Thanksgiving is the winding up of autumn. The leaves are off the trees, except here and there on a beech or an oak; there is nothing left on the boughs but a few nuts and empty birds’ nests. The earth looks desolate, and it will be a comfort to have the snow on the ground, and to hear the merry jingle of the sleigh-bells.

~Oliver Wendell Holmes


FOCUS:  30 Days of Thanks

Today I am thankful for the holiday of Thanksgiving.  Landing perfectly during the lull in beauty between the fall and winter seasons, Thanksgiving gives us a reason to gather together and celebrate all of life’s blessings.  It is the ideal capstone to a beautiful autumn, and the perfect gateway to the merriment of the Christmas season.
