Day 55. Thanksgiving in Canada


Source

Here in Canada we're heading into our Thanksgiving weekend. Although the official day is Monday, many people tend to celebrate at various times over the weekend. It may be gloomy and cool outside, but the promise of enjoying roast turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings with family and friends brings a warm and festive feeling inside.

I think many of us practice the art of being grateful all through the year, but there is something extra-special about taking time to focus on all the blessings we do enjoy. I've started my list here, and I think I'll keep working on it over the weekend. It would be interesting to see how long it would take to reach 100! You are welcome to join me....
1. The love of a wonderful husband
2. My mom, my family, many wonderful friends
3. Joy and the ability to laugh often
4. The ability to see, taste, smell, hear, and touch
5. The ability to read and enjoy many wonderful books
6. Plenty to eat
7. Peace in my heart
8. Sudsy hot baths on cold evenings
9. Hot buttered toast and poached eggs
10. Roast turkey, stuffing, and cranberries
11. Knowing that God loves me, no matter what!

When I read my list to my hubby, he wanted to add brussel sprouts...well, each to their own (smile).

Wishing you a beautiful day,
Brenda
