our thankful tree

At the beginning of this month, I found this idea. I honestly forget where...maybe pinterest? Yeah, probably most definitely pinterest.

Anyway, I actually gathered the branches on our walk and made it that day! I was too excited. And turns out, Chris liked the idea as well. 

We have been writing notes of thankfulness for the last three weeks. Our visitors have even joined in on the fun!

I can't help but share these. Some are funny, some are serious. But every one of them are expressions of gratitude and thankfulness to our Maker.
