When our children were teens, we drove to my parent’s home for Thanksgiving--a one hour drive. My wife suggested we each say one thing we were thankful for, and keep rotating until we ran out of ideas.
Would you believe it? An hour later we pulled into my parent’s driveway--still going strong. It was an overwhelming spiritual experience for us all. It’s amazing how many things we could think of that we might ordinarily have taken for granted. It was so encouraging to listen to the hearts of my wife and children.
It's not often that a family gets to experience transcendence together. But we did! And it became an important family story.
Why not give it a try? You could share thanks in your car, of course, or in your family room or after dinner while still at the table.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
