November is a time of reflection, to show thanks and love to those around us. A simple way to encourage children to show gratitude is through a Gratitude Journal. When my kids were young, they wrote about events they were thankful for in their journals every day. This encouraged writing, profound thinking, and helped them to be aware of the small things around us to be thankful for. I held on to those journals even many years later, until now. What are you thankful for this year? Take some time for yourself to sit back and consider things that positively affect you, things that make you grateful for who you are and what you have.

From the SpiderSmart family to your family,

Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for

being part of our extended family.
