Of all the skills I hope to instill in my children, demonstrating gratitude is at the top of the list. #sponsored Perspective is⁣⁣ everything, and when we take time to reflect on the good deeds from the people around us and find ways to express thanks our world becomes a brighter more grateful place ❤️⁣ ⁣⁣ Which is why I make a point to take time with my kids to sit down and discuss and reflect upon all the people we are thankful for in our lives. We love to write thank you notes 📝to the people who are making a difference. It could be a coach, their favorite teacher, delivery man, or their aunt that took them out⁣ for dinner. ⁣ ⁣ The key is to have them think of a very specific action they are thanking this person for. It is always sweet to read the messages that they write and it’s even sweeter when we pair it with some delicious @mercichocolates.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Everyone deserves a little more gratitude, and @merciChocolates is on a mission to do just that by encouraging moments of everyday gratitude. I love this sweet sentiment, but I also love the delicious varieties of chocolate you find inside each box. You can be sure whomever you gift your box to they are bound to find a flavor they love. You can find it at your local grocery or drug store.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Right now on the merci Chocolates website (www.merci.us) you can personalize your own merci cover. You get to choose a photo and write a note for the special person who made a difference in your life. My girls used this feature to make adorable boxes for their teachers and loved it. Who would you gift a box of merci Chocolates to?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #merciChocolate #gratitude⁣

She believes letting the kids get creative in the kitchen is also key

“Truth is usually I don’t want to deal with the mess BUT have you seen Cam’s DIY Starbucks Drinks? 😍😋Amazing 🙌🏼🙌🏼⁣”

She encourages weekly check-in’s with friends & family

“I’m so not a phone person but not only have I been making phone calls but I’m even video calling friends through FaceTime and Zoom too! And it’s amazing!”
