The poor little thing had a total of 8 thankful notes written in it…..how terrible is that! But its all about good intentions right… 🙂
As few thankful notes that there were in the jar, opening just those 8 with my husband was totally worth it! It was such a fun thing seeing what each other wrote….even if I only did 6 in total, all through January and he did just 2 towards the end of the year – it has still made me want to do it again this year!
The reason I want to do it again is because of how it ends – sitting there reading them together is completely what its about and seeing what each other wrote and what they were thankful for throughout the year. Even just 8 was enough to feel the joy of what this jar can bring and I’m grateful that we at least gave it a go!
Funny find though – the majority of mine were thankful for my husband for helping me around the house haha and he was thankful for me folding his clothes and help him live through man flu hahaha! So hilarious!
I think this time though I will make it where we just write things we are thankful for, grateful for or loving about each other. So thanks to the lovely Amberly from A Prioritized Marriage – I am totally going to do this wonderful idea again for 2015 and try and hit a PB on last years Thankful Jar!
