I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.
"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I finished this small tapestry woven with cotton and thread which measures 2 3/16" wide by 4 1/4" long. I feel so thankful that last week I didn't step on that upturned rusty nail half stuck in a tiny piece of rotting wood. I didn't see it in a pile of duff gathered last summer that somebody else stacked up for me to burn. I know the owners are innocent and never realized how dangerous this can be and I am thankful for my Protector who kept me unharmed even though I walked over that pile a number of times labouring to get into moved onto the fire. Even when I reached down with my wool mittened hand to scoop up duff I was kept from harm. Eventually I saw it. This isn't the only blessing. There are little answers to little prayers and an answer that I have been waiting for a very long time. With new clarity and insight I feel like a bird freed from a cage and I am thankful for that too. Isn't it not true that birds like blessings can bring us joy? What are you thankful for?
