Happy Thanksgiving!

I know that now that I am in Canada we have already had our Thanksgiving. But being American I still honor Thanksgiving in my heart here in November also. So to all of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving today, have a wonderful holiday! Eat much, stay safe and give out lots of hugs and smiles.

Also Hanukkah is today so to those who are celebrating that, Happy Hanukkah to you! With the same wish, many smiles and hugs given and received.

Many have done posts on what you are thankful for. So I thought I would do one also. I’ll try to keep it short and sweet so you can get back to eating. 🙂

I am grateful for being able to sit here and wish you all a happy giving day.

I am grateful that I finished NaNoWriMo, at least the 50k part.

I am grateful for being alive to sit and type all that I am grateful for.

I am grateful for my dog Sam and his nemesis the (stinkin’ cats) Notwen and Pouncer, for they bring me joy and laughter every day.

I am grateful for finding blogging a year and half ago, as I have met so many wonderful and talented people on here. I also have formed some strong and lasting friendships along the way and for that I cannot help but be grateful.

I am grateful for being able to write, speak and think the words that convey how grateful I am.

I am grateful to the people who made guest posts on my blog so I could indulge myself freely with NaNo. Thank you Liz, Mandy, Martin and of course Tiny. You four are amazing and make blogging fun with your giving hearts and minds.

I’m grateful for coffee, the nectar of the gods, for without my coffee every day I wouldn’t be able to function.

I’m grateful for my husband who went out every morning this month and bought me my Tim Horton coffee so I could get hyped up on their fragrant, steaming brew to write my quota of words for NaNo. He also let me off the hook for cooking a lot of nights. Now I’m ready to cook a good meal instead of soup and sandwich.

I’m grateful for the sunshine pouring through my window as it warms me on this cold frosty morning and makes these old bones ready to tackle another day.

And I’m grateful for all of you who read my attempts at writing and are always ready with a smile and a kind word. YOU are what makes this blogging venture so much fun! Thank you!
