Choose a Christmas stocking to hang in your home. This time of year there are plenty to choose from and sales are everywhere. You can probably find one in your colors or decorating theme. Hang the stocking in a prominent and convenient place. When you have a joyful moment, write this down on a slip of paper and put in the “Joy Stocking”.
As you go throughout the year, you will find lots of opportunities to be grateful, thankful, excited, and full of joy…..now you have a place to collect these moments! At the end of 2014, remove all the slips of paper from your “Joy Stocking” and enjoy remembering all the joy you experienced! This could even be a New Year’s activity you do alone, with your family or others.
As you prepare for the end of 2013, it’s also a new beginning! Make 2014 the year you choose to celebrate JOY!
We’d love you to post a picture of your Joy Stocking in the comment section below.
