30 days of gratitude

I apologize if you may have already seen this on my blog...

I got this great printable from Jessica Sprague.
I've always wanted to do things like this but it usually
gets put on the back burner and never executed.
I've decided that it's time to actually do what I want
rather than to just think/dream about doing it.

I don't have big chunks of time anymore so
it did take me parts of three days to actually get it all completed,
but I'm SOOO happy that I actually did complete it.
We started naming things that we were thankful for on the 1st of Nov.
And we'll continue till the 30th....and hopefully beyond that.

Please don't mind the cluttered fridge!

We have five people in our family,
so each person gets their own number...
Greg is 1, I am 2, Naomi is 3, Micah is 4 and Hannah is 5.
It's fun to see what each person comes up with for the day.
Naomi has been all about nature...she also said,
flowers, and fruit trees for two other days.
Micah is all about Mickey Mouse and TV related things,
(not sure if he really gets what we're doing yet).
And it's fun to think up what little Hannah might be thankful for!

How do you share your thankfulness with your family?


  1. What a lovely idea! We don't spend enough time being thankful for our blessings. This really brings it to the forefront.

  2. That is very nice. I like it! Thanks for sharing.

    I think I can make a version of it for my own home. :)

  3. What a wonderful idea!

    We share our thankfulness wihtin our family by writing our thanks on little pieces of paper, then folding them and mixing them all in a vase on the Thanksgiving table. Then we take turns drawing one out and reading it out loud. Its fun to hear someone else reading aloud what you are thankful for! We then guess who wrote it.

  4. What a grate idea I will have to try it when my kids get a bit older.

  5. Live the idea! I've also been doing te 25 days of thanks over at http://mallardcovemommy.blogspot.com. It's never to late to start. Everyone should check it out!

  6. What a great idea to get your entire family involved in being thankful! (I love the picture of the fridge, we have the same leapster farm on ours, as well).

    I would love to invite anyone who is interested to join in my "25 days of Thanks" challenge I am hosting: http://mallardcovemommy.blogspot.com/p/25-days-of-thanks.html

    Check it out and link up if you get a chance! It's never too late to be thankful for something.
