Southern Living has teamed up with Tiny Prints to celebrate gratitude, which is defined as the quality of being thankful. In all the busyness, we may sometimes forget to say thank you and show gratitude when we should. We challenge you to reflect on what you are thankful for in your life, and share a small act to pass along gratitude to others in your life.
Many times when reading a book, you think about the people in your life. Maybe the plot reminds you of an event in a friend’s life, or the encouraging message is something you want to share with a family member. Next time you finish a book, instead of just placing it on your bookshelf to collect dust, share it! Whether it is a friend or family member, it will show them how much you value their role in your life.
Include a hand-written note explaining why you thought of them and drop it in the mail. Personalized stationery from Tiny Prints will have you looking for reasons to write a letter! With all the technology that surrounds us, receiving a note in the mail is a gesture that will be sure to put a smile on their face. And maybe they will pass the book along when they are done!
Make sure to check back next Friday for the next act of gratitude!
