I know our Canadian SOS sisters and our Canadian readers celebrated this wonderful holiday on October 14 this year, but this is the week for those of us in the US. I love this holiday so much I may start celebrating with y’all in Canada. A week is not long enough. 😊
Some of the reason I love it is because y’all, it falls in the FALL! And I love Fall. If you follow me on Facebook, or my newsletter or blog, you’ve seen plenty of pictures of beautiful leaves. Most years, I have to share pictures I’ve taken in New England because generally, Texas leaves are okay, but not spectacular. What a difference that early freeze made. Late in October we experienced two hard freezes: 24 and 27 degrees. I know not much compared to where some of you live and it was only for two days, again, not what many of you experience. But for us in North Texas this was record breaking early.
What a blessing this turned out to be. We’ve had one of our best seasons ever for colorful leaves.
The other thing I love about Thanksgiving is well, it’s about being thankful. Along with “Kindness,” “Gratitude,” as we know from our Sister, Kathryn Jane, is really important, and we should practice it every single day and not just once or twice a year. Below is where we walk Charley every morning.
No gifts are involved, just wonderful food, and time with friends and family. It is my favorite time of the year.
If you like to enter contests and like chances to win Gift Cards, I encourage you to stop by N. N. Light’s blog. Two of my books are spotlighted. VERMONT ESCAPE, especially good for this season because so much of it takes place in that beautiful state and during the fall. https://www.nnlightsbookheaven.com/single-post/2019/11/07/Vermont-Escape-SUR
SECOND ACT, Book 1 The Second Chances Series is the second one. Starting the first book in a series is always fun. https://www.nnlightsbookheaven.com/single-post/2019/11/15/SECOND-ACT-SUR
I am very thankful for this group, for the friendship with people who for the most part I’ve not met in person, for your support, and for the knowledge and inspiration you share.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, whenever you celebrate.
