We spent the day in the "valley", picking apples and pumpkins, going through corn mazes and playing in bales of hay. The weather was warm and beautiful and our cheeks are rosey from the fresh air. Fresh air is fleeting, though I wish it would remain. This is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and we are thankful for so many things. I am mostly thankful for supportive and uplifting people right now. And for the fact that my brother remains safe and is getting treatment.

I will be around to visit your blogs as soon as I get the chance; in the meantime, thank you all so much for your support.

    Those are good things to be thankful for, Cathy.

    I'm happy to hear your brother is back to recovery. I hope it continues.

    Have you thought of getting him a journal, so he could write his thoughts down, even if he doesn't blog them?
