The Quest for Balance
Mid-April, snowbound, churches closed, flights cancelled--spring in Canada! Weather alerts said this would be a historic storm and warned against unnecessary travel--f reezing rain already had wreaked havoc with hydro wires and highways. It had been an unus...

For today's sunshine--so gorgeous, life-bringing and joyous! Morning entry in my gratitude journal: April 23, 2018  I had no idea that the day would bring horror and devastation. The very sunshine I had rejoiced in, brought others to a Toronto street on whi...
