We should count our bless­ings

The Ed­i­tor, Now that I am re­tired, I ap­pre­ci­ate more the good days that fol­low the bad.

Some­times, it’s time spent with a very sick fam­ily mem­ber, try­ing to com­fort here in her weak­ness and pain, and see­ing the grat­i­tude on her smil­ing face. On the Labour Day week­end (at the Tabac Jr.’s Lit­tle Nash­ville Coun­try Fest in Alexan­dria, any coun­try mu­sic fan will agree how sooth­ing and up­lift­ing are “real life” songs, like Coat Of Many Colours, The Dance, How Great Thou Art, and Look at Us, to name a few. What bet­ter way to com­plete this week­end than cel­e­brat­ing a beau­ti­ful Mass of thanks­giv­ing for all God’s bless­ings? We are very for­tu­nate to par­tic­i­pate in this gath­er­ing.

Glo­ria Poirier, Alexan­dria
