Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance recommends creating a Glory Box that differs from the traditional version. She recommends that you use a wicker picnic hamper and fill it with projects you hope to do in the future. For example, fabric you’d like to make into a table cloth or napkins, set aside and stored in your glory box until you have time to sew them or embroidered squares from a thrift shop you’d like to use to recover your dinning chairs some rainy Saturday afternoon. Get the idea? Remember not everyone of your desires can be immediately gratified, you’ve got to learn to wait patiently for your dreams to come true, especially on the path you’ve chosen and remember that faith should be the first thing you pack in your glory box.
If you still want to do a glory box for your daughter, try filling one with your favourite books and giving it to her on her 18th birthday.
