My friends and I have been trying to express more gratitude, especially since there have been lots of changes in our lives recently. I started to make a happiness jar to remind myself visually that I need to be grateful for every day. I saw the idea from Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love, on her Facebook account. I decided to take that idea to my dearest friend's present. I found a photo ornament from Michael's craft store. I printed out some of my friend's Facebook status updates in which she was thankful for something. I figured this could be my tradition for her every year for her tree. This was her gift for 2012.
