Today we're talking about family gratitude. I know that at this point in the summer you may not be feeling grateful, you may be feeling stressed out. You're a busy mom with a busy family and you realize that summer is half over and the things on your summer bucket list just aren't happening.

At the beginning of the summer you were looking forward to family time and all of these great family activities. Family fun was at the top of your list. But the days are flying by, summer vacation is half over and you haven't checked off more than one or two items from your Family Fun Summer Bucket List.

It's a common concern at this time of year but there are things you can do. We'll share a simple strategy for making it happen.

Then Sandy Fowler interviews Brenda Knight about gratitude and the impact it can have on your life. Gratitude is such a simple notion. It's a beautiful concept that can change your life and only requires a tiny bit of time. The thing is that it's easy to do, but it's also easy not to do. Discover the ins and outs of gratitude and how your family can easily make it part of their life.

And in Christmas Corner we're talking more about Christmas in July. This can be another great idea for your Family Fun Summer Bucket List: Have a Christmas in July family dinner party with some friends or family members you've wanted to see.

We've talked before about hosting a Christmas in July party or family reunion, but it can be just as much fun to host a stress-free family dinner or a simple dinner party with a Christmas theme. We'll share some easy, stress-free tips for creating the event along with a couple ideas for entertaining the kids.
