The current issueThe Joy of Tomatoes: Preparing for Spring Planting
by Hélène Tremblay-Boyko

With any luck we are now passed the rigours of winter, and what a roller coaster time it has been! During those cold snaps in early 2022, my thoughts were turned to spring planting. While most of the vegetables I cultivate are seeded directly to the garden, there is one crop we have successfully started in the house before transplanting: tomatoes. By the end of April or the beginning of May, it is time to get those seeds sprouted and started. Although tomatoes have mixed benefits, they generally do quite well in our Saskatchewan soils and weather conditions, and they are so versatile! For the latter two reasons, they hold a preferential place in my garden.

A Little Hunger Can Go a Long Way
by Sussanna Czeranko, ND

We have always marvelled at the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself, working at optimum levels to carry out the functions needed. For example, when we feel sick, our appetite diminishes and may be completely absent, allowing our bodies a well-needed rest for self-healing. Our bodies are designed to heal. It doesn’t always require expensive, often intrusive interventions to maintain good health. In fact, the best remedies and medicines are freely accessible to us, such as daily sunshine, clean water, restful sleep, healthy breathing practices, and the calming stillness of Mother Nature. There is also “fasting.”

Regulating the Nervous System and Destressing with Creative Therapy
by Mandy Hollands Ish

There are many day-to-day stresses people experience, being late for an appointment, sitting in traffic, trying to help kids with homework, and at times these can feel overwhelming. Add in the stress of a sick family member, the death of a loved one, loss of a beloved pet, relationships, various abuses, anxiety, depression, grief, or any other occurrence that depletes us physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, and we have a situation where a lot of people are just scraping by, barely coping, or completely exhausted, drained, and feeling hopeless, lost, lonely, and sad. Life can be a lot.

Where There is Life There is Hope
by Peg Beaton

Healing shares the personal story of a family’s journey through loss and grief to help others understand the grieving process and ultimately heal. In February 1969, I was a young nun of 24, working in a residential school in Lejac, BC. I was asked to speak at the International Woman’s Day of Prayer in the community of Fraser Lake. The topic was WORLD PEACE. After prayer and meditation about my presentation, I came to the realization that there would never be peace in the world until there was peace in the hearts of each of us. This was the beginning of my mission to be a facilitator of peace to people. My intention is that each person I come in contact with will be a little more at peace from our encounter.

Calling On Each Other
by Laurie Renton

During the difficult times in the last few years, with COVID and all the changes we have faced, friendships (relationships) are so important. Yet it’s during difficult times that we will often hesitate to call someone when we are feeling down, or going through a series of challenges. The main reason being that we don’t want to bother them.

Compassion: The Ultimate Gift to Receive
by Andrea (Ann) Austin

Having compassion for oneself is the ultimate conundrum we face as a human species. It blocks our willingness to receive, receive love, and let’s be real, love is the ONLY reason we came here. Everything else is a distraction. Whoops missed that part for most of life until the age of 42. And you?

What a winter we have had in our province! It’s one of the most severe ones I’ve experienced in my life. The bone-chilling cold temperatures would take my breath away as soon as I stepped out the door. The consistent snowfalls often prevented us from leaving our home for 3 or 4 days until the grader would clear them. Last year’s winter was a piece of cake compared to this one. It has also been very hard on the domestic and wild animals, who brave the elements and somehow manage to survive in the extreme cold. I wonder how they do it. We’ve also been feeding the birds and are they ever hungry little critters, cleaning up the feed in record time each day!
