such a pleasant and simple thing

I found my perfect jar today! So my gratitude jar 2015 project is underway! Have you started your jar? It’s such a simple thing to jot down things you are grateful for throughout the year, or note funny little moments, milestones, tranquil moments, beauty of nature,accomplishments,blessings. I can’t wait to read everything with my family next New Year’s Eve!

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
~Henry Ward Beecher


‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.
~ Joseph Brackett 1848
