Happy Thanksgiving!

" As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them"
John F. Kennedy
I found this wonderful old book on Etsy, and fell in love with the artwork by Helen Sewell. Parts of it remind me of Matisse in a way. I really enjoyed reading this with my children. After an over the top Willy Wonka party for my now 6 year old, and Christmas on the way, I try to remind them to be thankful as much as I can, not just on Thanksgiving, but every day.
And I remind myself, too...
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
