tree of thanks.

I’m taking this season to be intentional about being thankful.

You’ve probably picked up on that by now with posts like this and this.  I want a thankful heart to be at the center of my family.  I want Jack to grow up being thankful.  To look at the day, look at the situation, and see not the troubles of this world, but see what he is truly thankful for– to see the blessings and gifts showered upon us.  To be thankful, no matter how we are feeling, because this thankfulness- it’s not about us.

I saw this post over at Jones Design Company [one of my favorite blogs] about her thankful tree, and I knew it’d be the perfect addition to the Morgan home.  A place where we could see– every day– just what we’re thankful for.  A place to make us stop and think.  A place for others to see our hearts of thanksgiving.  An offering of thanks in our living room.

My little assistant and I headed out to collect the branches we would need for this project.  Good thing I have such a good assistant.

And now, we give thanks.

I found this sweet little one on the tree…

Jack loves getting eskimo kisses– especially from his Daddy.


So that each day we may think of all we are thankful for…
