Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. Actually, Monday is officially Thanksgiving, but I'm writing this post a little early because I know I'll be too busy to write anything this weekend!

I hope you all take the time to look around and say thanks for all the small things, for all the blessings, for all you have!

I'm thankful for:

A wonderful, loving, caring, and giving family who is always there for me. The bond my family has is so strong and I'm thankful for every single family member! I'm truly blessed.

My husband, who puts up with me every day and cooks for our family.

My children... I'm most thankful for my children, my darling boys. The love I have for them can not be described in words and the love I feel as a mother is so strong my heart feels like it's going to explode a million times a day!

I'm also thankful to live in this great country. We are blessed to live here. The quality of life we have, the health care, although not perfect, our education system, our parks, our museums, our trees - O Canada, indeed!

And I'm thankful for other things, too...

I'm thankful for some great fall tv shows, like Glee! And the fact that we are getting a Bath and Body Works, and that my favourite mall keeps opening up more great stores so I can blow my money on, and I'm thankful for Starbucks caramel macchiato. I'm thankful for great friends, and wonderful bloggers, and comments and my iphone and the fact that Christmas is around the corner. I'm thankful for good home cooked meals and chocolate and I'm thankful for songs that make me smile.

I'm thankful for everything, big and small. This weekend, I will not complain at all, about anything. That is my Thanksgiving challenge! And as for dieting... well, that can be put on the shelf right next to 'do not complain'!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Have a wonderful weekend and Thanksgiving! Enjoy the special time with family and don't think about the diet. Calories don't count on holidays or vacation, so sayeth me.

-->We celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving every year as well as American Thanksgiving. My Mom is from Ottawa but has lived in DC/MD/Va. for the last 45 years.

You have many great things to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing.

Haha!! I wish I could be thankful for a hubs who cooks...but then we'd all starve! So lucky! Does he clean too? What a great list! And the fun ones are great too...they are what keeps us "somewhat" sane!
Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving! It's great to step back and take inventory of the greatness in our lives. I like your idea about not complaining for at least one day, and no dieting. :)

I'm loving Glee too, I can't stop watching the videos on youtube too. There's actually a lot of great TV on now and it makes it hard to get any work done. Happy Thanksgiving
