Gratitude Jar

Pin It



I have seen many gratitude jars floating around on Pinterest and on others blogs lately.  After reading One Thousand Gifts and starting my journal, I thought this would be the perfect compliment to "Dare to Live Fully Right Where I Am" challenge to myself.

Now some of these gratitude jars that are floating around the web are pretty intricate.

You can make this Gratitude Jar FREE!  "What are you grateful for?  Get ready for Thanksgiving with a printable gratitude jar.  Simply print a label for your jar and fill it full of your family’s responses to a series of fun and unique gratitud
Saving Dollars and Sense

but I am a simple person.  So I chose a plain Jane mason jar.  No added decorations, no frills.  Just simple.  Simply grateful.
 

 

I will fill my gratitude jar with notes throughout the year of everything I am so thankful for and for the good things that happen.  Then, on New Year's Eve, I will read all my notes to remind myself of how wonderful 2013 has been.

 

Do you have a gratitude jar?  Do you decorate it or leave it plain.  I would love to hear about it.  Have a wonderful day and remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  1. What a wonderful idea Debbie. Seeing that we have emerged unscathed by floods and wind damage this weekend, I should do so as well.

  3. My blog is my version of a gratitude jar, but I really like the idea of a tangible jar of thanksgiving, and reading the papers at the end of the year.

  4. My daughter has done something like this with her girls, but I have not. Every Thanksgiving they take their list of things they are grateful for and add another paper leaf to a gratitude 'tree' that they hang on the wall.
