So have you seen them? Everyone's Facebook posts promising one thing a day to be grateful for in November? It is a cute idea, and I even created a crafty approach to giving thanks this month for my KC Parent blog yesterday (photo above). It is a quick and fun way your children can participate in learning about gratitude, too. And it even works all year long.
But, my new favorite way to show gratitude is through photography. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. I am planning to take a photo a day to show what I am grateful for. I hope it'll inspire me to be more focused on seeing -- I mean really seeing -- all of the beauty and the love around me. While at the same time, I can expirement more with my camera, and feel like I have things to shoot that aren't my children. I love taking photos of the girls, of course, but my interest in photography goes beyond that. And without a specific project in mind it is sometimes hard to grab the camera and just go!
Will you join me? I am creating the hash tag #seethegood for Twitter, and would love for you to tweet your photos (or links to where your photos are published), and add #seethegood so that we can all have the opportunity to see what we're grateful for, not only at Thanksgiving time, but always! I can be found on Twitter @laurenau. Won't you follow me? I'd love for you (and others!) so see all of the good you have to offer the world!
