Thankful Tree

Okay, okay. I promise, this will be the last unrelated myeloma post for while! Although, to some extent, it does have to do with my "permanent health kick" but more along the lines of stress reduction and positive thinking.

J and I have decided to make a "Thankful Tree" for the month of November. Well, I decided to make the tree, and have roped J in is more like it! I can't take credit for the idea, I found it on Pinterest - God's gift to the crafty and the procrastinators out there. Biggest time-suck ever! But I digress...

Thankful Tree: Every day for the month of November until Thanksgiving we will each write something that we are thankful for on a paper leaf and add it to the "tree."

The tree! Yes, a bit scary looking right now.
The branches were easy to find with the hurricane we just had!

 The leaves and recording sheet...
A bit like a school project but whatever. :)

By the end of the month it will look something like this!

I am hoping this tree will be a visible reminder of some of the wonderful things God has blessed us with. J and I have hit a bit of a rough patch as of late (in more ways than one!) but we have to be positive, and we have to be thankful. We definitely do have a lot of be thankful for!


  1. What a great idea! I am going to carry it in my head until I get to the grand=kids and we can do one for Thanksgiving together.... intending your rough patches are easing up and you are cruising through November in good spirits, for the highest and best good of all concerned, so be it and so it is!
