Today I’d like to say thanks for November. It’s one of my favorite months and my favorite time of year.
It’s the month my son was born and the month I get to gather my family close.
It’s the month that conjures up the feeling of home and hearth and the lyrics “Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go…” brings to mind the most wonderful memories of grandpa’s farm and grandma’s cooking.
November brushes the leaves gold and sweeps the fallen ones back and forth in my yard day after day until they still and pile in the crevices of my porch.
November is warmth and chill all bundled into one glorious month for us to gather, welcome, and give thanks every day.
