Being Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. We usually mark the occasion quietly, and this year is no exception. A little feast for our family of three and puttering around the garden and house, preparing for the chilly season.

I thank my lucky stars every day for this enchanted life, but today I will be extra mindful. I will not grumble while doing laundry, I will be thankful we have clothes on our back. Dishes will remind me that food was on those plates. Making beds, a reminder that we have somewhere safe to sleep.

Happy Thanksgiving lovelies!


  1. A lovely sentiment...and a lovely photo! Gratitude is always in style!

  2. Being Canadian born of American parents we always had two Thanksgivings (the second one when my grandparents came up from the states).

  3. A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! A lovely punkin'! :0)

  4. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It would be great if we could remember to be thankful and grateful every day of the year. I'm working on it.
