I think a lot about giving thanks during the season of Thanksgiving. I do it again when my friends in the US have their Thanksgiving next month.
I am thankful I live where I do (although I wouldn't complain if I 'had' to move back to Nova Scotia.
). I am thankful for my husband (most of the time). This past month has been trying but overall, even then, we are mostly still compatible. (private joke) I am thankful we enjoy good health. (He is improving every day.)
I am thankful I found Spark People all those years ago. I am thankful for the lessons I continue to learn about how to make better choices in what I eat and how I move. I am thankful that someday I will reach my goal. I am especially thankful for the people I have met here and those I consider friends. I am thankful to have met some of those friends in person and have hope to meet others someday.
I believe we can and should give thanks daily. Many days I write in my journal about things I am thankful for that day. Thanksgiving is just a special time for remembering how blessed I am.
" Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name." - Psalm 100:4
