Thanksgiving (- Eh?)

HaPpY Thanksgiving to Canadian friends Up North (and wherever you may be around the globe today.) This magnet on our frig is a memento of several grand visits to Canada.

A little Canadian Take-Out humor…

Whether we’re celebrating Thanksgiving in October (or in November as we do here) with turkey and all the trimmings (or take-out) πŸ™‚ every day is a good time to be grateful.

Yesterday our priest challenged us with this quote:

β€œWhen it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.” G. K. Chesterton

A blessed Canadian Thanksgiving to friends Up North, and a challenge for the rest of us to carve a little thankful time in our daily routines.

“It is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy.” Anonymous

grace, peace & thankfulness

    Life is so much easier to live with gratitude. When I wake up each morning, the first thing I say is, “Thank You for a new day ;).” Happy Monday !! Love the picture, let’s have a great week ❀

      Scarlett, an attitude of gratitude is a great way to start each day (even if we have to think a tick or two.) You are in good company – my bedfast quadriplegic papa started each day that way. He always said his blessings outweighed his challenges… Hugs! πŸ‚πŸ’œπŸ‚πŸ€—πŸ‚

        It’s good that I woke up to this in my feed…Monday Madness was setting in but I read this and remembered to say, “Thank You !!” My husband is an artist and he painted a picture almost exactly like the one on your post. Only difference was it was at night with the moon shining throught the trees ❀ Blessings Mz. Virginia ❀

    Wonderful memories of a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner prepared by Chef Virginia at Fellowship House in Washington. I think the year was 1988. What fun it was !

    • Virginia says:

      Edie, I’ll never forget that dinner – the first time I baked a huge turkey on my own! (Called my mama with frantic β€˜how to’ request so as not to botch it!) What lovely memories, Edie – miss you & love you (lots!) πŸ’œπŸ‚πŸ€—πŸ’œπŸ‚
