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 freemusicarchive.org.
