The 2014 Gratitude Giveaways

This giveaway has ended!

Autumn is my favorite time of year! I have fond memories of life on our farm with my family, harvesting what we had worked so hard to produce through the year. I remember peeling and coring apple after apple for bottled apples and applesauce, my mouth watering for one of my mom’s homemade apple pies.  I remember the canning season coming to a close as we gathered the last of the squash to store in the cellar, and then we would finally put the garden to bed for the dormant winter months ahead.

Memories of my dad’s hardworking hands, my mother’s gentle smile, and my siblings’ playful banter take me back to a picturesque time when life was slower and more people had a sense of gratitude instead of entitlement.

But most of all, I remember the love, contentment, and peace that radiated from our home. I am so very thankful for these memories and all that I have been given.   

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” — Albert Schweitzer
