Thankful Tree

Hello, I hope you are having a good week so far. I’ve been recuperating from a terrible cold and haven’t been able to do much of anything, which is frustrating when your to-do list is a mile long! I’ve been forced to take it easy the last few days, tackling only one small, simple project, with a little help from my kiddos.

 Every year during the month of November we make a “thankful tree”, writing down one thing per day that we are thankful for on a slip of paper, then hanging that paper on a make-shift tree.

It’s fun to see how much they have grown over the years and how the things they are thankful for have changed. My daughter no longer writes “dolls” on her slips of paper and my son is no longer thankful for “light-sabers”. These little nuggets of thankfulness will be great keepsakes to look back on one day.

This is the simplest of projects, really all you need is a branch, a vase or other container to place it in, some stones to hold the branch in place, and some slips of paper to write your sentiments on.

And since this post is all about being thankful, I’m just going to say that I’m so very thankful that colds are only temporary! I’m also thankful that you stopped by to visit and share a slice of your day with me. What are you thankful for?

Until next time,
