This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. Since my mom is on vacation, Gil and I decided not to bother with turkey, pumpkin pie, etc. (Actually, I hate pumpkin pie. Honest. It is one of the few desserts that I cannot stomach.) We "celebrated" non-traditionally by going out for a dim sum lunch, because nothing says Thanksgiving like BBQ pork buns.
There is, however, nothing about turkey and mashed turnips that make one more thankful than on other days, so we are still trying to be extra-cognizant this weekend of the tremendous blessings in our life and to be thankful for them.
Some things I am thankful for:
--God's gift of salvation
--50 amazing weeks of marriage to a fantastic husband
--The last 10 years as a Christian. Some of them were very difficult, and I am still growing, but I can truly say I have a changed and redeemed life
--Wonderful friends all over the planet
--The opportunities I have had to travel and see the world
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What are you thankful for this weekend?
