As stated in an earlier post, Canadian Thanksgiving happened more than a month ago. It seems a bit odd that these two virtually equal events would be celebrated at such different times of the year but looking on the Bright-Side, it gives yet another time to stop and ponder for all that we are grateful.
We all lead busy lives, rushing to do what must get done and adding what didn’t onto the list of yet-to-do’s. Planning for this, accomplishing that, starting the next thing; with head down, nose to the grind-stone, forging ahead.
It is nice to be able to stop and reflect on all the good in our lives, even if we have to be told to do it. And with Thanksgiving as a national holiday, the collective stopping is refreshing and enlivening.
So whether or not you are officially celebrating Thanksgiving today, take at least a moment out of your day and make a mental list of all the blessings in your life. You may be surprised at the length of your list.
Happy November 22nd, Everyone!
I am thankful you stopped by.
What are you thankful for today?
