The Start of Our Thankful Tree

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.
