The last months of the year are marked by a pretty special spirit of generosity. As the leaves fall from the trees and the snow piles up on the sidewalks, there’s something in the air that reminds us to be giving. The best way to warm ourselves against a dreary winter is to see the good in the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson once advised, “cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” Stories included in this episode:  Harvest Every year, a young Kevin helps his grandparents prepare for the Fall Harvest feast.
