Although, I did not grow these gorgeous veggies myself, they were all grown in my beautiful province – Nova Scotia.
I am grateful to live in Nova Scotia, and I am grateful for my friends who I will be having over to share in my bountiful harvest which was purchased from my local market literally down the street from my home. We will be indulging in turkey, stuffing, rolls, gravy and cranberry sauce. We shall have beer and wine and finish with coffee and pumpkin pie. Stuffed, sleepy and content with swollen bellies from over indulging as one tends to do on these celebratory “meal days”.
I am grateful for the fact that my fridge is full of fresh food and my cupboards groan with canned and dry goods. I am truly blessed. I live in a peaceful country and I am so lucky to be a Canadian.
I plan on sharing in my bounty, although not my fresh produce or cooked goods, but I have tins of food, boxes of crackers and the list goes on. Knowing that 900,000 Canadians cannot afford to buy groceries, I believe it isn’t even a choice for me to help, but more it is my obligation to help those who are in need. I might not be able to give a lot or change a person’s life around, but if we all give a little, we can change many lives, and no child or adult will ever have to go to bed hungry.
I am grateful that I can give to those in need. I am grateful indeed.
Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble gobble!
