Looking for a meaningful New Year’s project your family can do together?
Journalist Harlan Miller once said, “I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.”
In this article, I’ll show you how to do just that.
Make a family jar of joy. It’s a simple way to see the good things in life; to prolong the feeling of celebration and festive holiday cheer throughout the year.
Why Make a Jar of Joy?
We’ve all heard the expressions and received the advice: “Count your blessings,” “Think positively,” “Find the good in every day”… But the busyness of family life can make this hard to remember or put into practice.
Make a jar of joy and fill it with mementos from happy events and notes about positive things that happen to your family throughout the year.
Your jar will provide a tangible reminder to look for the good in life and an instant mood boost anytime someone in your family feels blue. Just open it and read some positive thoughts.
