Instead of shouting out about my new book coming out on Wednesday (Breed True) I thought I’d share this idea for a memory jar I saw on Facebook the other day. The plan is to keep a container handy for those small moments of pleasure you don’t crow about but make you smile just the same. Then at the end of the year, read through them and relive the tiny moments that enriched 2013.
I’ve had a very good year and been more productive than ever before so I have a lot of big things to smile about. But so I don’t forget the many little things happening each day that make me happy, I’ve started my own memory jar. I’m getting all crafty this holiday season and making some fancier versions for friends . But whether it’s a clean peanut butter jar or an elegant wooden box, I think it’s a neat idea worth sharing.
Today, I dropped three notes in mine. 1) I won a game of Words With Friends and scored 485, a new record for me. 2) DH patted my bottom and hugged me before he went out the door this morning 3) A reader left me a note on FB and said she liked my sense of humor.
Those are just small things but each one makes me smile just recounting them to you again. I’ve put my three in now it’s your turn. To go in a drawing for an ecopy of my latest title (Breed True, releasing November 6) leave a note in today’s memory jar (comment below) and share something you’d like to remember at year’s end.
