In honour of Thanksgiving for my American Friends, I thought that I might put together a Thankfulness post.  There are many things that I am thankful for.  On a daily basis.  Like cream for my coffee.  Or sleeping past 6:30 a.m.  or a good night’s sleep.  Small things.  Sure.  Significant just the same.

This past weekend, we hosted a small holiday gathering and it reminded me that I am thankful for laughs.  My day is so much nicer when I have had the chance to laugh, so I make a point of doing just that.  Trying to find the humour in our daily rituals. 

I am thankful for the abundance of food and drink that fills my pantry and nourishes my family and friends.  We had so much good food to eat yesterday!  That’s what potlucks and gathering are really about, aren’t they.

I’m thankful for snow.  I often joke that I would love to live in a warmer climate but I would desperately miss the snow at Christmas time.  I remember my first Christmas in Nova Scotia with Craig’s family and the lack of snow.  I found it hard to imagine the holidays without it.  Now, I know that Nova Scotia gets snow, but they didn’t have much that year.  They don’t get the amount of snow that is common around here and being that it was my first Christmas without my parents… it made me miss the snow even more.

I am thankful for my family and the way they care for us and our children.  I love that my kids are *spoiled with love, company, kisses and giggles.

I am thankful for a workplace that allows me so much control over my hours so that I can create a balance between work and home.  It’s not always easy but I get the best of worlds even if it means days at the office are hectic.

I am thankful for a daycare provider that welcomes my children into her home and makes them feel loved, warm and secure.  It makes my decision to return to work just a little easier.

I have so much to be thankful for.  I hope that you do too.  I hope that if you are finding yourself struggling right now, those struggles are not in vain and that there is a light shining at the end of the tunnel.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American Friends.

*I don’t believe that children can spoiled with love… it’s just a figure of speech for me.
