November Weekend Events: A Blessed Time Of Year! 11/04-06

As we move into the month of November, it always brings to my mind about Thanksgiving, as of course, it would for most people. But, it really makes me think about all of the things that I “Do” have and maybe not focus so much on what I “Don’t” have.

November, in my opinion, really brings to light how great it is to live here in the High Country, to have the change of the seasons, to enjoy God’s creation and handiwork with the mountains, trees, flowers and wildlife. I haven’t always had the change of seasons in places that I have lived and always longed for it.

November, makes me think of how I am blessed to live where my kids can receive a good, decent, and wholesome education with God-Fearing Teachers and Educators. For the most part, I don’t have to worry about what my kids are being taught, which is not the case where I moved from.

November, makes me think of how I have been blessed with such wonderful friends that can and do share in the good and the bad. And, yes, that is not necessarily up here in the High Country, but areas of the country can be friendlier than others…just saying! I could go on and on, but these are a few of the topics that I find my mind pondering.

Finally, November, is an awesome month, certainly a Blessed Time of Year, and the Holiday of Thanksgiving is just icing on the cake so to speak. I love it and hope it is a great time of year for you as well. Here are some great weekend activities for lots of Fun. Make sure to take advantage of them!
