Thanksgiving Thoughts

~~~ Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I am thankful for many things in my life, and would like to share them with you. First and foremost, I am thankful for God and the presence He has in my life. It is wonderful to know that He knows who I am and shares my trials and joys with me. ~ I am thankful for my husband and for the partner that he is. He accepts me for who I am, loves me, and takes on the world with me. I love him so much! ~ I am so thankful for my little boys, for who they are and all they teach me. I am grateful to have them in our family. ~ I am thankful for our extended families; I love each and every one of them and this journey wouldn't be the same or as complete if any one of them weren't in our family. Every member brings a uniqueness and is an essential part of this unit. I love them all. ~ I am also very grateful for my dog, Diesel; he may just be a dog but I love him so much. He reminds me to slow down and take a moment to play; he loves me unconditionally even when I don't have time for him; he is ALWAYS here for me. He is a great family pet, good to my boys, and I couldn't picture our little family without him. ~ I am thankful that my husband works hard for us and provides a roof over our heads, food and clothes, and comforts that we take for granted. ~ I am thankful to live in Canada; I love this nation of ours and love the freedoms we enjoy every day. This is indeed a beautiful country and I love it all, mountains and prairies. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. ~ I am thankful for my friends; near and far, you enrich my life and I love you all. You are all amazing and individual, I love you for who you are and everything you are.

I wish everyone (even you State-side Canadians) a very happy Thanksgiving and hope you can get the warm fuzzies too as you think of all you are thankful for! :)

Great post, Karen. I so miss Cdn. Thanksgiving. One of my most homesick times of the year. Your post made me smile. (and my brother, Jon has a dog named Diesel
