Last December I came across the idea of creating a blessings jar.
Using a plain jar would work just fine, but I thought that decorating jars would be a good activity for our holiday party.
|December 2012, decorating blessing jars|
I have been using my jar throughout the year and I wanted to share some of my favorite blessings to help inspire others to try it out this year:
|Ticket stub & coin from Ben Howard Concert|
April 17th, 2013: My friends and I went up to Vancouver, BC to hear Ben Howard perform at the Orpheum Theater. We unknowingly had front row seats and managed to get free parking! It was incredible & still feels unreal.
|Souvenir Penny from Seattle, WA|
February 2nd, 2013: My mom and I met up in Seattle for an adventure day. We explored Pike Place Market, rode the Monorail to the Space Needle, enjoyed the view from the Columbia Center, and-of course- drank coffee.
My poor roommate had a tough time with both mono and strep throat,
and I felt blessed that my immune system was working well.
|Note from my Mom on the day I flew to STL to see my friend|
August 2013: I got to spend a perfect week in St. Louis, MO with my best friend. Lots of walking, napping, eating good food and meeting good friends. We went to the City Museum, the STL zoo, a rafting trip, and a back to school BBQ
Now I'll empty out my blessing jar, find a place to store my 2013 notes & keepsakes,
and see what 2014 has in store for me!
