Grateful

I believe in everyday gratitude. I read the book, The Secret, a little over a year ago now. In the book, it tells you how to live a grateful life. Last year, I asked my family to list 10 things they were grateful for and it was difficult for them. I gave them each the book for Christmas to try to help them open up to the idea of everyday gratitude. Here is a layout that I created for Scrap Addict and OLW.


Journaling reads: I am so grateful that I was able to spend the day with my kids at the pumpkin patch. We had a very lovely day!
I created the paper pieced pumpkins that I used as accents.
Today I am grateful for...
Jonathan (Happy 4th birthday!)
Francis and Maria
scrapping time
jammie time with the kids
mac 'n cheese
hot chocolate
crisp cool air
progress on the property
my mom and tim having a great vacation in Europe
the kids enjoying Ian's birthday party the other night
Knowing that I am extremely happy in my marriage
Knowing that soon we will be in our house
hearing how much Clara's teachers enjoy her
seeing how much the kids love going to school everyday
Cheryl
Tanya and Jimmy moving home!!! Yeah!
Mom C. for watching the kids this morning while I get my hair done
Jenny's party tomorrow
love
sleep
porches (I am a porch person!)
You
