A Thankful Jar - I love the idea! (Especially that it is a Ball jar since that is my name.) I'm going to start one today. Our life has been full of tribulations and woes lately, and we need to concentrate on the sunbeams where we can find them. P.S. Boston Brace!!!!!!


I love this idea. I've considered doing one but I never seem to set one up. I think its a great way to look back at a year knowing that no matter how bad it may have been, there where good things that happened as well.


Oh my...God must have a special place in Heaven for people like Sam. Thank you Kim for posting this.

As for the jar idea...I am going to make a grand child thankful jar. I have grandchildren from 10 to 27 yrs old and it would be neat to have them drop notes when they come to visit. Then we could read them at Christmas.

I empathize with your back pain/situation as I deal with the same problem daily. Some days even in pain are better than other days. I hope you are able to find some comfort today.

Here's hoping that this years jar will be full to the brim with lovely and wonderful things!
Great idea!


This is a lovely idea, Kim, and a great way to remind ourselves of how much we have even when we're struggling. I have been looking for "delight" in every single day and it's changed my focus for the positive.

Great video! And I LOVE the frogs to the left of the jar in the top photo!! Do you recall where you got them?


I SO love this idea. I was just thinking of something like this, and I really would love to do it, but I'm afraid it might end up just being me doing it! Hubby doesn't really think to do things like that, and the kids are so young, but then it might be a good lesson to them as well.


Great idea, totally something I should do, too!


Anne Voscamp's book "One Thousand Gifts" has been on the best seller list for a long time and has impacted so many people. It is about finding things to be grateful for every day. I think it changes our focus.


What a wonderful idea and I am glad that you found lots of good things in there! <3


P.S. I am happy that your jar was such a pleasure! May it be so again.


Anything that shifts our focus in the direction of gratitute is worthwhile. Remember Oprah promoting a book about gratitude and a daily gratitude journal? Great idea!
