Easy Thankful Tree Craft to Remember What Matters Most

Well, the chaotic presidential election of 2016 is over and I must admit that I am not all that pleased with the results.  I find myself getting caught up with the anger and frustration that many Americans have felt these past several months.  As a result, I wanted a reminder of the things that are truly important in life. This thankful tree craft is my way of reminding myself that no matter who sits in the White House, I still have a lot of things to be thankful for.
