It is Canadian Thanksgiving and the perfect time to say what we are thankful for.
I am thankful for:
My family and best friends. I take them for granted sometimes, don’t call as often as I should, or don’t do enough for them. Thankfully, they are still near and dear to me and make me feel special whenever we see each other.
The new friends I have made this year. While the number is small, it has been surprising and wonderful.
The country I live in. It isn’t without its flaws and it is no paradise, but I like the accepting tone it has taken as of late. There is a world of diversity out there and I am glad we have invited it to our doorstep.
Having enough to eat, having enough to keep a roof over my head, and having enough to share.
The readers of my blog; especially the ones who write comments back. Without you, I would have given this up long ago.
The bloggers that I follow. You entertain and enlighten me every day.
The freedom I have to write what I want without fear of persecution. I might not be at all edgy, but there are so many out there whose perceived crimes were merely disagreeing with those in power.
My many interesting (good and bad) experiences this year. I have crossed one thing off the bucket list….of course I have added a few more.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving. For those of you who don’t celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, next year, I think you should. Think of it like St. Patrick’s Day. On that day, everyone could be a little Canadian. Just say sorry when someone bumps into you.
