The Start of Our Thankful Tree October 7, 2020|Tana|Fill your cup up with the Good, Home and Family, Thankful Thursday Change Among Us I do love this time of the year. We get to see the changes happening around us; the leaves turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red. We get to feel the change by cooler mornings and shorter days. We can touch the change as we spread fall décor all over our homes and haul the pumpkins to the porch. But I think most importantly…we experience the change of season in our hearts as we give thanks. Every year our family makes a grateful tree. We have done it a few different ways, but the principle is the same: write down one thing everyday that we are thankful for. We add the leaves to the tree and one by one we begin to fill an empty trunk to overfull. When we take the time to be thankful, to write them down one by one, add them to the tree and stand back and marvel at all the blessings in our lives, change begins to happen in our hearts. We begin to look at our days with a different perspective. We begin to smile a little more and worry a little less. I'm thankful for the warm fall days I'm thankful for the sun that shines accross my desk I'm thankful for the opportunity to teach our boys how important it is to be thankful I am thankful that God has given us this time together, to grow in grattitude as a family I am thankful for every single day that I have been given I want to encourage you to start your own grateful tree this year. It is such a simple thing...but the change that will happen in your heart is monumental. What Are You Thankful For? With love, Tana Make sure to Leave a Comment! And Check out our Other Posts!
