I've been tagged.........WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?


So what are you Thankful for?? Think I'll tag Shirley, Sass and Dawn and see what they are thankful for!!

Well I recently posted things that I was thankful for, during our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, but I am going to share some other things with you all.

I am thankful that I have lived the life that I have and learned so much along the way. Sometimes I wish things could have been different, but I realize that all things happen for a reason, and I feel that I am a much stronger and more knowledgable person because of the way that things have happened.

I am thankful that I have great friends around me, both online and offline. They truly help to make my life a brighter, happier place.

I am thankful to have met and married someone that I truly believe is my soulmate and destiny. Although he can make me nuts at times, I can't imagine my life without him.

I am thankful that I had the parents I did. They have taught me so much and are the reason I am the person I am today! They taught us what TRUE love really was, and that money can not buy happiness......although it is a necessary evil at times.
I love them both so dearly! I MISS YOU MOM!!!

And I am thankful that I have 2 beautiful children, who have grown to be strong young men with goals and thoughts of their own. Although not everything they do makes me happy, I respect that they can stand on their own two feet and make decisions on their own, and also correct things when they are wrong!

Now, I will tag, Diana, Rachel and Charlee!

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day, a day of which we should all give our thanks to those who have fought for our freedom. Whether in the past or present, each and every soldier that has devoted their time to serve our country, we should always be thankful.

Please remember that it is because of the work that they do that we are able to live a life of such freedoms. Please remember that many of these soldiers did NOT come home. And please remember that we owe these veterans our utmost respect and honour.

Hold your head up high, and be proud to be a Canadian!

For me, I would personally like to take a moment to say THANK those soldiers that lost their lives, and to those that are still in the fight for freedom and peace.

I have many ancestors who served our country, many came home, and some did not. Tomorrow I will remember each and every one of them, along with those soldiers that are of no relation to me at all!

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae (1872-1918)
