September. I ask myself what picture that comes up in my mind. Despite Covid, I managed to find some time to connect safely with family and friends and to enjoy the serenity of the water and cottage.
I am grateful for harvest, for fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden, for the way Londoners have stepped up to grow and donate fresh produce to the London Food Bank.
I am grateful that we have the capacity to house Ontarians from the north who are escaping forest fires and smoke.
I am grateful that City staff have helped keep this city functioning despite the challenges we face as we navigate changing Covid restrictions.
We certainly live in challenging times. As we go into the fall, with its cooler weather and beautiful colours, and move forward into school. I am so grateful that Londoners continue to value and respect vaccines, helping us to build strength into our community to pave a way out of this pandemic.
I am so thankful to our health workers who continue to find the strength to provide the foundation of care that we need. May we never take our healthcare system and workers for granted again.
To be grateful means to be appreciative and to be kind. It is so important to remember to take the time, to take a deep breath and reflect on all that we need to be grateful for. I hope you have a chance to do the same.
As always, I can be reached at 226-927-0439, email at email@example.com, or visit my website at annahopkins.ca.
Thanks to all of you,
