Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving today! And although I had my big family dinner yesterday evening, and I’m on the train back to school right now, I don’t want to forget to give thanks, the way I oughta. What a great holiday, don’t you think? It’s a holiday specifically meant for gratitude and happiness. I love that! Even if you’re not a Canuck, I hope you’re blessed, happy and thankful today.

As for me…

I’m thankful that I was able to spend time with my whole family this weekend: grandparents, parents, sisters, pets.

I’m thankful I got to spend time with my doggie.

I’m thankful that my family is safe and healthy and happy.

I’m thankful that my mommy made me a special vegetarian protein dish for our big dinner, and reserved some stuffing without turkey juice. She loves me very much, and I’m lucky.

I’m thankful that my sisters and I bonded over watching 6+ episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

I’m thankful for long talks with old friends.

I’m thankful for long deep sleeps in my childhood home, the kind that clear up my colds and stress.

I’m thankful for freshly-picked-apple sauce & crisp to take home with me.

I’m thankful for long nature hikes with my family (even if I grumble and complain the whole time!).

I’m thankful for new beginnings and fresh starts to get a hold of my life!

I’m thankful for long talks about everything.

I’m thankful for gaining a little clarity about my potential future career.

I’m thankful for cuddles with kitties.

I’m thankful for jamming out to Lady Gaga with my family on long drives.

I’m thankful for loving people to welcome me back to Montreal.

I’m thankful for a slipped $20 for dinner tonight!

I’m thankful for my packed lunch on the train.

I’m so very thankful for my life.

Aren’t you?

Happy Thanksgiving,

  1. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving. I’m not from Canada, but a lot of my family is (I’m technically French Canadian).

    I also love long, deep, healing sleeps at home. No matter how sick or stressed out I am, going home always makes me feel better.

    1. Thank you! Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. :) Your French Canadian heritage is as good an excuse as any to ingest pumpkin pie, am I right? :)

      And it’s so true – I never feel as rested as I do at home. Having family around makes everything nicer.
