We live in a time of abundance and it’s easy to become complacent. We take so much for granted. Over a year ago we started asking our kids every night what they are grateful for about the day and then we say a family prayer and include the things that they say. The kids do say they are thankful for their toys or other material things but most of the time their gratitude is focused on experiences and the friends and family interactions they had that day. It is amazing the growth that we see in them and in their answers the longer we continue to keep this tradition going.
Gratitude has a way of turning what we have into enough. It gives both kids and adults perspective on what is important. It is healthy for us to focus on our blessings.
Gratitude is something that takes practice, and this is why I created the St. Patrick’s Day Gratitude Wheel. With so much talk of luck this time year I turned it into a teaching opportunity where my child was able to say why she is lucky. I then proceeded to let her write and/or draw pictures in each of the six spaces. She loved the activity and has been showing everyone her wheel and why she feels like she is lucky.
