Giving Thanks


Where would I be without my family?  I am guilty of taking family for granted.  I know they will always be there for me.  Thanksgiving is one of those special holidays we celebrate all the abundance in our lives with family.  Old fashioned get togethers with turkey and ham in the oven, walking into my parent's home is cause for celebration. Days go by quickly and before you know the children become adults and the family grows.  New members come into our family unit and the celebrations are larger and more lively. 

I must remember each day to give thanks for those who are always there for me. 




The Devon Turkey Chase race on Monday was another successful event with Chris Merriott from Merriott Fitness and her team of volunteers.  What a day!  The chill in the air did not stop families from participating in this worth while event raising money for charity.  I was very lucky to be the chief grilled cheese flipper close to the heat.  For any of you who have not experienced the North Saskatchewan river valleys at this time of year and all the colors, I encourage you to take a drive and enjoy the beauty so close at hand.  Chris's events are always an inspiration for me to start running, work out more and simply have fun!  Marilyn
