We've been working on expressing gratitude in our family. There is so much to be grateful for and I want my children to grow up with an understanding of what gratitude is instead of a sense of entitlement. I believe that it's important to be able to express gratitude to those around us as well as for those things which we have been given--such as our health and a home to live in.
William Arthur Ward stated, "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." With that being said, when I ran across this offer I knew this would tie in perfectly for one of our family nights.
Snapfish just extended a great offer – get five (5) FREE 5×7 folded greeting cards for only $2.50 shipping when you use promo code TRY5CARDS at checkout. That comes out to only $0.50 cents a card! You can do this promotion up to FIVE times per account (but you will need to do separate transactions each time). This promo code is only valid on cards $2.99 or less.
So here's what we're going to do. I'm going to order the number of cards needed and include a picture of my kids on the front. We are then going to send them to our loved ones that we do not get to visit with on a regular basis as well as those that live nearby. In each card we are each going to write why we are grateful for that person. Miss G, being only 2 years old, can draw them a pretty picture instead.
Even if you don't use Snapfish to order the cards, pull out your pen and paper and send a card of gratitude to someone. As Thomas S. Monson stated, "Have an Attitude of Gratitude".
