gratitude, day 1…

I have so very many things in my life to be grateful for.  I try to make it a point to express gratitude to those around me…but I’m sure I fall short & don’t thank others enough.  This is something that’s been on my mind lately, both because of the reflective nature of the season, and also because of some words I listened to a few weeks ago, during general conference

President Monson reminded us that “gratitude is a divine principle.”   He said:

A grateful heart …

comes through expressing gratitude to our Heavenly Father for His blessings

and to those around us for all that they bring into our lives.

This month, I thought it would be both appropriate and good for me to spend some time reflecting on the things I am so very grateful for…of course there are many more than 30 things I am grateful for, but I’m hoping to record, in no particular order, a simple gratitude each day during the month of November.  When I’m done, I’m hoping to print off my gratitude cards, bind them together, and put them somewhere I can see them often – and be reminded of how truly blessed I am.



  1. I've been wanting to do a grateful post for every day of this month, too-- but I haven't quite gotten it together yet. I have two and half more hours-- maybe if I hustle, I can start!

  2. Love this idea, Wendy!!!I'm sharing on my blog and FB right now!~
    Did you find a cute overlay for the GRATITUDE words or are you just putting it on in PS? So cute and I love the finished product!

  3. Where can I get this Grateful overlay
