Christmas present to myself

I saw a piece on Oprah about low cost and free Christmas gifts, one of which is to make a nice box and have everyone in the family write nice things about each other such as " My Christmas Wish for you is..." My kids laughed at me when I suggested it, so I thought of something I could do for myself. The idea was to make a list of affirmations, prayers, beliefs, values, print them up, and put them in a bag, and pull one out every day, just reminders to myself. Bumper stickers for my brain. Not sure if I will get to the bag part, but I have written down my list, that is a start. When you share a prayer or affirmation it becomes stronger, so I am sharing my list. Free to take, as long as it is given.
