Gratitude Monday - Giving Thanks

Canadian Thanksgiving, outside.
It's Thanksgiving here. It reminds us to look upon our lives and be grateful.
We have a saying up here that if you're born in Canada, then you've already won the lottery.
Yeah, that's about right.
Happy Thanksgiving.

I've never actually heard that saying but it sounds right to me. So very much for which to be grateful. Happy Thanksgiving, Leah. :)

Miz said...

Ive never heard that either.


Must come visit and spend more time there to evaluate its veracity :)

I'm always ready to celebrate thanksgiving, any day of the year. Just looking out the windows at the trees changing is enough.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Hilary. We have take more for granted here than many folks will ever see in their whole lives.

Miz, I'd be happy to show you why we say that.

Mary Anne, that's a great way to see it.

Thanks, Barbara. You, too.

Thanks, Messymimi.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, cousin!
It's been a lovely Thanksgiving around here - two meals on two days, with lots of good company! I'm so grateful to be included in my extended family!

Well, okay, lovely except for the weather, which is very cold and wintery, but ya can't have everything, right?

Leah J. Utas said...

Ooh, two meals. Lucky you!
The cold adds to it, I say. Makes a body able to eat more.

Carla, thank you so much for caring. Yep, actually did a bit of living over the long weekend and am just recovering now.
I'm OK. I'll be back at it as soon as my iffy tummy lets me.

Thank you, Crabby.
