If I could only describe November with one word, it would be "Thankful", but there are many other words and phrases to describe this beautiful month,.... autumn leaves falling,
"if you help rake leaves we can have a fire tonight, and oh! the smell of leaves burning, to this day, it is one of my best fall country pleasures.
I remember times spent at my grandmothers leading up to that most welcome time of year known as "Thanksgiving Day", as a matter of fact "Thanksgiving Day"was anticipated with much excitement. It meant going to both grandparent's home and being with family.

We started the month out with thankful hearts, because it was at this time that our schools really taught us about the pilgrims coming to America,and how thankful we should be. All month long "Thankfulness" was emphasized in homes, churches, and schools. So in honor of this very "thankful" month I have decided to join Leah at South Breeze Farm for Giving Thanks Challenge......... I will try and list each day on my side bar of something that I am thankful for, I will also do some posting about my thankfulness. My personal goal for this month is to cultivate a heart that is not only thankful in November, but all year long.
I am inviting you to join me and others, as we celebrate this most thankful month. I would so love to read your list. My friend Vee, posted lasted year, and it was such a joy to just skip over there to her place and look on the side bar at her list, so inspiring
