If you’re anything like me you’re also guilty of basically skipping right over Thanksgiving and diving from Halloween right into Christmas. Who can blame us? Christmas is the best! But for the last few years, I have tried to be more intentional about focusing on this season before skipping on to the next. “Gather” and “Gratitude” are two words we hear a lot at this time of year and I am finding that this is a great time to focus on the importance of family and increase gratitude for the blessings in my life.
This year, my friend Dani from @roots2blossoms and I have put together a fun and easy way for us all to pause and focus on gathering our family (on both sides of the veil) and growing our gratitude this month. We both know that being intentional about these feelings will deepen our connection with those around us, help us more easily recognize our blessings and set the perfect stage for entering the Christmas season.
When we put together this bucket list we made it specifically NOT be a checklist. We don’t expect you to do everything on this list. But we that know as you read through the bucket list, and try out some of the ideas that you feel drawn to, that you will feel closer to your family and that you will more easily be able to recognize the blessings in your life.
