Not surprising for this time of year up here in the Ottawa Valley, it snowed yesterday. Not flurries, like had been predicted, but eight centimeters of snow. It was treacherous driving, especially since I had borrowed my mother-in-law’s car (no winter tires). Although the roads had been newly-plowed, it was white-knuckle driving for about 15 kilometers. Once home, we were able to enjoy the beautiful white sparkling snow.
This week’s question: For what are you most thankful this year?
“Intense love does not measure; it just gives.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.) I’m extremely thankful for my husband. I feel so blessed to have a husband who makes small and large sacrifices on a daily basis and who loves me unconditionally.
“Let love and faithfulness never leave my children, but bind these twin virtues around their necks and write them on the tablet of their hearts.” (Proverbs 3:3) I am also grateful for the love of my children!
