    I keep a small notebook by my bed and I write down three things I am thankful for each night before bed.
    I was telling my mom about it and she said she writes down five things each night that go with each of the senses.
    for example, start your page with:
    the best thing I tasted…
    the best thing I smelled…
    the best thing I touched….
    the best thing I heard….
    the best thing I saw ….
    She said that my little one giggling was the best thing she had heard, not only that day, but in a long time and it really made her think about the other things that she heard. It forces you to look at the good things and not the bad.
    I tried this and it really did make me reflect on my day as a whole and be thnakfull that I have all of my senses and to marvel at the experiences I have each and every day!

    Thank you Crystal!!! You always have perfect timing in your posts. I was just thinking about leaving Dh random encouragement notes; he has had a rough couple of months at his new unit. THANK YOU!!!

    I am often given one of those tear-away desk calendars for Christmas or other holidays. What I like to do is tear a page off each day, and write on the back 5 things I am grateful for. I have a small basket that I put the calendar page in, and once a year or so I go through and read about all of the precious moments in my life.

    It brings tears to my eyes!
