Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada.

Our family has been through hell and back, and now, as I stand at what I hope is the end of that dark tunnel, I realize that I have so much to be thankful for. Yes, we’ve lost ALOT, but through those losses, we have learned and those of us who are left behind have grown closer. I am finally able to see the silver lining around that cloud. I wanted to list my blessings for this day of giving thanks.

My husband. We have been married for 12 and a half years. I met him when I was only 18 years old and can’t imagine life without him. He is truly my soul mate.

My wonderful 10 year old, Boy Oneder. He is everything I could want in a child and more. Loving, sensitive, smart, handsome, etc. etc. etc. He lights up my life.

My awesome 7 year old, Middleman. He is also all that I could ask for and more. Imaginative, intelligent, loving, sweet, etc. etc. etc. Life would not be the same without him.

My new baby. The breath of fresh air that this child has brought to our family is just what the doctor ordered. All of us, including extended family, are absolutely THRILLED at the prospect of another little bundle of joy.

My health and the health of my family. This should be number one on my list. Health cannot be bought, nor replaced. I am truly grateful for our health.

My extended family…Mom, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and family, brother-in-law and family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.

My friends, Kathy, Bruno, Kate, Giuliana, Jennifer, Joanne, Ben, Julie, Donna, etc.

My home. The place where we all meet at the end of the day to regroup.

My job, my boss and my co-workers. Everyone has been so understanding throughout this rough first trimester. I am learning so much and appreciate everything they do for me.

My neighbours. Wonderful, wonderful friends.

My online friends…too many to list. Thank you for getting me through the hard times.

In general, my life. I am thankful for each day that I open my eyes in the morning. For each hug I get, for each smile I receive, for each breath I take. Thank you God. Pin It
