It's that special time of year again - cool crisp days and leaves turning brilliant colours. It is a time for families to get together. Hubby and I are looking forward to our son, Eric, visiting and sharing his adventures of his first month working in the big city of Toronto. He is looking forward to the peaceful quiet and beauty of our village, or in his words, " Trees, Mom, I am looking forward to seeing trees again." This is the time of year to reflect and think of all that we are thankful for. Have a wonderful, happy Thanksgiving!
