The Harvest is in. The root cellar is bursting. The pantry is full of canned fruits. The meats have been smoked. The woodpile is overflowing – and we’re all hoping we’ll survive the winter.
In the past, this time of year was very important. Having a full harvest and plenty of food and wood on hand meant you had a good chance of living to see the spring. If food was scarce, or if the harvest was meager you had some hard choices ahead if you were going to survive.
So November has traditionally been a time to take an inventory, see what you had on hand and be grateful.
In today’s world we have much to be grateful for but it’s not usually a matter of life and death… or is it?
This month we challenge you to find something to be grateful for every single day. Write it down at the end of the day. It doesn’t have to been anything earth shattering (in the past an extra ear of corn might have been the difference between life and death). Try not to repeat. Look for something new to be grateful for every single day.
At the end of the month, look back on what you’ve written. No matter what your November was like… you’ll have stockpiled a pantry full of positive memories and emotions to get you through the winter.
