Several years ago, I was serving with the Young Women in our ward and we had a 30 day Gratitude Project. We made gratitude journals printed off on notecards and bound with an o-ring clasp. (see this post for the originals)
Every day for the month of November we would write one thing that we were grateful for. But then we would take it a step further. We would also choose one way to show our gratitude for that item. One of our girls chose to choose people instead of objects to be grateful for each month. For her this project became a month-long show of appreciation and service to those she cared about most. My family also participated in this project and it really made a difference as we were not only looking for things to be grateful for, but acting on that gratitude. We were a little bit kinder. Beloved toys were cared for a little more gently. Our home had a little bit more peace.
I kept the journals from my family, and we love to look back and remember.
This year, I decided to update those little journals and do it again.
If you would like to join my family in this Gratitude Project, feel free to follow the link and print off your own journals. They are formatted to be printed off on 4x6 unlined notecards.
Here is a sample of the cover, instructions, and daily page:
