I’m happy for lovely afternoons making crafts: homemade playdough with food coloring, glitter, and smelly oils in painted spaghetti sauce jars for tomorrow’s birthday party.

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week. 

To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) to or at the bottom of this post.  Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.

We need photos! Email your favorite photo to .
