Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Today is the day that we take stock and count our blessing for all that we have. Later today we will be going to my Mom and Dads for turkey dinner. At this dinner will be my darling sister Jess, my beautiful son Noel and Amanda as well as my husband and I. Allan and I lived without family on the west cost for about 12 years, so one of the things I am most thankful for is having my family here around me. I am blessed.
I am thankful for getting to do what I love and for my store that nourishes my spirit.
I am thankful for the home I have lived in since 1979. I am thankful for the gardens and that my yard is large enough to grow some food.
I am thankful for my good health.
I am thankful...for everything.

Happy Thanksgiving, Erin! Why do you guys celebrate it a month earlier than your colleagues in the USA??? I suppose our UK equivalent is the Harvest Festival.

Happy Thanksgiving to you Erin. Have a great holiday.

Thank you Joan. I really had a lovely day. A bit of gardening and a lot of family.
Thank you Mark.
The reason that we, in Canada, celebrate Thanksgiving a month earlier than the USA, is our colder climate makes the autumn harvest about a month earlier. When is your Harvest Festival?

What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving by being thankful. It sounds like you have a lot to appreciate but also that you are a glass half full type person!
