Thank you God

Here is Deacon Will's beautiful homily at Mass this morning. He tells us that the origins of Canada's Thanksgiving actually predates the American Thanksgiving.
He also tells us a touching story of a whale who was thankful for being rescued.

I have so many things to be thankful for.

Thanks to God for family and friends, for those who were with us yesterday, and those who weren't.

Thanks for the birds who feed in our yard.

Thanks for the deer who live in the woods at our cabin.

Thanks for the fences that adorn Canada's roads.

Thanks for the candles from my beautiful sister Paula, molded from clay.

Thanks for the yummy pumpkin cheesecake made by my youngest sister Barb. And thanks to God for saving most of it from drowning in the sink when I dropped it.

Thank you God, for all of this, and for everything else. I am truly blessed.


  1. That's great Patty! Thank you God for Patty, Fred, Barb, Fr. Hasina and all the wonderful people in my life, here and in heaven.
    By the way Patty, they are candle holders, not candles.
