Despite my best intentions I left getting a present for my 3-year-old nephew to the very last-minute.
The reasons why this happens are endless but happen it does, here’s what I did about it.
I found myself, the evening before last posting day, shopping in a well-known supermarket, were I remembered:

As some of you will realise gratitude is a them of mine.
Some time ago, months in fact, the idea came to me to start making Gratitude Books to give as presents.If we record all the things we are grateful for, that we love and that make our hearts sing in one place we have it to turn to in the more troublesome times.
