Up here in the Great White North (and no, I am not happy that I can now say that with accuracy, it's only October for goodness sake) this weekend is Thanksgiving. I am going to go out on a limb and guess that we have ours a month and half sooner than our American friends due to the fact that winter comes ever so much earlier here. It's hard to slaughter a bird when it's Arctic-like out.
Can you guess what I am not thankful for? That's right, we'll take winter for $400, Alex. It's here. It's barely October. Yes, that's me sobbing uncontralably in the corner. Thanks for not kicking me on your way by.
But lest you think I am a complete ingrate (you wouldn't be far off though, just so you know) I am actually very thankful for many things.
I am thankful for my two boys who can go from superheros keeping the world safe from evil
to compasionate, loving young men who find great joy in snuggling up with a stuffy. Their collections are extensive and their love for each of member makes their momma's heart swell.
They have a good role model, you see.
This family of mine is what I am most thankful for and that includes extended family with whom will will have the pleasure of celebrating with this weekend.
To all my Canadian friends, may you share love, laughs and happiness with family and friends this weekend. May each of us find the joy in our lives to cherish. It is what is most important.
Happy weekend everyone!
