Today I am very grateful.
Grateful (on many levels) that Erinn’s husband Dion has been out of the hospital for a couple of weeks now, and that Erinn has been able to return to The Dale.
Grateful that a young man in our community will soon be out of the shelter system, and into subsidized housing, after many months of transience. And honoured that we get to play a small role in helping this to happen.
Grateful that I got to accompany another community member to the signing of the lease for her new, much improved, apartment. We’re already making plans to have tea on her balcony 🙂
Grateful that we’re about to take another trip up to the Zola Community Land, the 2.5 acre plot near Haliburton that friends of The Dale have invited us to use for gardens and retreats. We’re hatching plans for raised beds for veggies and herbs for our Monday lunches this year, and for an outdoor kitchen, walking labyrinth, and yurts in the years to come!
Grateful for a day full of good news, after a long period of time with lots of tragedy and uncertainty.
Grateful for spring!
