2010 Gratitude Challenge - November 24

For the month of November Our Homeschool Reviews will be participating in a Gratitude Challenge hosted by Brenda at Garden of Learning.  For each day, I'll post about something I am thankful for.

Today I am thankful for...Generosity!!  Today my daughter and I planted ourselves at a local grocery store for two hours ringing the Salvation Army bell.  I wasn't sure how it was going to go at first.  It only took her 15 minutes to ask for a chair (lucky I had our folding chairs in the car).  She was a trooper and rang that bell, the whole time saying, "Good Morning", "Hi", "Thank You", "Happy Thanksgiving", "Have a Good Day", and "May God Bless You."  If you were lucky, you were told all of the!  

I was amazed at the number of people who gave money into that little red bucket!  I would say that at least 70% of those who walked into the store gave something.  I was not expecting the number to be that high.  Maybe it had something to do with that adorable little girl in the over sized apron...maybe not.  It was just nice to share that holiday spirit with others and exchange smiles with strangers!


Our Village is a Little Different

The boys love putting money in the red bucket, and so do I! I'm glad that people were so generous.

I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
