This weekend we celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada. It seems to me that each year the idea of giving thanks becomes more and more important to me. I give thanks for all the blessings in my life on a daily basis, but somehow that doesn't seem like quite enough. It always seems to fall far short of what I need to give thanks for. I am incredibly blessed, incredibly fortunate, and I don't know how to put into words how grateful I am for everything that life keeps sending my way.
Do I always feel this way? No, some days I can't find anything to be thankful for; but that doesn't mean that I don't have a ton of things to be grateful for, even on my worst days. On good days, however, I am astounded by just how much I have to be grateful for.
So this weekend will be about holding close all my blessings and trying to find a way to give thanks, a way that will live up to all the wonderful people, situations, and experiences life has put in my path.
