For Family Home Evening on Monday, we each filled out a list of 100 things we were grateful for. I was trying for some shock value, and thought the kids would freak out at the idea of 100 things, but they said, "OK, and started writing. I had to stop them. "Wait!" I said. "There are categories!"
We really only had to think of 10 things in each category.
I got the idea at the Red Headed Hostess, though I changed several of the categories. Here are the ones we used:
1. Things (Items) you are thankful for
2. People you are thankfrul for
3. Things people have made that you are thankful for
*This was hard to explain, but I meant books, movies, songs, art...stuff like that
4. Memories you are thankful for, distilled into a word or two
5. Things about yourself that you are thankful for
6. People who have gone before you that you are thankful for
7. Things you have a testimony of that you are thankful for (things you know)
8. Things that have happened this week that you are thankful for
9. Things about today that you are thankful for
10. Things about your family that you are thankful for
The Red Headed Hostess has a very cute paper you can print out for your 100 things.
I had thought of sharing some of the highlights from the 600+ things we came up with, but I changed my mind. Instead, I want to tell you how grateful I am for my family, and the great attitude they have when I try out silly projects like this. I am incredibly blessed by their goodness every single day.
