Thanksgiving

Well, it's thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Monday is the holiday, but we had our big turkey dinner today because my brother, his girlfriend/fiance (not sure just what they are) and their son could only do it today. Tomorrow they are going to her grandparents for supper, and my brother has to work on Monday.

It was a nice meal, and mom outdid herself with the pies again. She is an awesome pie maker - me, I've never made one yet. I offered to help make them one holiday, but she said she'd rather me not help just in case they didn't turn out...thanks Mom! LOL! We pretty much only have pie at holiday times, and occassionally throughout the year, but then it is usually something like lemon merengue. Oh well, I'm not fretting.

I'm thankful that my family was able to gather around today, and I'm thankful for our health. I am thankful for my little nephew who now lives in Nova Scotia (with my brother and his girlfriend/fiance) and I won't get to see as often - the next time probably being Christmas. I am thankful for having enough food, a house to live in, and warm clothing. I am just thankful for so much!

So, what are you thankful for?

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I, too, am thankful for too many blessings to name.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for amazing and inspiring blog friends such as yourself. And for the warmth and love of family during times that could be less than wonderful. I'm thankful for my Lord who was sacrificed for me and you. And I'm thankful that there are plenty of snuggley blankets during cold nights.

:-) To name a few...

**hugs**

You really threw me for a loop there. I had no idea that Thanksgiving was in October for you guys! So, Happy Thanksgiving and I hope your holiday was fantastic!

By the way how are the flute lessons going?

Happy Thanksgiving! Sounds so strange to say that at the beginning of October...
