Happy November! Boy, I am getting excited and very into the Spirit of the Season this year!
Yes, I know!.... this early?! You bet! I've been working hard, bargain hunting and putting the last touches on several projects, that I will soon be sharing with you!
On this one, I will admit, I completely copied the idea! Yes, I'm honest enough to admit it and, actually sorry, I hadn't thought of it on my own, first. However,that being said, they are drastically different. The idea is all that is similar. Have you ever made and kept up a Gratitude tree? If you have, Yay for you. I am impressed! I keep up a Gratitude journal, but I have never before made a Gratitude tree, one started in the beginning of November so it can be added to daily!
What an awesome way to remind ourselves, and all that visit, how very Blessed we truly are, as we ready are house and cupboards for Thanksgiving!
This is how my Gratitude Tree came together!
I rather like it a lot! It makes me smile and "count my blessings" several times throughout the day, as I pass by it. I have even taken to asking friends and family to fill out a tag of whatever they are grateful for and to add it to my tree. So far, everyone was pleased to do so! There you go, another thing I'm grateful for!
If you Google "Gratitude Tree" or "Thanksgiving Tree" you will see, there are as many different ways to make one as there are things to be thankful for. So, this is my way!
A Christmas tree is only a Christmas tree if you decorate it to be such. This cute little burlap wrapped pine tree I thought fit the bill just perfectly for my little Gratitude tree! I hope you and enjoy it and find some way to remember all that you have to be thankful for. If you don't find yourself in a thankful place, well then, you have my sympathy and prayers.
Many Blessing to you, Friends!
