The Gratitude Wall

Thanksgiving is approaching. I took out a few Thanksgiving decorations this morning and was reminded of our yearly tradition of having a gratitude wall. I have a curved wall in my kitchen which is sort of a focal point. Every year I buy a few packages of Post It notes and leave them with a pen on a counter near the wall. The intent is that each person writes down something he or she is grateful for and then sticks it on the wall. There is no limit to the number of things you can write, just one per note though. It is fun to see what people write and touching to see how quickly the wall fills up. Thanksgiving guests love the idea and every year the wall seems to get filled. It's amazing how many things we all write down once we get started. We love Thanksgiving around here. :)
