    Memory Jar 2012. Found by a pinner at http://steamykitchen.com/ -- my girls and i did something similar in the early 90s, and believe it or not, i still have some of the "gratitude slips" kept. Great idea (but the jar needs to be muuuuch larger i think!) Read them together as a family on New Year's eve or day, then maybe paste them onto scrapbook paper for a quickie 'look back' album?

    Memory jar! We keep this jar on the kitchen counter with paper and a marker. Every few days, one of us will jot down something that made our family laugh or smile. On New Year’s Eve, we empty out the jar, read them one by one. Next year, a new jar to begin again and the best part is we can bring out past jars anytime to remember the little things that shaped our lives.The best is when one of us secretly writes memory and quietly slips it into the jar.
