Let's be Thankful

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." Epictetus

"If you can't be content with what you have received, be thankful for what you have escaped."
- Author Unknown

"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul." Rabbi Harold Kushner

I showed this picture to my kids and they were very impressed with this person's ingenuity. They immediately wanted to go out and make a pair for each of themselves. Is that all kids, or just homeschoolers? (or is it just my kids?!) On a separate note, found this site about tying your shoes in intricate and unique ways and the first thing I thought was "cool, homeschool!" They are sometimes a breed apart.

  1. This is so touching. I will be saving this to share with the kids during our resourcefulness unit. Thanks!
