Keeping with the month-long theme of gratitude, this week we are going to ‘note’ our gratitude to the people we love most.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Look through your stash of pattern paper and pick a sheet that you LOVE.
2. Cut it into 3″ strips
3. Cut each of these strips into 2″ pieces
You will now have 24 pieces of pattern paper.
Stack these little notes by your bed, your desk, your kitchen sink — wherever you will see them.
Write short expressions of gratitude to your immediate family and hide them in unexpected places, to be discovered in unexpected moments.
You could hide one inside a locker or coat closet.
You could hide one inside a shower.
OR, you could hide one …
- on a review mirror
- inside a backpack, lunchbox or briefcase
- in a toybox
- in a shoe
- under a cup of coffee
- in a wallet
- in between a stack of clean clothes
- under a pillow
Get the idea?
Our goal is to use all 24 ‘notes’ of gratitude during the next seven days.
Obviously, you will be able to leave several notes for each member of your immediate family — so get creative and be specific!
If you live alone or with just one other person — you may want to spread the LOVE a bit farther. I’ll leave this up to you, and I can’t wait to hear some of your adaptations.
