A Thought, a Prayer

As I mentioned in the previous post this weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada; a time of joining with friends and family to give thanks for the many things that we have been graced with. And it is also a time to think of family and friends who are enduring difficulties and trials.

When I was living in Italy it was an easy thing to drop into a nearby church and light a candle as a way of remembering those I love and care about in their time of need.   It is not quite as easy now but that does not mean that I can't light a virtual candle and tonight as I give thanks for my blessings  remember in my thoughts and prayers my dear friend Elizabeth, her darling Kirk and the girls.  I am holding them close in my heart and my thoughts, I only wish there was more that I could do.

For those of you who pray I ask that your remember them in your prayers - or if you are not given to prayer then pause for a moment and as you give thanks for your many blessings think of them.

Assuming we're talking about the same Elizabeth, I have so missed her inspiring posts, not to mention her superb poems, and I guessed there must be something up (indeed, I think she intimated as much).

Whatever it is of course - irreligious as I am - I'll light a candle for her and her family. Do send her my warm regards as someone who only knows her through her words.
