Today is Thanksgiving for Canadians and, I must say, I am so grateful to be a Canadian who is married to an American. It just makes me extra grateful to have my Canadian Thanksgiving in October, and then a month later, we get another Thanksgiving. Best of both worlds!
So, my turkey is slowly roasting in the oven, the potatoes are about to be peeled, the stuffing and pies are on the counter waiting for me to finish prepping them, the Jello salad is done, and I'm debating whether to try a sweet potato pie this year. We'll see. Out of curiosity, do you have a traditional Thanksgiving dish?
When I think about Thanksgiving and the things I'm grateful for, I first think of my husband and children, my family and my friends. I'm also grateful for the freedoms I enjoy, for the opportunities I have to pursue a career in writing and teaching because those are the things I love to do. I'm grateful for a warm home, food to eat, and for indoor plumbing. I'm grateful for the experiences in my life so far, both good and bad, because they made me the person I am today.
And, of course, I'm grateful for this blog, and the people who read it because I've met so many wonderful friends because of your kind comments to me. Thank you.
