{Day 16} Gratitude


{Day 16} for my Christmas journal is about what I am grateful for. When thinking about expressing gratitude, I thought of those wonderful paper chains we used to make as a kid. Many times one would write a kind deed that was done on a strip of paper and compile all of those thanks into a chain and hang it on a tree or mantle. Such wonderful sentiments! So I wanted to make a paper chain of sorts on my page. I had seen a different design for a chain in a magazine recently and used this shape here. I then wrote on my chain all of things I am grateful for this holiday season:)

Cool chain! I saw one a few minutes ago...there was a little prayer on each strip for a child to read one before bed each night.
