While skimming through my Twitter feed I saw a tweet from Christy Wright about her favorite Christmas tradition that only takes 5 minutes.
I won't lie, it was the "only 5 minutes" part that really sparked my interest in what her favorite Christmas tradition was. Here is the link to her blog post - http://christywright.com/2014/12/a-christmas-tradition/. She talks about each year when she packs up the Christmas ornaments she writes a letter to herself and talks about the past year and what she hopes for in the coming year. I thought this was a great idea not only for myself but to teach my kids more about journaling, being thankful, and setting goals. What a great way to look back to where you were a year ago and see how much God has blessed you in the past year. Also to see how you've grown and become stronger from the events of your life.
I always wish that I was better at journaling. I write in my journal every so often throughout the year. I also use my blog as a form of journaling. This tradition would provide me another moment to reflect and journal.
Thanks for sharing Christy.
