Paragraph of the week:
Thank You Note
We have been blessed with many special gifts and talents. Perhaps it is the ability to sing or play a musical instrument. Perhaps it is athletic ability or the ability to be compassionate and kind. Think of the special gifts or talents that you possess. On the back of this paper make a list or create a web brainstorming these gifts. Next to each, give a reason why you are grateful for it.
