Giving Thanks

Classy Clutter

I really can't believe it is November.  
Like never before I feel excited to celebrate this month of "Thanksgiving".  
Last month I did THIS post

EveryDay Thanksgiving


… where I shared some of my favorite talks and quotes on gratitude.

I also mentioned this book that I had just finished reading.

You can find it  HERE.

This is the trailer:



We started a tradition  in our family with a
“Thankful Tree”.
During the month we write things we are thankful for on little leaves and then hang them on a wire tree.  It is so fun to watch the progression as the tree fills up with blessings! 
Even more rewarding is the realization of so many gifts from heaven.

I hope this month, so perfectly timed before celebrating the birth of our Savior,
we can all do something in our lives and in our homes that will encourage


Happy Month of 
Thanksgiving !

We do the thankful tree as well and I know it means more when the person rights down their blessings! I need to read that book!

I LOVED that...what a great idea, the thanksgiving Tree.
I miss AMERICAN thanksgiving. It really is my favorite time of year
I like it so much better then the frenzied commericalism that Christmas has become.

Although November will be hard for me....I will concentrate on being thankful.

I put that book on hold at the library after you posted it, and it still hasn't come in! Must be popular. :D
