Summer is well behind us and autumn is bursting out around us.This is my favourite time of year. The air is clear and crisp, the sun is often shining and the leaves on the trees scream out in a harmony of warm hues that remind me that it’s time to take my kids to the pumpkin patch. This is the season of being thankful.
Thanksgiving Day was born as a celebration of the “bountiful harvest” of the year’s crops. While many of us have lost the connection between the food on our plates and the farm that it came from, we’ve retained the notion of reflecting on (even if it’s for just a moment) the meal in front of us, the people around us and the opportunities that life puts before us.
