Celebrate with Thankfulness

Cheers! Pop! Fizz! Clink! It's New Years Eve! It's time to put on the sparkles and celebrate! It's also that time of year that many people take moments to reflect on what has past and eagerly anticipate what is to come ... 

It's a band new year, a blank canvas, a clean slate, a new start ... What will you do with yours? 

A NYE tradition that my husband + i have been doing for years now is "a little jar of thankfulness"
Its a jar we fill the whole year through with thankful thoughts and moments. We then take time to sit down on NYE + read all the notes of thanksgiving we have written in the past year. They act as reminders to all that we have been through + everything we are thankful for. 
The good times out way the bad and to start a brand new year with a thankful heart is priceless. It sets you up for success in the year to come. This is a treasured tradition of ours. I dare you to try it! 

It is also the perfect NYE party favour or hostess gift if you are going out. I make sure i take a bunch for whoever we end up celebrating with!

As 2014 closes here are some thoughts to send you into 2015 ... 

a new years gift | 
Sometimes magical moments are captured, other times they are seen with the eye but remembered with the heart. 
As one year draws to a close and another begins, we find our selves sentimentally reflecting on what was + eagerly anticipating what is to come. 
We remember with pain those that we have lost, that saw their last year here on earth. 
We smile as we think of precious life just beginning, from the miracles of little ones. 
We laugh out loud with the loved ones that surround our lives daily. 
Though there be pain, we seek out the joy, through the disappointments we rise above, and with endurance + strength we move forward. 
From the intense highs to the painful lows, still your heart + let it respond with thanksgiving, clinging to a new hope, new faith + new love. 

Happy 2015, thank you for a wonder, beauty filled year! X
