Recently, my husband (Ian) asked me where I wanted to go for our Saturday morning walk.
Usually we stroll around our neighborhood on weekends,
but I wanted to visit Melda’s Marsh,
since we hadn’t been there for a few years.
This time we walked the entire loop around it–so lovely.
Melda’s Marsh was named in remembrance of Melda Buchanan (1924-2004).
In 1994 the Province honored her with the Minister’s Environmental Award
for her conservation work throughout British Columbia.
She was known for her enthusiastic efforts
on behalf of nature conservation and animal rights.
Melda was witty, intelligent, and generous.
I’m grateful for her contribution in making sure this beautiful place was preserved.
Each of us can play a part in leaving behind beauty in nature, in art, or inspiration.
A first step may be to ask for Divine guidance and strength.
I don’t know if Melda was a woman of faith,
but I definitely saw a glimpse of eternity as I walked alongside Melda’s Marsh.
