thankful for pumpkins :: The Joy Challenge

Okay, this might sound silly. Grateful for pumpkins?! Well, yes. Because when you see a pumpkin – doesn’t it just make you smile? The sunny color. The ridiculously gorgeous shape? The mini pumpkins are adorable. And you can tuck them in fabulous, surprising places around the house. And then there are those grand, heirloom pumpkins – mixed with grays, greens and creams – oh my. Stately and so dignified. Just to have one sitting out … all quiet and proud,

I’m grateful for pumpkins. They signal the season that calls for thanksgiving.
