#shareitsaturday / giving thanks & a giveaway

Books, music, people, things that inspire me – sent to you!


Today is November 1st and lots of people use this entire month to focus on getting back into the habit of giving thanks. I had a teacher in high school that gave an assignment of starting class each day writing in our Gratitude Journal – list 5 things we are grateful for.

When life throws you curve balls and things don’t go as expected – when people disappoint you, it is super tempting to throw yourself a pity party and feel sorry for yourself. Can I get an amen?

When I become thankful and show gratitude, my perspective is immediately lifted.

A friend gave me this beautiful tool that encourages conversations of gratitude around the dinner table:
