For our family this is especially important because we had ancestors on the Mayflower and the Speedwell. When I think about what the Puritans went through as they made the perilous journey to America I am in awe. I do not know if I would have been that committed or had that much faith to make the trek during that time.
This year our family started a new tradition, the Thanksgiving tree.
Then when our friends and family came we had each of them do the same thing. I then took a piece of twine and looped it to form a knot and hung them all on our trees. We ended up having to put two of them next to each other because of the many things that we were grateful for.
