Last week one of our readers shared with us a picture of their “Tree of Thanks.”
This week one of readers submitted a link to story about “Jar of Thanks” where Thanksgiving guests can write their gratitudes on a piece of paper. The notes are put in a jar and read at dinner. One of the commenters added that her mother gathers the notes and puts them into a scrapbook to remember the occasion.
What’s your Thanksgiving ritual? What are you grateful for? Share it here on our community gratitude journal, open to all who’d like to express their thanks or share a happy thought.
