A few years ago, shortly after I moved to New Orleans, Mom gave me a crystal, pumpkin-shaped candy dish. I loved the pumpkin, but I didn’t want to fill it with candy because I’d eat it. So I decided to fill it with notes about why I’m thankful instead. It was surprisingly easy to fill the pumpkin with reasons to be thankful, and I spend a lot of time reflecting on that all year. I added to the pile last year using a different format, but it it was so much fun looking through things that made my happy and grateful in prior years. I’m thankful for a lot of things this year too, so maybe I should make a new compilation of blessings. Does anyone else do that? If so, how to do reflect on them?
