I have been thinking a lot lately about how fortunate I am to live in Canada. I truly feel blessed to have open space, a roof over my head, a wonderful family, and a full belly everyday. So many in other parts of the world don’t have all of the necessities that we take for granted, like clean water, a comfortable place to live, and enough money to send their children to school.
Where I live, I am blessed to be part of a community that values all that we have and still looks to help others whenever they can, whether by lending an ear, sharing a meal, or raising funds for a good cause.
I have been thinking about how blessed I feel to do the work that I do. I have a plan for the upcoming holiday season. It is to donate $5.00 from a series of mugs that I am developing to a good cause, whether it is our foster family in India, a soup kitchen, or a food bank. They are intended to create a pause in our lives, as they will each have something written on them. So far, I have come up with Joy, Love, Peace, Faith and Hope. If you have any words that you would like to add I would love to hear them.
The inside of the mug is glazed red and the outside is glazed in a light yellow. Both glazes are food safe as well as microwave and dishwasher safe. If there any other colour combinations that you would like to see, please let me know.
