If I could tell the story in words,
I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.

Being the mother of 3 sons, I had to wait until they got married to know the joy of having a daughter. But my daughter-in-laws were worth waiting for. Beautiful, inteligent, wise, loving women all of them. I’m so blessed. I wonder if as well as National Daughter’s Day there is a National Daughter-in-Laws Day?

Today is also set aside to remember International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons. After 3 years of being in the middle of “hostage politics”, the 2 Michaels were finally returned from China. Thank goodness we weren’t exchanging nuclear bombs with China.

We also celebrate Johny Appleseed Day today. So like Johny Appleseed, spread goodness everywhere you go. Plant seeds of food for thought if not literally for food.

Fall colours are starting to bloom across the trees showing us how beautiful letting go can be as they prepare for the cold winter.

It’s a great time to have family photos done at any of the wonderful outdoor parks. This morning I’ll be hiking through St Clair Conservation paths with my sister and our dogs. This afternoon I’ll be working at the Civic Centre Gardens in London taking family photos for a good friend and previous co-worker.

Tomorrow will be the first indoor church service at Strathroy United Church since COVID-19 restrictions were imposed in March 2020.
