Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in Canada. (Thus one more pic from the cranberry bogs!) It's one of my favourite holidays, along with Hallowe'en. As I have said often, Autumn is my favourite time of year. There's just something so uplifting about the natural beauty here at this time of year in addition to the weather and the celebrations that take place in October.
Next weekend we will celebrate my husband's birthday and the week after that, our 18th wedding anniversary. We purposely chose to get married in my favourite month so we could have yet another reason to celebrate and feel happy in October.
October ends now with just a tinge of sadness, as Hallowe'en was also my Gramps' birthday and now that he's gone, I can't help but miss him especially on that day. *breathe*
Anyway, I have alot to be thankful for this year. I am reposting the Harvest Prayer from last Thanksgiving, simply because it's an eloquent reminder of how we can create a beautiful life for ourselves. On our best days, this is who we are.
