Last weekend was our Thanksgiving here in Canada. The weather was absolutely beautiful, that it was actually hard to believe that it was October. The weekend was full of all kinds of preparations, but I just love this time of year.
We usually try and get out and enjoy the sites, and visit the festivals in the area, when the weather allows it. This year, the weather was PERFECT and it really allowed us to get out and enjoy each other's time, and to reflect on all those things that we truly are thankful for.
I am so thankful for having the time with my family that I do. As the boys grow older, I find myself missing being with them and doing family things, but it also makes me thankful for those bits and pieces of time that we do get to spend time together.
I am thankful everyday for the love that I have found with Rob.
I am thankful for my sight. To view nature's beauty this time of year is something that brings me much joy.
I am thankful for knowing that God believes that I am strong, as he only let's things happen that he knows you are strong enough to endure. And I definitely have been tested as of late.
I am thankful that I have my father still with me, and that I get the pleasure of being with him every day. Together we are able to remember MOM and keep her memory alive.
I am thankful for all my friends, both online and off, who have ever been there to listen to me and were there to understand and support me.
Take a moment in your day and reflect about the little things that you are thankful for. You will feel sooooooo good afterwards. TRUST ME!!!
