Today, I’m thankful for the annual reminder that gratitude and thankfulness can extend far beyond November into each and every day.
So, although this year’s Thirty Days of Thankful is coming to a close, it doesn’t mean I’m going to stop feeling thankfulness and gratitude.
I’m thankful for all the readers who have gone on this journey.
Have any realizations come to you?
How are you going to carry thankfulness and gratitude with you throughout the year?
The Harvest Moon
It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes
And roofs of villages, on woodland crests
And their aerial neighborhoods of nests
Deserted, on the curtained window-panes
Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes
And harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests!
Gone are the birds that were our summer guests,
With the last sheaves return the laboring wains!
All things are symbols: the external shows
Of Nature have their image in the mind,
As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves;
The song-birds leave us at the summer’s close,
Only the empty nests are left behind,
And pipings of the quail among the sheaves.
Think. Connect. Elevate.
