Well, it’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. The celebrations are on!! For us, we begin the weekend with a 75th birthday celebration for a dear old (as in we’ve known him for a long, long time) friend. Then Sunday we’ll be sharing dinner with our friends-in-law (son-in-laws family, who are now our friends as well as semi-related). Sadly DD and DSIL aren’t here to celebrate with us. Monday DH’s family will be here, and our DDIL’s family (more friends-in-law) will join us as well. It’s a full weekend with lots of family, lots of friends, lots of fun, lots of food. I hope that all of you have as much family, friends, fun and food.
This is a time to remember how truly thankful we are for all the blessings that have come our way. And how very thankful I am for:
Husband – 1
Parents – 2 (remaining)
Children – 3 – plus their spouses
Siblings – 7
Nieces and nephews, and grand-n&n – 20
Marriage – 38 years
Life – do I dare say how many years, well what the heck – 59 (almost)
Friends – well, how do you count them?
Home and neighbors and love and freedom and health and happiness and joy and
My Lord and Savior, who gives all of this to me!!
The picture above is one of the displays at our local show garden – truly speaks of fall to me. This is my favorite season of the year.
Our trip yesterday (last of the season) through the gardens was candy to the eye – still a lot of beautiful color:
And then there’s the water features – no season to them:
Happy Fall. Happy Thanksgiving. Blessings, Peg
