Not Alone Series: Thankful

Linking up with Jen at Jumping in Puddles and Morgan at Follow and Believe for this extra "grate{ful}" edition of Not Alone Series!

In what ways are you thankful?! Write about anything you want under this theme. Do you have any family traditions that help you to be mindful of the blessings in your life?

Yesterday I posted my list of some things I'm thankful for. Today I'll share some traditions from my family. First, though, will you join me in a moment of prayer for the city of Ferguson and our nation? Jesus, please comfort those who mourn and bring peace to those who are angry, and help us find a solution that is a win for everyone and brings glory to You. 

Traditions: my family likes to go around the table and say something they are thankful for - I know, how cheesy and sentimental and awesome, all at the same time. We also will play a game after the meal: dominoes, hand & foot, UNO, etc.

My family is pretty fantastic, and I am so thankful for them!


  1. Do you ever play the "special" editions of Uno? My parents love Uno (as do I), but Uno Attack, etc. got to be a bit much.

  2. YES! My family definitely had the machine of death that was the Uno Attack version. My sisters and I played it all the time! :)

  3. LOL at "machine of death." My grandma did not like it. She kept trying to smack the cards back into the machine!

  4. Hehe! That's so funny about your grandma! I don't think I ever played Uno Attack with my grandma - that would have been too much for her, lol!
