In my part of Michigan, the leaves are just beginning to change color on the first day of autumn, hinting at glorious colors to follow.

I did not know until a few days ago that Thanksgiving as a national holiday in the U.S. originated through the persuasive efforts of an early American feminist (and author of the children’s song, “Mary Had a Little Lamb”) During the Civil War, she convinced Abraham Lincoln to proclaim the customary holiday as a national day of Thanksgiving in the midst of those great trials. And so we celebrate it today.
