As we approach Thanksgiving, I am reflecting on all of the ways that God blesses us. One of the many ways is through a meal shared with family. It’s one of the few times we’re all together doing the same thing.
Now, this doesn’t mean there is always a home cooked meal where we pass the potatoes. We have “whatever” night in our house a lot of times which might mean somebody’s having cereal for dinner 🙂
Regardless of the meal, we are still blessed and this prayer is just a little reminder…
Bless the food before us,
the family beside us,
the love between us

I had planned to create a printable to hang on the wall or make a sign, but then I saw this lazy susan that had been in my bathroom. I originally bought it to use under my bathroom counter as a way of organizing all the junk that somehow ends up there. I tried it for a while, but it just went from junk under the sink, to junk on top of a lazy susan, under the sink!
I decided to just use it for what it was meant for.
I started by painting it black so the underneath layer would be darker when it was distressed and then I painted it white.
The design was created in Photoshop. The border for the design was found at We Lived Happily Ever After. This blog has so many gorgeous graphics…check it out!!

Once it was dry, I used carbon paper to transfer the words from my printable to the wood.
I traced each letter with the carbon paper underneath. This is such an easy way to transfer wording to wood. If you don’t have carbon paper, you can rub with a pencil on the back of the paper before you trace onto the wood.
Once I had all the words traced, I painted them in with a black paint pen. I really liked using the paint pen…it felt more like writing than painting!
I love how it turned out and it’s functional too…now we can just spin the potatoes (or the cereal)! 🙂
I hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving!
