We live in a land of plenty.
There is abundance all around us.
Sometimes it is beyond our reach, but often that is because we aren’t really intent upon stretching for it.
But when I look in my pantry, and on the shelves of my canning cupboard – and in my freezer, I see such bounty set aside for use this winter. Strawberries and cherries, apples, and apples, and apples, blueberries, and pesto and jelly, and dried and canned tomatoes.
And in my flour cupboard, rye, whole wheat, pumpernickle,pastry, white and graham flour- all ready to make countless loaves of bread.
And quarts of broth – frozen and ready to be the base of marvelous soups.
I think I must know how my grandmother felt after a summer’s work and the fall’s harvest. I feel well prepared. And blessed.
