Six Questions To Ask At Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is obviously about giving thanks and it's easy to sit down and say, "Ok, what are you MOST thankful for this year..."

But I thought I'd help get the thoughtful thankful juices flowing a bit more with a few of these questions that I found from around the inerwebs that maybe probe a little deeper (pst...there may be a free printable at the end!!!)

1.What act of kindness has made the greatest difference in your life this year?

2. What place do you feel most grateful for, and why?

3. What are you most grateful for that brings beauty to your daily life over the last year?

4. What challenging experience has ended up changing your life for the better this year?

5. Is there a personal limitation or flaw that you’ve come to appreciate this year?

6. What, from this year, do you feel most grateful for?

Also, I made a printable for you! You can print out several copies and use them as place settings, they would be very pretty printed on a deep olive green paper or an ivory!

My hope is that these questions will urge us all to think a little further and a little deeper into our lives from the past year, that we might look back and reflect on the ways that God has moved. It might even be fun to record the answers in a book and save them to look back on next year!

A new tradition? Perhaps!

If you download this and use it at Thanksgiving, would you post a picture on Instagram (@kayla_j_nelson) or Facebook (@theaccidentalnomadlifeblog) and tag me so I can see how you use it? I would love to see the creative ways these little cards get displayed!!!

Do you use a Thankful Tree instead of question cards? No problem! These little jems are just the right size to clothes pin to a tree. You can even trim them a little shorter and write on the back instead of under the question.

Another idea for when Thanksgiving is done is to bind them together into a book, or maybe staple them together each year and watch how the answers grow, or continue. You can also use them as bookmarks!

Are there questions that you ask every year at your Thanksgiving celebration?
