  5. I want to do something intentional like this in 2018 – maybe a big jar in the middle of our dining room table, or some journals or something. My kids would love this as well.

  12. I love this idea! And I really like getting the kids involved. My boys are too young to write, but they could easily tell us something. Now to decide if we do a big family jar or one for each of us.

  13. I’ll pretty much try anything that Oprah recommends but this idea, regardless of its origin, seems like something we can all get behind. What a simple and easy way to remind ourselves of the many beautiful things we have to be grateful for- will definitely try this out in the new year.
