Fall has to be, hands down, my favourite season. I love the chill in the air, taking walk in the forest with all the colours exploding around me, the musty aroma of decaying leaves filling my senses and the crunch of dried leaves under my feet. Hands down my favourite season but followed closely by the renewal and hope of spring. Fall is a time for reflection, preparing to go inside and retreat for several months. The days grow shorter, the nights longer. Soon the time will change. Long gone are the migrating birds and geese, the humming birds, the colourful butterflies and the laughs, cries and calls of children playing outdoors.
Thanksgiving is upon us. Another reflection period. Time to be grateful for all we are and all we have. Let us not forget to be grateful, not only today, but every day – to take a moment, each and every day, to say “thank you for all that is and all that is to come.”
