My Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! It's hard to believe that this year is almost over! I guess it's true what they say about time going by faster the older you get :)  Without a doubt thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all (besides my birthday). Why you ask? It's my favorite first of all because of all we have to be thankful for and secondly for all the wonderful traditions I have.  Here are my favorite Thanksgiving Traditions: 
Thankful cards. I got this idea from an older lady at my church. When I was a teen she sent me a card right before Thanksgiving telling me how thankful she was that I was active in church. Totally made my day that someone was thankful for ME! Since then I have tried to carry on this tradition every year. since by sending notes to various people I'm thankful for. The past few years I have made my own cards and sent them out. Here's a picture of this years card. In case you are wondering, that's a embossed pumpkin on the front cover.
 I am also thankful for our annual Thanksgiving Eve service at church. Our church has a service on the night before Thanksgiving to help us turn our hearts toward the Lord and thank Him for all he's done for us. It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of this holiday season. Then right after the service we have a church wide potluck dinner. I enjoy the pot luck because I get to hang out and thank God for my wonderful church family.

What are you favorite Thanksgiving traditions that help make the season one to remember? 

I hope all you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Love to all!
