Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! This year, more than ever before, we have a lot to be thankful for. We feel lucky each day to have our health, to have a warm place to sleep and enough of everything we need, freedom to believe what we want and to choose our own government. We are especially thankful to be surrounded by laughter, love and support from our friends and family.
For me, Thanksgiving warrants a few moments of reflection. Although Corey and I are not religious, gratitude plays an important role in our lives and we often spend time just thinking about how lucky we are to have arrived here, at this moment in our lives. Here's an interesting article on gratitude that I came across this week.
Of course, as new parents, we are most grateful for the little tornado who has brought so much chaos, mess, noise and love into our lives this past year. Sometimes just thinking about her brings tears to my eyes because I love her so much.
What did you do for Thanksgiving? We spent yesterday afternoon at my mother's house for our big Thanksgiving meal. Rudy enjoyed playing hide and seek with the cat.
... She also loved the actual meal! I don't think I've ever seen her eat so much, but who can blame her? The mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie were her favourites but she was also pretty excited about the cheese plate!
