Providing Comfort

Freezing temperatures have made their way to where I live -- snow flurries on Tuesday morning and the winter wardrobe made its debut on Wednesday.

A bowl of hot soup seems to be the balm for the cold. This is a butternut squash and apple soup {the apples came from an apple picking adventure} garnished with a dollop of sour cream and a few pepitas.  

As I savor this, my heart is full. I have everything I need to keep warm  -- a delightful meal, a scarf and a heavy jacket when outdoors, a throw and an extra blanket when indoors. They may be basic but I often take these for granted.

I know you've heard about Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines exactly one week ago. Typhoons are not strangers to the Philippines. But this one was different. So much devastation and death. The pictures and stories are heartbreaking.

Many survivors lost loved ones. They lost their homes and all of their possessions. How could one ever start anew?

Let's all be grateful for all that we have.  Maybe say a prayer for all the victims, too? And if you have the means, share a little. That would be TADA!

Wishing you all a good weekend!
