Thankful Thursday

Our Thankful Tree

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends and family in the States! This year, we made a Thankful Tree and hung it on our kitchen wall. Every couple days, we made more leaves, added what we were thankful for that day and stuck it to our tree. The sign above the tree says "Give Thanks". 

One of my favorite parts was seeing what the kids would come up with! Some days they made my heart sing and other days, they made us laugh. 

Just a few:

My Family
My Healthy Family
A Good Job
Video Games
Running
Getting hugs
Coffee
Toys
Friends
Laughing
Sunshine
New Experiences

This time of year, everyone always states what they are thankful for, but I've been trying to live that way through the entire year. Our Thankful Tree will be coming down next week to make room for the next holiday, but I hope that the idea will continue to live in my children. 

To anyone traveling today and this weekend, drive safely! Enjoy your time with your family and friends, and remember to give thanks for the big and little things in life. Don't let the crazy shopping and sales get in the way of what is important this weekend...quality time with your loved ones!

Do you have anything similar to our Thankful Tree? I'd love to see pictures if you're willing to share.
