I did make an attempt during November at helping my kid think about gratitude by making a tree trunk out of brown paper and hanging it on the fridge. I bought a bunch of colorful leaves (thank you, Utah Idaho Supply. Best school supplies and cute bulletin board things anywhere!) for the kids and us to write on. We hung up leaves on our fridge all month stating the things we were grateful for. I was happy it worked out nicely and sure brought the fall colors inside.
In closing this post of thanksgiving, I am going to post something I am deeply grateful for, and that is poetry. I discovered a poem written 60 or so years ago by a man named Jack Gilbert, and I love it. I'm grateful for his words, and for his stubborn joy.
