Spread the Gratitude! Mini Thank You Notes Printables...

I love this time of year, because we are all looking for ways to express our gratitude. I can turn a challenging day around by spending a few minutes thinking of all that I have to be grateful for. Did you know that research supports the fact that gratitude makes us healthier and happier? With this is mind I set out to find a new way for us to share what we are thankful for together.

I thought it would be nice to leave little invitations around the house reminding us as a family to stop and express our thanks for the little and big things we do for each other on a daily basis.
