My family started a fun Thanksgiving tradition last year, and
we’ve kept it around as a reminder of the many things we are
thankful for… I found a branch that had fallen off one of the
trees in our yard and put it in a quart size mason jar. Then
secured it by filling the jar with smooth river stones and topped
the stones off with decorative moss. I then tied a ribbon around
the top of the jar. I set out a bowl of metal rim marking tags and
pens. As each family member thought of things they were thankful
for, they wrote that word on one of the tags and then tied it on to
the branch as if it were a leaf. It was exciting to see the tree
branch slowly fill up with leaves.
