Thank you,

Don't Forget to Say Thank You!!

The last day of the year brings an opportunity for reflection for blessings received and quick printable thank you notes for the kiddos too.

Everyday when my hubby and I start the day off in prayer, I always begin the same way:
"Dear Lord, we thank you for all the blessings that we have received, both those we understand and those that we have yet to understand.  Let everything we say and do be for Your glory and not our own, in Jesus name, Amen."   
Many times we find it difficult to understand why our Lord gives us the blessings that He does.  Sometimes they are joyful, bold and beautiful like the birth of a child or the marriage of a friend, but many times they are masquerading as crosses for us to bear such as chronic illness, loss of a loved one, or even the daily trials of trying to make ends meet.  As Christians we MUST come to know, trust in, and surrender our wills and our lives to our heavenly Father.  We may at times be tempted to want to give back these hidden blessings because they really don't seem like gifts to us.  But God in His wisdom always gives us what is best for us.

As we greet a new year, I urge you to push forward through the next 365 days with a small step each day toward heaven.  When you think you can't go on or can't make it or things seem too hard - just try a little bit more.  "Just a little bit more" was the message my pastor spoke about on the Feast of the Holy Family.  When you think you can't tolerate it anymore, be patient with them or yourself any longer, be kind to someone, follow through on your word, go without it, or take another moment of pain and agony - try just a little bit more.  Little steps will bring us closer to God, big leaps will make us fall into sin. 

With 2011 in front of us, let's vow to take a daily step together and be thankful for our blessings - whatever they may be.  We would like to thank all of the people who have shown us kindness and support in our online ministry this past year in prayer, word, deed, and donations of time, talents, energy, resources or financial support!!

We ask for your continued support over the next year as the Lord has some really crazy, but really cool things He has in mind for us all.  We are so excited as we will be launching a brand new version of our website very shortly which will make finding resources easier and faster and will compatible with more browser apps.  We will be giving more interactive support to homeschoolers on a regular basis, and of course, sharing tons of resources (and in some really cool and innovative new ways.) So, please please keep us in your prayers and we will continue to pray for you, our supporters, with our family rosary on the last day of each month.

With all this talk of thanks, perhaps you are thinking of those you need to thank or of someone that your children need to drop a little thank you note to?  Then why not download these little thank you notes sent along from Michelle over at  Thinking Love, No Twaddle?  There are two pages per file with two notes per page.  Simply print out, cut in half, write a sentiment, slip in an envelope and pop in the mail. Michelle has been a busy little bee and has lots of neat little resources to share with us including some beautiful notebooking page sets, a new lesson worksheet set, and more planning pages --yippee!!  Make sure to visit us often so you don't miss a thing.  Thanks, Michelle!!  You are so wonderful and generous. :)
