Gratitude jar

We moved house just over 3 years ago and I decided to get a big jar to be our gratitude jar.

So we’d write on a post-it what we were feeling grateful for and then stuck it in the jar.

Naturally, there was a surge of enthusiasm for it, however, it died off and then we stopped adding to it and dust settled.

Today, I was having a sort out and decided to empty the jar and have a read through. Before I got more than 4 or 5 notes in, I was already choked and I realised just how important sharing gratitude and feeling grateful is.

Everyone is out at the moment, so I’ve stuck a selection of the notes on a piece of board and put it in the family room as a surprise for when everyone returns.

If we count what we have already and are simply grateful for that, then life is amazing and peaceful.
