With thanksgiving in my heart I look back to these last few weeks. The love and help I received from family and friends is unmeasurable. It probably was the most difficult move in some ways, but on the other hand I am looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with my daughter, granddaughter and great grand daughters and their families.

When I glance around my world, there are so many things for which I am thankful. My health, and I no longer take that for granted, my home, hand picked, my family- an eclectic assortment of individuals that challenge me to growth and provide support- and this world in which I live. And I am thankful.

This morning when I was reading my devotional I realized it was very much applicable to me. It talked about seasons in our life. We remember when we took our child the first day to school. Before we knew it we helped them pack their suitcase and they went off to college. We moved on in life and then realized that we needed some help ourselves and the reverse role was played. Now Mom might need the children to take care of her and a new season has begun.

Tomorrow night my children will come and empty my home and take me and my belongings to Alberta. There more children are waiting to unload and help Mom to adjust in her new home and the start of this new season in her life. What a blessing my children are to me.

I will miss my friends here very much but as it says in Ecclesiastes 3: 11 “He has made everything beautiful in His time.” He brought me to Swan River for a reason. So also He will direct my path in Alberta.

My next message comes from Alberta. Blessings to all.
