Let’s start the season off with gratitude and compassion.
I hope you will seriously consider sponsoring a turkey instead of eating one this Thanksgiving. What can it hurt to at least give it a try? You may find it liberating. It will definitely be life changing.
In preparation for Thanks-Living I am making a Gratitude Tree (one for my office, as part of my friend Wilmetta’s Harvest Festival, and one for us). I have included the patterns, from HP. I gathered some twigs and branches last week (I may get some more from the craft store if needed) and I will assemble the tree later this week! Basically the tree is made from sticks and branches put together in a vase of some kind (I am going to hold mine together with some colorful tulle or organza). A hole is punched in each of the leaves and ribbon for tying each leaf to the tree is added. Family and friends can write what they are grateful for on each of the leaves. A tree of gratitude – it’s a beautiful thing.
Send us a picture of your Gratitude Tree and your adopted turkey :).
Happy Meatless Monday!
