I'm thankful

pumpkin-pieces I have SOOOO much to be thankful for. And Thanksgiving is a wonderful reason to celebrate with friends and name those things. I have so much abundance and richness in my life. An abundance of good people, family and friends. An abundance of good food. A lovely husband. An adorable son and a great God! Last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving. We enjoyed some local harvests including my first pumpkin pie - which I determined to make from scratch in protest to canned pumpkin.

I just love this poem. I followed this pumpkin pie recipe, making the base as well.


  1. He IS adorable. Such a cutie!
    And good on you for protesting canned pumpkin. I'd never heard of such a thing till I started poking around US blogs. I was horrified at it's existence. :)

  2. Isn't he? Just a little bias of course. I know Lauren, about the pumpkin. I find canned pumpkin especially absurd considering REAL fresh pumpkins are in season at this time of year, and thanksgiving is traditionally a celebration to thank God for the recent harvest. So sad how traditions get obscured and people forget why they are doing what they are doing.


Thank you for visiting and for your comments and thoughts, it is really lovely to hear from you.
