Wednesday, December 28, 2016 – Winding Down and The Empty Jar
The year 2016 thankfully is almost over. To quote from The Dead, “What a long strange trip it’s been.” With President Twitter about to take office, we do not know what 2017 brings. However, we must have faith and expectations of hope and promise. Here is a simple way to remember good things that will happen in 2017.
Several family members received a large empty glass container as a gift. With the containers there was a ball point pen and stacks of post it notes. On a simple index card I wrote “This is a 2017 Happiness and Blessings Jar. Whenever something makes you happy or you feel blessed, jot it down on a note and place in the jar. On December 31, 2017, take out the scraps of paper and recall how blessed you were during the year.” Then I tied the index card to the jar with a ribbon.
I am going to start my Happiness and Blessing Jar this evening when first – The Texas Aggie Women’s Basketball team defeats Prairie View A&M. This will be followed when the Texas Aggies BTHO Kansas State tonight in Texas Bowl.
