Snow at the beginning of October? Yes! Snow at the beginning of October!
The weather has been pretty gloomy, I haven’t seen the sun for over 10 days. It all started with rain. Rain that caused a swimming pool in the yard then it froze leading to ice and snow.
Don’t get me wrong, I really like snow but I prefer snow when the sun is out as well. As I mentioned, it’s been very gloomy, dark and I would even describe it as depressing. Snow, snow, snow and more snow, hey! Let is snow! Let it snow! Let is sno-oh-o!
Winter is not here yet, I refuse to accept that! I’m a strong believer of Fall, a time for pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing and fresh veggies. This year the fresh veggies are a bit different, we have sweet carrots (because they froze), frozen tomatoes and potatoes that are still in the garden because we can’t get them under all that snow.
Fall is also a great reminder to be thankful as we just celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving. What do I have that I can share with others? What am I thankful for?
I’m thankful for my experience in the north, I keep learning so much and it’s been a great opportunity to strengthen my faith and to share my faith with others. This experience has taught me to have complete trust in God and acknowledge that He will provide what is needed. So many times I had doubts but God always puts the right people on my path. Thank you God for being so awesome.
As much as I say it’s gloomy I do have to say that I can appreciate the snow, it’s brought much joy to the young people who made snowmen, forts and had snowball fights. And it even made me laugh at one point when my mom quoted this very famous movie and said Do you want to build a snowman? (typical grandma, quoting movies for kids)
I’m thankful for people encouraging me to change, we’re called to always change. As Matthew Kelly says Become the best version of yourself. I don’t want to be the same person as I was yesterday but I want to more in love with God, I want to accept myself better and keep on fulfilling my purpose. Thanks for the encouragement as it’s been bringing my joy and peace.
I’m thankful for my family because they love me. I can ask for their help, their guidance and they cook for me when I visit. (I’m hungry). Thank you God for my family.
I’m thankful for the beauty in nature. I’m blessed to be in north and actually have trees around. Have you ever went out for a jog or a hike and noticed all the beauty around us? This is beauty we take for granted. Thank you God for sharing your beauty in nature with us.
What are you thankful for?
