A couple of years ago, when I was feeling low, I kept a gratitude journal for a few months. It was a really neat experience, and I suggest it to all. I also, for years, have kept a gratitude jar in the kitchen. When something lovely happens during the year, I write it on a note and put it in the jar. We read them out loud, and then tape them into a book as a New Year’s Eve tradition. Although most of the notes are my own, it helps remind our family of all the good things that have happened in the previous year.

I have many things that I’m thankful for. One especially is that my good friend Brita has survived her battle with cancer.

I used my iPhone for the videos, an app called Videoshop to compile it all, and the song is called The Wonder, by Dave Depper on

  1. Short, sweet and to the point. I loved this gentle reminder of how much richer our lives become when we remember to focus daily on our many blessings [someehing I’ve consciously practiced for a few years, myself].
