A great idea?

Well I think it is..
Write a little note on what blessings you've received each day and pop the notes in a jar to read either at the end of the month or year or when you're feeling 'blue'!!
 
I have only just started this but I already have some wonderful notes of blessings...
And what made my heart sing yesterday? My DD phoned as she had received those pesky fingerless mitts. I sent them to the school where she works, she is an Examination Officer in two Cambridge Comprehensives. A very stress filled job especially as the one took on the IB.
She was delighted and had shown them to all her colleagues, who were very impressed! Criky it was just a cable pattern with a twist section around gaps.. the worst bit was the awful metal needles. If I had the size in plastic I would have used those but I didn't. I have bought new sets of needles for sock knitting, which  are wooden and square, yes square, but they hold the stitches securely..
Anyway I am looking forward to reading my notes at the end of March? I suppose I could write them in a little book but some how,  little notes appealed to me more!
Whew so glad she thought they were ok!

Happy Days.

What a wonderful idea. I should be sure to put the date on the little note, too, and later write them up in booklet form. Blessings!

Love the notes idea.
When my sibling twins were 40 I did them jars with age saying etc in them.

What a great idea! Like the jar too.

I like the way you record the things you've made. I'm hopeless at it but think I might start, that way I might feel like I've achieved more.
