How do you count your blessings? It’s the time of year to give thanks for all things (big and small) that we appreciate in our daily life. Remembering and noting the gifts that we are given often mean more if you actually take the time to put it down in writing.
Here are a few cool ways to create your own reminder of what really means the most to you…
