Have you ever had this great idea? I mean, the best idea EVER! And you try to make it a reality but it just doesn’t quite turn out right. Yes, well, here is one of mine. And I thought I’d share it anyway because it is a great idea. My execution is lacking. It’s called the Thankful Tree. But it looks a bit more like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree. You know the one….. needles falling, bent over, one ornament. Yep, that’s it!
So the idea was to gather some branches and colorful leaves. Attach the leaves back on to the branches and decorate the branches with tags stating what we are thankful for. So simple, so cute, so meaningful, right?! Well, the thought was there.
I try to teach my children to have an attitude of gratitude. And this would be a wonderful exercise in that. And it was. It just didn’t come out looking so good.
Perhaps next year’s thankful tree will be better. I have time to plan it.
