Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

I love Gourds and pumpkins and warm autumn days and a harvest moon! I love October because it’s my birth month. It’s a celebration all month long! I love warm cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes and long walks. I love the crunching sound the dead leaves make under my feet kicking them up as I walk and the gorgeous colour of autumn leaves surrounding us with orange, yellow, gold, purple and red. It’s beautiful. Autumn is a time for new beginnings.

There are so many reasons to love Fall. For one, Halloween originated from a Celtic festival for the dead called Samhain. It emanates scary haunted ghosts, skeletons and graveyards. It is the day before All Saints Day. Fall is a time for hearty soups and apple OR pumpkin pie and the scent of cinnamon cloves in hot apple cider OR a pumpkin scented candle! I love mini chocolate treats, candy and decorations. O and the witches brew made with dry ice! Some of my favourite snacks are Rice Krispie treats and Frito-lay Poppables.

When I was young and use to go trick or treating, I loved to haul my candy out on the table to look at and savour it. It was in the usual manner that we prayed a blessing over dinner reciting

“Bless us O Lord and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty through Christ Our Lord. Amen”

October 8th is when we celebrate Thanksgiving this year 
but I am deprived with no memories of this feast.
