today we made family gratitue banners in class. the banners have pockets for each family member, plus one for friends and extended family, and one for the universe. each time someone thinks of something they are grateful for, they can jot it down and stick it in the appropriate pocket. this serves us in many ways- we can visit the banner and look in our pocket to read all the ways we inspire gratitude in our family members AND we can reread all of our previously written notes of gratitude to remind ourselves how full our lives are and how much we have to be grateful for…
I don’t think we need to tell you how to sew this one. It’s definitely open for creative interpretation. You can get super fancy-la-fance or you can keep it super simple. Either way, the gratitudes expressed on a regular basis will totally transform your household.
thanks to the amazing and always inspired bernadette for introducing this to us. i’m grateful to have you in my life, bern!!!!
