October is the month during which, over dinner together with family, we traditionally express our gratitude for a good harvest, food on our tables and the good fortune to live in a land where, for the most part, peace reigns, and work and food are available. This year, though many of us are struggling with even the basics, the cohort around our Thanksgiving tables may be smaller, and some of us have suffered losses, we know that we still have much for which we can be grateful. In our community of Deer Ridge, we would like to express thanks for the
• volunteers who keep things running,
• community that supports one another,
• friends who come out to help when we need them, sometimes fully unexpectedly,
• family who love and comfort us,
• neighbours who look out for us and give us a hand with things from time to time,
• strength to keep going, or sustained, and maybe even regained, health,
• complete strangers with helping hands that reach out to give assistance, and
• frontline workers who keep us safe.
Thank you to all of you who make this a wonderful place to live. Your hard work and thoughtfulness is valued and appreciated.
