This year I created a memory calendar that looks more like a list than anything else. I plan to hang it on our fridge or by our desk so it is handy all the time and I can write down cool things that happen each month – awards the kids get in school, fun little family outings, and simple memories that make me smile. Then, in December, I can pull it out and have a wealth of ideas to add to our letter. I can also tuck it in the back of my journal and have all those beautiful memories preserved forever.
This year my personal goal is to become more aware of the blessings in my life. I will also print a copy of this memory calendar just for myself so I can record all the little blessings that come daily – those tender mercies from my Heavenly Father that he gives to bring us joy and help us along the way. I feel like if we are more aware of those things, and try harder to recognize and record them, they will come more and more frequently.
This memory calendar is designed to be printed on 8 ½ x 11 cardstock – two months to a page. Download the printable file here. Simply cut each page in half lengthwise and clip them together with a pretty binder clip. It is seriously the easiest project EVER!
Happy New Year, friends!
