I’m joining Tammy from Creative K Kids, to bring you a 4 part series this month on what we are Thankful for. I try all year long to show gratitude in my daily life, but the month of November with our thoughts turned to Thanksgiving, it’s nice to look a little deeper, and share a little more.  Feel free to link up your thankful posts, or share with me in the comments what you are thankful for.

One of my fondest memories of this season, is sitting around with my Dad as we peeled and de-seeded a Pomegranate. We only got a few during this season, as a special treat, and if we wanted to enjoy the goodness inside, we had to help with the work of getting the fruit. It was always a fun time, that brought us closer as a family. 
I am so grateful for my Dad and the simple lessons he taught us using a Pomegranate.  
– We have to work hard before we get a reward
– Some things are worth waiting all year for. Even if it’s just a small taste we get. 
– Family togetherness is important.
I am grateful for smart, dedicated people, who have learned how to simplify a task, making it a little less hard. Recently a couple of my friends shared this video, on how to de-seed a pomegranate with a wooden spoon. After giving it a go, I’m here to tell you, it actually works! It is so much better than the water method (which I never could get to work well).  
Now you may think that I’m taking away from teaching my kids with this new method, but I’m not. They aren’t big fans of this delicious fruit – too bad for them, great for me – and the faster method means I don’t waste as much with my finger picking, seed mushing way. 
To put it simply, today I am grateful for Memories, Dads, Smart People, and a bowl full of Pomegranate seeds waiting in my fridge for me.

  1. That video cracks me up- he's so giddy about his trick! I love pomegranates, and I've managed to get Evie to enjoy them too, so I will have to try that very soon. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Dear Adelina, Good memories are the best gift a parent can ever give. This is a wonderful lesson learned from your Dad and sweet way in which it is taught. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  3. My daughter loves pomegranates I always thought it was because she likes the myth of Persephone. Can't wait to teach her your spoon trick. Love how this simple fruit taught you so much.
