gratitude


Family home evening was pretty typical...Kenzie was tired and cried through most of it. But I was excited regardless- I made a special little gratitude box out of our honey roasted peanuts can-

Kenzie was grateful for puppies. I was grateful for Chay's sense of humor and Chay was grateful for my yummy breaded parmesan chicken I made tonight...of course he would say that. What do you know...I feel kind of grateful! I am going to appreciate this new little tradition. good night.

Cute April!

Last year our family did a thankful chain all through Novemeber, but it got so large we had nowhere to put it...this is a much better solution!

Good idea! I was just thinking of starting a similar tradition the first FHE of November. I like your jar... cute, cute!

April I like your gratitude jar. You are so clever. I love you and I am grateful for you.

We love our gratitude jar, it has worked out much better than the thankful chain. Thanks April!

I was typing out each day what I was thankful for, but, then like most things, I let it slip. Do you think this would work with dad? Maybe I will introduce it to him on Sunday

We are grateful for kind and talented parents like you who bless us with such wonderful grand children. We are so "non-tecky" that we can't imagine doing a blog with all the demands of your busy day. We are truly blessed. Grma & Grpa Clark
