Photo of the Month:
Gratitude Jar 2014
I wish I could take credit for this idea, but it is not mine. See the photo above .... starting on the first of the year, or whenever you read this, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper. Above, they suggest surprise gifts, accomplished goals, good memories or the appreciating the beauty of nature. Then, at the end of the year, maybe on New Year's Eve, read and re-visit all of the wonderful things that happened in 2014. (Yes, the photo is from last year!)
It doesn't have to be a jar and doesn't have to be fancy. It could be box or file folder. For me, I need to see it to remember to do it, but if that isn't you, a file on your computer would work too! I am putting mine in a prominent place where I will see it every day, near my grocery list!
Jan. 3 - A good friend took the boys and I out to dinner. I tried sea bass for the first time and now have a new favorite!
Feb. 2 - My neighbor brought me a unexpected, tasty homemade meal!
Keep it Simple!
PS - Yes! It really is my 99th post! : )
