Daily 3T Journal

Today I'm thankful for...
1) our veterans
2) my hubby who actually took off a holiday (may be the first this year)
3) pony tale holders (best way to skip a bath so you can go play at the park)

Many (many) years ago I watched an Oprah show that had Dr. Phil as a guest (yes, this was years before he had his own show) & he suggested starting a journal where you simply jot down 3 things that you are grateful for everyday... well, this stuck with me (not sure why because  not much does). Easy peasy, right? Well it was, but most importantly it taught me to appreciate the little stuff... not just the big obvious stuff. I ended up filling journals all though college, but sadly lost touch with it as my life got busy with work, marriage, kids and life.

So this year I decided that it was time for me to bring what I call my daily 3T (Thankful for Three Things) journal back to life & I'm going to share it with you through Thanksgiving. Perhaps you'll start one too? Its a great way to slow down, reflect and appreciate your life at the end of each a every day.

Enough sappy reflection... here is a Thanksgiving card I have to share created with Darcie's Clear Flourish Pumpkin set.

Well, I'm off to Mom's Night Out for my daughter's school (another thing I'm thankful for;). Have a great Thursday!

But I just stop to tell you: thank you for the 3T. I will start today.
Thanks. Many thanks.
