Thanksgiving Day Gift

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." -Melody Beattie

Writing down what we are thankful for each day, each month or each year is a clear visualization of how much better life can really be if you concentrate on what we have instead of what we need.
This Thanksgiving add a 'Gratitude Journal' to each place setting. You can purchase a notebook at any stationary or office supply store. Add your own unique touch to it. Here are some ideas:
  • Wrap several strands of raffia around the width of the notebook, add a leaf or small card with the guest's name on it.
  • Copy the quote from above and make a bookmark to be placed inside the journal
  • Purchase a fall colored double sided satin ribbon and tie a big bow around the notebook and glue an acorn or leaf in the center of the bow.

However you decide to decorate it, the Gratitude Journal makes for a wonderful parting gift for your Thanksgiving guests.
