Canadian Thanksgiving and a Cranberry Harvest

Today in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving with all the traditional fixings shared with family and friends.  We have so much to be thankful for.  In our family this year we celebrated the wedded union of two of our sons and their lovely brides.  We live in a beautiful country with religious freedom, the freedom of speech, the right to be a free country; all of which were fought for by soldiers on our behalf.  We are enjoying a glorious autumn season this year with foliage so brilliant in colour that my memory card has been filled.  

I am thankful for so much.  My family, my faith, good friends, peace, and so much more.  I really truly am blessed.  Though I wish we could all be together this day, all our children and their partners, grandparents, family and friends; you are all in my heart and I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

In celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving, I am sharing a video I discovered about the harvest and process of cranberries from the field to the end product.  I saw something similar on tv yesterday, and while I couldn't find the identical video, this one is very informative for all you cranberry lovers.  After all, what is a turkey dinner without cranberries?

From all of us gathered at the table, we wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
