Last year I hosted Thanksgiving dinner for my family.
Beside the front door, before the guests could
even get into my house,
was my (well-used and versatile) twig tree.
Beside it was a basket of blank tags and various pens.
Guests wrote one, two, three...or more
things they were thankful for
They then hung them on the tree.
Even my young niece that was in kindergarten
managed to fill out several tags.
At the end of the evening,
we brought in the
Tree of Thanksgiving
and read each
This brought about many
gratitudes, compliments, memories and agreements.
This year I will once again
The tree is ready,
as are the new tags.
And the old tags have a special
place of honor as well.
What can you have waiting
on your guests
to document all those blessings?
