Personally, I have been working very hard over the past few years at practicing gratitude. After reading Ann Voskamp’s 1,000 Gifts I have been taking time to notice all of the beautiful gifts in my life. I now keep a Gratitude Journal and have done a few Gratitude Projects to thank those who are important to me.
Despite practicing gratitude in my own life, I am not sure that I am very good about helping my kids to recognize all they they have to be grateful for. I often model gratitude but we don’t have any concrete practices in place This list was great and we have already implemented a few of the 15 suggestions. We now have a family gratitude journal, a basket of note cards and “stickys” all over our window. I can honestly tell you that it has already made a difference.
