It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.---the Macy's day Parade will be on, I think.
Hopefully there will be family type movies, to watch all weekend--- my all time favourite-"Trains, Planes and Automobiles" just might be on--
Here in Canada, we are right into Christmas----
In my heart, my very most favourite time of year, is still Thanksgiving--
This morning , I began to think of what I am thankful for--
Well, here is a liust, made by a Canadian, living in the North-I am ever so thankful for:--
#1.---that I live where I do--no traffic--- only animals! -and in a relatively safe country--
#2--that I am alive and not any aches and pains (well, there are some!)-
#3.-that Himself didn't break any bones when he fell-- only his head had to be sewn up (sounds awful doesn't it?
#4--As of now, both Germans (as in dogs)-seem to be OK-no major Vet bills on the Horizon
--#5--I can pay our household bills-- so far! ---
#6---that I can put my feet on the floor at 5am, so I have time to exercise-and the early mornings don't affect me till 5pm, when I become sorta grouchy-
#7--that I make time almost each day for a wee nap-in spite of our grown children continually dropping in, as they don't understand that old-er people nap-
#8--that I am able to cope with my Thyroid disease well!
#9--that I have a piano and that I can play for the Germans--(as in dogs)
#10--that we have a small wee kitten who moved into our life and she never vomits, as most of our other cats did, and himself always stepped in it, in the night-
#11-that our grown children are all working- and not dependant on Himself and I!
#12 -that my winter boots have special grips so I can't slide on the ice , outside-
Making that list is difficult--There must be so many more reasons that I am grateful for---
but---- (that big "butt")---
THERE IS NO FOOD MENTIONED!
Lord love a Duck! How my life has changed--from -ice cream-diet coke-white bread--cakes--to the above!
-I am grateful for Spark--for Spark friends, who are a positive force in my life--who really helped to turn me into a healthy person, even tho it's a very slow change!
I'm learning to face --the fat!---
