Although this video is a few years old, it captures the essence of Thanksgiving perfectly. I hope all have a very special day. It is a day to give thanks for all the little and big blessings we have in our lives.

Today, I came upon an awesome article that I had to post. It again shows the triumph of the human spirit. I hope the article warms your heart as much as it did mine.
Have a good weekend, all!

I want to thank the outpouring of support everyone has shown me after my first column appeared in The Sentinel last Sunday. It’s just another step in the Journey of Hope for me, and what a journey it is!
Have a blessed weekend!

For the past few weeks, I have been captivated by the PBS Roosevelt series. The quote below by particularly spurred my interest because it seems like a recipe for success, and the Roosevelts certainly embody many!
“Get action. Do things. Be sane. Don't fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are and be somebody...”
Something to think about as we go into the weekend!

I saw this video and was truly amazed. It once again shows how determination can move the highest mountain and prove that individuals can do anything if they set their minds to achieve their goal. I hope you enjoy the clip as much as I did!

As you all may already know, I love the month of September. The crispness of the air revives my spirit somehow. So, this week, I chose to share one of my poems with you. I hope you enjoy it and the weather!
By Amy Lowell
This afternoon was the colour of water falling through sunlight;
The trees glittered with the tumbling of leaves;
The sidewalks shone like alleys of dropped maple leaves,
And the houses ran along them laughing out of square, open windows.
Under a tree in the park,
Two little boys, lying flat on their faces,
Were carefully gathering red berries
To put in a pasteboard box.
Some day there will be no war,
Then I shall take out this afternoon
And turn it in my fingers,
And remark the sweet taste of it upon my palate,
And note the crisp variety of its flights of leaves.
To-day I can only gather it
And put it into my lunch-box,
For I have time for nothing
But the endeavour to balance myself
Upon a broken world.

Here’s a quote from one of my favorite books, Anne of Green Gables. It certainly encapsulates a firm belief of mine. There’s always scope for the imagination, that’s for sure!
“Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there? But am I talking too much? People are always telling me I do. Would you rather I didn't talk? If you say so I'll stop. I can stop when I make up my mind to it, although it's difficult.”
