An easy way to practice appreciation in your family


Focusing on the good stuff. If we want more good to happen we have to make good the priority.

It’s the light at the end of the tunnel that helps us persevere.

It’s the rainbow on a stormy day.

It’s the smile that changes the mood.

All the things that aren’t working really well are right there on the tips of our fingers and ready to bubble over. When the kids get angry and frustrated it’s hard to work with them in this state. They need to be calmer.

Wouldn’t it be good to have a written reminder of your awesomeness when you’re feeling less than awesome? Imagine that the awesomeness comes from your family ( and they really mean it!)

Listen in to the conversation about Appreciation boards and how they encourage writing +  saying how grateful we are for each member of the family- an awesome addition to our homes. ( I just loved the alliteration to death didn’t I!?)
