November is a special month to slow down and count your blessings.
This mindful process helps to make the month even more meaningful.
You can do these by yourself or with your family.
1. A family Gratitude sheet
This is a really great way to get everyone involved and focused on being thankful. By keeping this in a central location in your home everyone gets to share in the gratitude. Don’t forget your out of town guests, they can join in too! When the month is over, the paper goes into the memento keeper for the family scrap book.
A tablet of paper
Pen ( if you have little ones, they can use pictures instead of writing, in which case you will need glue)
2. A gratitude board is a more creative way to display what you are thankful for in picture form. You can choose to build on it as the month progresses or make it all at once. Plan to have it in a place
people can see it.
Cork board, dry erase board, poster board or anything else of that size
Pictures of all you are thankful for, could include bible verses or positive affirmations
Embellishments if desired
3. Your own private gratitude journal is a deep way to start your day. Giving thanks to God from the moment you wake up gets you off to a good start for the whole day. There is no wrong way to do this, go with whatever pops into your head.
In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson,“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
Wishing you abundant blessings,
Organize You Inside and Out
