My husband said this past
weekend that Monday is Canada's
Thanksgiving.They celebrate on the
weekend. It is not the same Pilgrims
but for the homecoming, not harvest,
of Martin Frobisher: explorer of the
Northwest Passage in the late 1500's.
It was to celebrate his long journey and
survival.Later, Henry Hudson didn't make it
back. So I thought about Ann....and her
blog that talks into our lives. Aren't you
thankful for her?!
I am for others that I do know:
Beth, for a wonderful bird walk on Weds.
and her class for my daughter. I praised
the Lord that I could walk at the Greenway
for 2 hours without pain! ( see Emma on the
far left in the back)
Amber, for seeing you more now! You keep
me thinking of how to live well unto the Lord!
Dotsie, for all your encouragement in letters,
emails, and teas! You have put so much into
my daughter's heart too!
Tammy, for your visit this past summer! And
your love for your daughter, math for my
daughter, and hopefully will see you soon
( getting you up here to speak).
Nancy, for new titles of books and digging in
together on the net for how to do all of this
home ~~ school ~~ ing a la Charlotte Mason.
Hope Canada was so very good.
Jennie, your love of Charlotte Mason,
leading our book discussion last year
and digging into those ideas!
Melissa, your motherhood strengthens
me! You know I find myself praying for you
and your family. It's your transparent writing!
And escaping into books. Good ones!
Sara, thank you for your postcards that
lifted me up postsurgery! I got reading
your blog when you posted on Elizabeth
Goudge! Good book titles from you!
I have been changed by this man's work.
