Last night, after a full day of driving, we arrived safely at my Uncle's beautiful cabin on the lake. A quiet, serene place; as my sister put it, "Its quite magical."
Being here, reminds me to appreciate life. I think of all I have to be thankful for; our health, our happiness, our families; near and far. Even more, that we are able to spend time with family members, whom we don't see often enough.
Tonight, is a night for Thanksgiving.
Tomorrow, see will spend some time setting up for the annual Craft fair here in town. Another one of my blessings.
Four years ago, the town chamber of commerce approved my application to participate in the Fort Kent Craft Fair. This is a juried fair, and is not easy to get into. Many years ago, my grandfather sold his paintings at this same fair. Now, I am privileged to take part in the same tradition. It is a bittersweet feeling for me each year.
I sit here by the wood stove, the gentle warmth filling me, and reflect.
