What Faith is Thankful For

As a child who has a feeding tube, Faith doesn't really have reason to look forward to a big Thanksgiving dinner. Throw in the fact that she has not been feeling well this past week and woke up yesterday morning crying and gagging on mucous, she didn't have much of a Thanksgiving.

So for her Thanksgiving celebration,  I told her that we could make a list of things she is thankful for and she was happy doing just that. She also had me help her write little letters to her friends and family saying things like, "Thank you for coming to church" or "Thank you for letting me come visit you."

It was really sweet and she came up with about 20 people she wanted to write letters for. I think this says a lot - that she is simply thankful for the people in her life.

Thankfully, she feels much better today.

Here is her list for things she is thankful for: 

Faith doesn't miss Wheel even
when we'ere on vacation!
  • Mommy and Daddy
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Big hugs and kisses
  • Having a sleepover with her grandma (we haven't actually done this yet but she is obviously looking forward to it!) 
  • Baby Allie - her doll she's had since she was a baby
  • Yogurt and chocolate
  • Bedtime with Elmo DVD
  • Going to church
  • Watching her PBS shows
  • Her bed with her pink cupcake sheets

I think making her list is going to be the start of a great Thanksgiving tradition! To see my list of things I have been especially thankful for this year, click HERE.
