Frosty mornings, scarves, and mittens made from thrift-store wool sweaters.
Gold-yellow-orange-red: colours that fall, twirl, loiter on lawns…and emblazon horizons before dusk and at dawn.
Candle-light breakfast, hand-crocheted afghan, wood cookstove, and Earl Grey latte.
Pumpkins and squash and orchard-run apples.
Combines at night: bright-eyed monsters methodically shaving fields down to winter stubble.
Farmers, whose long-day labours fill our tables with abundance.
Quiet conversations, laughter, encouragement, treasured moments with family and friends.
Gaggles of geese with their month-long goodbyes strung across blue-grey skies.
Perpetually cheerful chickadees and comically upside-down nuthatches.
Seasons and rhythms of learning and growing.
Grace upon grace for each new day.
Continually giving thanks because there is never not something to be thankful for.
