28 Days of Thanks for Dads

28 Days of Thanks for Dads


As dads, we have a lot to be thankful for. We have been blessed with wonderful kids to love, guide, spend time with, and have a lot of fun in the process. Many of us get to share this amazing and rewarding responsibility with our wives as well.

“Many of us will gather with family on Thanksgiving later this month and share in the many blessings God has given us. We all have so much to be thankful for, yet sometimes we take things and people for granted. This November we are going to count our blessings with 28 Days of Thanks for Dads. Below we’ve listed 28 ideas of things you can be thankful for to help you get started. Tweet and post as many as you’d like and you will be entered to win a $25 Starbucks Gift Card. Make sure to use the #28DaysOfThanks tag! The winner will be chosen on November 25th, 2013.
