21 days of gratitude – Choose Happiness 3

I am joining many other very talented bloggers in a 21 Days of Gratitude series. Each day for from Nov. 1-21, each of us will be sharing an image with a quote related to gratitude. The purpose of this series is to inspire you to find joy in every moment of every day.  This is even more appropriate for me as will be soon experiencing the joys of Florida and my first taste of thanksgiving in the US.

“The happiest people do not have the best of everything they make the best of everything”

The happiest

I believe that when you fill your life, heart and time with gratitude, it leaves very little space for the bad things in life.  Also it becomes contagious and people start to notice the small things in life.   Part of this for me is learning to live in the present and to also make the best of what we have as a family.

Life has taught me that experiences bring us more happiness than material things as a family, so we would rather make memories than buy goods.

My boys end their days writing three things they are grateful for that day.  It helps them to go to sleep on a positive note and I hope teaches them to be cup half full people.

Don’t forget to stop by each day a blogger will share a quote with you and perhaps an activity, their thoughts that will help us cultivate a heart of gratitude with our families.

The schedule is here and all of the info for you to join in.
