Invitations to play
Gratitude Jar: An 'Attitude of Gratitude' takes practice and routine. Introduce this at a family meal. We keep a special jar, paper, and pens near our dining room table so we can visit this often.

It's amazing to see just all that we've accomplished as a family in one year the extraordinary and the mundane!
