It is officially November and I can’t believe that 2020 is almost over! It was definitely not a year I expected, but I think I can say that there were a few good things that happened. Like visiting my hometown in Tennessee this summer, or starting a new job at a local dance studio. And also choreographing and performing with my dance group.

November is a great month to reflect on the year and what we have to be thankful for. Especially since the end of the month is when many people celebrate Thanksgiving. Let’s get a start on being Thankful by starting a Thankful Jar this month.

All you need is a jar or any fun container, as well as some small pieces of paper and a writing utensil. You can decide if you are going to add to the jar daily, weekly, or at any other point in time. But the more you add, the more fun it is to read everything at the end of the month!

On each piece of paper, write something you are thankful for. If you live with your family, have everyone participate! You might be surprised to learn what people are grateful for!
