  5. Thankful that I am gainfully employed;
  6. Thankful that I live in North America, living in peace and comfort;
  7. Thankful for the food on our table;
  8. Thankful for my mother’s recovery from cancer surgery;
  9. Thankful that I can see magnificent sunrises and sunsets;

I awoke to drizzle last Friday morning and as I headed out to work, the sun rose.  It had a few minutes to majestically peak between the horizon and the clouds.  I had my camera with me to capture its beauty.  Within 10 minutes, it had risen to higher than the clouds and it was cloudy once again.  I share this with you and am thankful for all my followers!

Captured on my way to work.

And just a quickly, it was gone again behind the clouds of an overcast day…
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and Happy Columbus Day to all my American friends and happy greetings to the rest of my global friends 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
