one; and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.”
