Every year we put up our fall tree that is decorated in leaves and a scarecrow. Don, our maintenance man, used a tree branch and a can of silver paint to create the tree. Although everyone has always loved the tree, this year we want to add a new decoration to the tree. We are asking everyone who visits from November 1 to November 28, which is Thanksgiving Day, to add a leaf. Each leave will represent the slogan Today I am THANKFUL because….
Here at Colby Retirement we are so thankful for so many things but the one thing that really sticks out is that we are thankful for our extended familyand we are blessed that we all have each other.
“Come, little leaves,” said the wind one day.” Come down to the meadow and we shall play. Put on your dresses of red and gold, for summer is past and the days grow cold”. Dancing and leaping the leaves went along, until winter called them to end their sweet song. Soon, fast asleep in their earthy beds, the snow lay a coverlet over their heads.
