thanking our way through Lent




Thinking about the lead up to Easter
what does it mean
to me
to our family
how do we want to celebrate Easter

I have been writing my thankyou's in my visual journey for a few years now
I covered some Moleskins and talked to the kids about easter
about all good things
about the giver
I suggested they keep their own book
writing down those good things
how many could they get down
a way of remembering
noticing
the Giver

With such enthusiasm have they taken on their thankyou books
each day leading up to easter we note down
the countless ways
He loves us

Oh I love this idea. We have been talking about doing this as a family for a couple of weeks. This has inspired me to get started. I love that "mum and dad" score 10 on one entry and "snakes" on the next day get the number 10 spot.
