The Thankful Tree

Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  It really is time to reflect on your life and your year to determine all the things you are thankful for.  The Thankful Tree is a wonderfully simple yet profound way that you can do just this.  Besides being a beautiful decoration for your Thanksgiving table, it makes you take a minute and reflect so you can put your thoughts on the tree.

It really is such a simple idea, but it really has a “kick” to it.  You can make the thankful tree simply, with twigs and paper or you can get fancy like the tree shown here.

Either way, if you set this beautiful tree where everyone can see it and have everyone add a note telling what they are thankful for, you will have a Thanksgiving tradition to remember.

Personally, I really like the one below that is simple and easy.  I think kids would love to help make this tree and would be very happy to add to the branches with lots of notes about thankfulness.
