  1. I love the idea of bringing a gift to the meal maker!! That’s a lot of hard work the person cooking goes through, even if it’s fun for them too!

  2. We don’t really have thanksgiving meals(celebrations) here but this year I’ve made a thanksgiving tree in the home and the kids are slowly filling it out weekly with their messages of gratitude on the leaves.

  3. Random acts of kindness are amazing. I remember being at Dunkin Donuts one day last year and the person in front of me paid for my order. It was the nicest thing!

  4. Up until about 6 years ago I used to get excited about holidays. I did not have a lot of family around me at the time so my mom would always do her best to make a good meal and we’d invite those we knew who needed a place to go. Now, I am closer to my family and never see them. However, hubs family is close and the situations with his family and then having to share time with his daughter since she has to spend half the day with her mom and the other half with her dad (hubs.) Holidays have become way too dramatic and stressful.

  5. Great ways to show your kids to be greatful as well. We will be doing some of these activities together as a family.

  6. I think listening to every story is something that is too often overlooked! It is a gift to the story teller and often a gift to the listener. Sometimes technology can keep us from listening with undivided attention, but this is a great reminder that it is truly a gift!

  7. What great ideas! I’m always the one making Thanksgiving dinner. I’d appreciate it if someone brought me a gift. LOL

  8. These are great ideas. I love giving back with my family. I also have my Girl Scout troop give meals for Thanksgiving.

  9. So glad that you’re focusing on Thanksgiving instead of glazing over! WE definitely have lots to thanksful for

  10. I always help my MIL clean up, and in her huge family, I’m always the only one. That never ceases to amaze me. Def. the one who does the cooking, should at least have help w/the cleaning!

  11. I love the idea of bringing a gift to the host! We usually all help bring food so the host doesn’t get overwhelmed!

  12. Bringing the meal maker a gift is an awesome idea! It takes A LOT of work to put together a Thanksgiving meal, and a little gift of appreciation would be such a lovely thought!

  13. I never attend any get together empty handed. I know the host has worked hard on some great food for everyone, so it’s only right to bring something to say thanks.

  14. I love the listening suggestion. So often we forget to listen. I think that this would make a big impact for people this holiday. Some days you just want to be heard – KWIM?

  15. Seeing I am the meal maker, I like the idea of bringing me a gift! Preferably one that would help making the meal a little easier, like a side or dessert 🙂
