“Rest and be thankful.”

~ William Wordsworth.


Its Thanksgiving here in Canada. This morning my heart is filled with gratitude for many things including this beautiful land we call home. Yes, there are burdens, circumstances I wish were otherwise, but there are also blessings that far outweigh them.

Our Thanksgiving plans changed at the last minute which cause some angst but, in the end, we enjoyed a lovely day yesterday marking the occasion Gerry’s parents 73rd wedding anniversary.

Today, putting the garden to bed (yesterday I harvested the remaining beans–of which there were many!–and tomatoes in anticipation of a hard frost) and planting the garlic.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your Canadian family!

    1. Thank you, Marian!
