Over the last year we tried to remember to scratch down little and big things that we were grateful for and stick them in an old pasta sauce jar labeled “Gratitude 2014”. On New Year’s Eve we took them all out and read them. Some were funny. Some drew us into silence. All of them made us remember how much happened in a year. How much we were given. How much there was to celebrate. And there was so much more…after we finished reading them all we kept thinking of things we forgot to add. It was just a meaningful experience and we enjoyed it so much, I decided to make a collage out of all our little scrappy gratitudes. And we started our new jar for all that 2015 holds!

  1. A co-worker gave me a “Blessings” jar for Christmas…I didn’t think much of it (maybe the frilly lace around the top turned me off)…now I want to dig it out and do what you guys did because the year-end collage makes me smile. (I think I’ll re-decorate the jar :-)).
