make it pop

Is there a more important task than cultivating a grateful heart?  When we learn to recognize the smallest blessings, we’re able to truly appreciate the people and moments that make our lives special.

November inspires reflection on the multitude of gifts in our lives, and gratitude lists seem to be pop pop popping up on all sorts of social media.  These lists are wonderful, but I think it’s important that we remember to actually give thanks for our blessings.

Today I wrote gratitude letters to a few people who consistently make my life more positive.  To make the project a little more fun, I put the letters inside confetti poppers.  That said, make it pop!
“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” — Elizabeth Gilbert

  1. I love this. Gratefulness is definitely something that we need to incorporate in everyday life!! That sign in the header image almost made me tear up… I felt the same way when my mum was cleared. I wanted to shout from the rooftops! Thanks for giving us some food for thought hon xx

  2. In the age of digital correspondence, I absolutely love the handwritten notes. It conveys a personal touch that shows you really care. I think you bring up a very good point. We can all state our thanks through gratitude lists. But, it is quite a different thing to actually show our thanks, something you have done quite well with this awesome project! Thanks for sharing 😉

  3. I love those gratitude poppers! I did send out thankful handwritten notes one year in our Christmas cards. I thanked them for all that they do and for the amazing person they are. It went over really well. I think people need to hand write more notes these days. I always hand write a note for my husband to read along with his lunch. He keeps them all and it makes us feel connected when he is at work. 🙂

  4. Aw this is a cute idea! Always love a good handwritten note. Sometimes I pop over to the humor section of the greeting cards and find one I like:)

    Love the sign in the first pic though. I imagined doing a little fist bump when I read that.
