Nation Of Farmers

Barely a half-century ago, Canada was a nation of farmers, and autumn was a
celebration of thanks for the harvest.

Today, it is hard to find fields dotted with sheaves of grain. Our harvests have changed, and most Canadians have no living memory of farm life. But the fields continue to bear, the farmers who are left continue to tend their livestock and their land.

And each October, we have a glimmer of memory of the cycle of our seasons:
a seed sown, a crop harvested, and a feast to give thanks for our good fortune.

The air has begun to chill, and the fields are laying still for the winter, but on Thanksgiving weekend we will gather with our families in the warm shelter of our homes to give thanks. For harvest, for home and for each other.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
