Tis the season for gratitude. My top 50!

Tis the Season. Not for Christmas songs just yet... although one station in DC thinks so and the stores thought so before Halloween... disgusting. Not Christmas... but just the idea that they're trying to maximize on the materialistic aspect of the holiday!

But, tis the season for gratitude. And I don't have enough of it. I get so caught up when things go wrong, but yet, when things go right it's like fleeting thoughts!

This week in school, I have been teaching the kids about expressing gratitude and how it makes the person feel when you express gratitude to another.
Makes you and them feel all GOOD inside :)
I even have a little visual I do with it (thanks to a lesson I found on lds.org!!) So, why don't I do more of it? Seems like a great thing for both involved... the giver and the receiver!

So, this post has been on my mind for a while and I am going to just start listing in no specific order because I realized I can't prioritize these... or it was agonizing to even try and do so:
