Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a wonderful and special Thanksgiving tomorrow. Keith and I have so much to be thankful for – both of us are equally thankful for our good health and for each of us finding such a great partner in the other. Keith says that I should tell you here that he has more to be thankful for than me. For our family, and for our friends – thankful, thankful, thankful. The little three-legged, dog-earred, parvo dog totally makes it on the list, there is no other love like hers.

Seems like a short list, but it is everything that is important. We have more than enough of anything we “need”. We enjoy each days adventure. Often times we are asked “do you know how lucky you are?” And the answer each time is unequivocally YES – do you?

I am threatening that this is my last American Thanksgiving celebration. I do believe I’ll switch things up and will be celebrating the fall harvest and bounty next year with the Canadians. I fell in love with the holiday all over again when Keith and I lived in B.C. and celebrated Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October – a day we know as Columbus Day. Keith thinks this will hinder my attempt to have any fellow Americans join me in moving our holiday to match the more appropriate day in October, as it would mean one less day off work. But think of it, if we celebrate Thanksgiving on Oct 8th, 2007, we can all be decorated for Christmas by Halloween and not miss our chance to give thanks. Hahahaha, I promised I wasn’t going to bring it up again – I lied. It’s just that we have so much to be thankful for….well, judging by the responses from my previous rant, you agree.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone – enjoy the day and the people you share it with 🙂

  2. I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving. So next year in Canada maybe? Sounds wonderful. I’ve always wanted to visit there. We cooked, ate, and played games with some family. All in all a very nice day indeed! Take care!
