Happy Thanksgiving!

I would like to start out by wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.

In today's fast-paced, high-stress world, I think it is important to stop and give some thought as to what we are thankful for this year.

I will go first:

I would like to pause from my busy schedule to give thanks for the love and support of my family. It has been a good year as we are all healthy and happy, and we are celebrating this day together.

I am thankful for my dayjob which allows me to have financial security when so many do not.

I am thankful for each and every day I wake up and greet the day, whatever, it holds for me. Sometimes the pigeon, sometimes the statue!

I am thankful for my interests in rug hooking and all the wonderful people I have met through this interest.

I am thankful for choosing to live in the most beautiful place in the world and making living more important than sitting in traffic for hours.

Now it's your turn. Let's hear what you are thankful for this year. Leave your comments and lets all take some time out to give some thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.


  1. Hi Julie,
    Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I think your list of thanks is perfect. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Julie.

    I am indeed thankful that I and my family, my siblings and friends are healthy. I am happy for an abundance of food.... For the comforts of home without disturbances such as flooding, tornadoes, war,etc. I am thankful that I have kind and considerate friends like YOU....

    Have a Great Weekend.....

  3. I too am thankful for my frienamily (my friends are more family than just friends)

    I am thankful for my many creative talents and my passion for cooking and my willingness to share my gifts.

    I am thankful for my job, it has provided me with a great outlet to express my passions and meet a lot of great passionate people.

    I am thankful for my dogs/babies. They help me live in the moment and realize that with a small kiss and a good cuddle worries aren't that big.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
