30 Days of Thanks: Day 1.
My friend Regina mentioned something she's doing with her boys this year that struck a chord with me -- instead of focusing on the old, played-out Pilgrims/Indians bits of Thanksgiving later this month, every day she's making them pick something they're thankful for. It seems like a much more tangible, meaningful way for little kids to learn about gratitude and contentment than, well, stuff like this.
So: today, I'm thankful that I live in a town where I bump into random ridiculousness like this on an almost daily basis.
