Focus on Gratitude Now!

Doesn’t life feel different when it is filled with gratitude vs. seeing all the problems and inconveniences of life? How does gratitude contain such a magic formula that transforms your thinking and your life? We all wish for magic formulas and we definitely have one in gratitude!! We thought we would share some ideas with you to get your gratitude vibe going big time as we head into the Thanksgiving season!! Hopefully, it will become a lifelong habit!!

1- Is this a cool idea or what? Gratitude rolls!! Love this idea for the Thanksgiving meal!! It couldn’t be easier either. Just buy a can of crescent rolls, get the family to write out what they are grateful for a head of time and bake them into the rolls! Voila!!


This idea is from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and you can find it here.

OR use Rhodes rolls like they did below -


This is from Amy at the idea room. You can find her inspiration here. The paper comes out a little cleaner with the Rhodes rolls.

Love this cartoon below! How about you?

2- Thanksgiving jokes for the lunchbox - cause doesn’t laughter lead to happiness and lead to gratitude?


These lunch box jokes would be so much fun to include in their school lunch! Write what you are grateful for about them on the back and make it a double smile in one! This FREE printable is from Coupons Are Great. You can copy it directly from their site (Thank you!!) and find it here.

Oh man!! The cartoon reminds us that some things don’t change all the much !! Love it!!
