A selfless elf like me always takes time to be grateful for all the blessings in his life. The holiday season is the perfect time to reflect upon all the things we are grateful for but sometimes overlook. A great way to better recognize our gratitudes is to collect them in a “gratitude keeper.” Set aside a mason jar, mug, small box, or anything you can find that can hold small strips of paper. Decorate it for the holiday season any way you wish. You can have each family member create his/her own, or you can make one to use as a family. Starting today and continuing for each day of December, write down one thing you are grateful for in your life on a small strip of paper. Then place your “gratitude” in the gratitude keeper. At the end of the month, share all your “gratitudes” with your family and/or friends. Take a moment to share today’s gratitudes on our facebook page or Instagram page so we can recognize your selflessness.
