Thanksgiving Time Capsule

I am taking the whole write down what you're grateful for to another level...muahaha  This is a Thanksgiving tradition I know my kids will LOVE. They get to bury the thankful jar and then dig it up the next year. It will be fun to read what we were thankful when we dig up the Thanksgiving Capsule next year. I am going to let the family know what the jar is for and let them know what time we will be burying it. I will give them a good chunk of time to do it in that way some real pondering can be done and no one will feel rushed.

Choose an airtight container that won't decay over the course of a year. Also find a way to mark the spot where your time capsule is buried. I just used scarp booking paper that had a white backing so it will be easier to see what you wrote. That's it, pretty simple and straight forward!

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John F. Kennedy 

Life is crazy and hectic and it's so important to make time for gratitude. I don't have everything I want but I do have everything I need and for that I count myself very blessed. I hope this Thanksgiving we will all take some time to really ponder on what we are truly grateful for and let those feelings flood our hearts.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

In the spirit of gratitude I say thank you to anyone who has visited my blog and shown support in anyway.  This blog is really an extension of me and I love to interact with you all and hope you enjoy your visits here. THANK YOU for all the kindness you have shown me :)
