Thanksgiving is almost upon us and I wanted to stress the importance of thankfulness. As an adult it is even hard for me to stop at times and remember how blessed I am. I get so caught up in all I have to do that I neglect all the wonderful blessings in my life. We read the story "Gus the Pilgrim Turkey". Gus runs away so that he will not be used for a Thanksgiving feast and eventually finds sanctuary with some Penguins. He is thankful that he was not eaten. While the story may be silly it reminds us to be thankful. We all discussed what we are thankful for and colored a picture explaining what we are thankful for.
