Gifts We Already Have

I saw the idea for “Gifts We Already Have” somewhere in Internetland, and I took to it immediately. Made this in about fifteen minutes and stuck it on the wall. I neglected to erase my penciled lettering after I went over it with marker, but sometimes that’s the way life happens around here:

Gifts We Already Have

“Give us a thankful sense of the blessings in which we live, of the many comforts of our lot; that we may not deserve to lose them by discontent or indifference.” – Jane Austen

What gifts do you already have?

    This is a FABULOUS idea! Ours went up at dinner time and was very much needed around here. I think this will be a new yearly tradition for us.

    I shall use my gift of tommorrow’s empty calendar to make one of these! Thanks for sharing!

        Ours went up in the kitchen last night and everyone loves it! I think it may become a permanent kitchen fixture! What a great way to promote an attitude of gratitude! Thanks again for sharing! Would you please give Alyssa a hug for me and tell her we miss her!

          Sure thing, Brenda! I’m happy to hear it was well-received with your family. Have a great holiday together!

  • In My Kitchen, In My Life is a place where women (and the odd male) can be encouraged, nudged, and occasionally kicked in the pants toward living their lives on a higher plane. Oh, and readers get plenty of chances to laugh at the author's foibles, which is always worth a click.
