Thankful for Apples

blog, North America, Travel

If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much.

This weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving. Sometimes I think this holiday has lost its meaning; honestly, a weekend revolving around copious amounts of food can sometimes get lost in translation. I think that, then I see so many people writing and reflecting on things they are thankful for and I know this “holiday” isn’t futile. It’s not about turkey or counting blessings but a life of gratitude – appreciating people and things that matter. For health, for family, for friends, for music, for school, for tea, for kind souls, for compassionate people – I am thankful.

Saturday morning I was particularly thankful for apples! Apples are my favourite fruit and this weekend I have been blessed to have an abundance of apples. I went apple picking with my family and came home with 6 pies and 4 bags of apples. I am thankful for the abundance of apples, for quality time with my family, for sunny autumn days in Ontario and blessings that have been given to me.
