Today I am starting a Thank You Journal because I want to find a deeper level of compassion for myself and others. I also want to instill it in my son as well. Therefore he is also getting a journal. Being thankful can bring about a level of gratitude towards life that I think can easily be forgotten or dismissed daily. In the daily grind of work, kids, school, and everyday life situations one can become overwhelmed. Remembering the simple things in life can help to remind us that sometimes, those simple things are all that really matter. Love from family, and friends are those simple things for me. I thank the universe for that. Here are our Thank You Journals. The third is for my sister.
