Today we started Gratitude Journals. InshaAllah we plan to write one thing that makes us sad and three things that we are grateful for. I would also like to implement it in my day as well. I listened to a lecture recently (Yusuf partially listened to it as well) and it really made me realize how much I have to take more control of my thoughts and to be more positive. And of course I would like this for my kids. So Im hoping we can make this a regular part of our routine.We got journals and made cover pages.
We talked about and memorized the verse, "If you are grateful then I will surely increase you." (14:7)
I *highly* recommend listening to the following lecture. Its pretty good for kids too. A little advanced, but perhaps if its on in the background, they may pick up a thing or too.
May Allah swt enable us to be among those who are thankful, Ameen.
