Merry Tree Of Gratitude ~ Day 25


There is just something about a tree branch that begs to be adorned with little notes of gratitude and thanksgiving...that longs to stand proudly by your holiday table...that loves to dress fancy with glitter~y leaves and baby green apples....it is the tree that keeps on giving and then some...oh Merry Tree of Gratitude!

I love this idea....take a tree branch....add leaves and fruit and ribbon and glitter and whatever you like and set it in a sturdy base. Then paint some clothespins and add a bowl of note cards and a pen. As you prepare for Thanksgiving encourage your family to write notes of gratitude, little prayers of thanks or messages to each other and clip them to the tree. Thanksgiving Day read the notes.
Gather clothespins and some notes...I used little
tags I found in the dollar bin at Target~o~rama...

On closer inspection...the colors are perfect...
Clip ~ away...
A colorful tree in fall....

I am truly thankful for a family to nurture and serve...it is a blessing, it is a pleasure and it is my job....lucky
me.
So clip a branch and decorate the day~lights out of it with Autumnal wonderful~ness and be grateful for every minute of it.
Until tomorrow...
