Hey Kids and Kids at heart!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner then we get to countdown to Christmas, my most favorite time of year. Be looking for new Christmas stories every week until that special day arrives!

I’m super excited for Thanksgiving even though it will look different this year. Our family gatherings might be smaller and we might have to play with brothers and sisters instead of cousins or special friends, but the reason we celebrate Thanksgiving will never change.

In episode 17 we met Miss Michelle Medlock Adams who wrote the book “I Will Not Be Afraid.” If you didn’t hear that story go back and listen.

Miss Michelle is an award winning author who has written over 100 books! She loves children and animals and Stubby and Miss Robin love her books!

In todays’ episode “What is Thanksgiving,” we learn that Thanksgiving is so much more than good food, parades and close family. It’s about being thankful.

Are there things you are thankful for?

Miss Robin is thankful for her family. Her husband Keith who she has been married to for over 42 years. Her grown up children, Chrystal, Jaime and DJ. Her son-in-laws, Eric & Bryan and her five wonderful grandchildren. Our grandsons, Micah, Ezekiel, Urijah, and Oakland and our sweet granddaughter Emerson.

You can actually hear them say goodbye at the end of this podcast.

I’m also thankful for my home, for work, for friends who check up on me and for my five wonderful sisters. Ruthie, Kathy, Carol and Patty. 

If you would like to buy this book or any of Miss Michelle’s other wonderful children’s stories you can find them on Amazon or on her website at www.michellemedlockadams.com. 

Now, onto what we’ve been waiting for, our featured story.

  So now it’s your turn, kids. Pause the podcast and discuss the questions with someone you love and trust

  1. What do you like best about Thanksgiving?
  2. Name three things or more that you are thankful for?
  3. What is something you can do to show someone you are thankful for them? I like to send notes in the mail or draw a picture for my grandchildren.
  4. Make a special card for someone you love today and say thank you for what they do for you.

It’s been so much fun bringing you these wonderful stories from different authors.  I hope you’ve been enjoying them as much as I have had reading them to you? 

Miss Robin is thankful that you have invited me into your home. I feel like we are family. 

So, from your Auntie Robin and Stubby the Cat, We’d like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! If you haven’t met Stubby the Cat he’d like to meet you. Go back to Episodes 1- 11 and you will hear all about how different he is and how thankful he has become.

As always, your loved ones can find Miss Robin in lots of places. On Instagram, Facebook and again at my special place www.robinmarie.org.

Can’t wait to hear from you.

I praise you God because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

PSALM 139: 14-16
