I’ve been blogging now for over a year… am still not as faithful as I would like and I still can’t get the hang of posting on special days… like Thanksgiving for instance. I forget that it would be a nice touch to a Thanksgiving post, or a Father’s Day post and such. Maybe in a few more years I’ll have that resolved.
So we had two wonderful Thanksgiving dinners this year. One with Jason’s family and the other with mine. They both were wonderful, the turkey’s were delicious (thanks moms!) the time spent was fun and we couldn’t have mail-ordered better weather for it – it was perfect. Which makes me think again that I’m so thankful that our Canadian thanksgiving is in October when the fall leaves are turning and the weather is still nice… can you imagine if our Thanksgiving was in November? We’d be shopping too.
And I can honestly say that I’m thankful for family – our own family and extended. Jason and I are both blessed to belong to families that are intact, we can be in the same room as our siblings and enjoy it – and it’s wonderful that we all live close enough to be able to get together regularly. And this year I’m especially thankful for a wonderful husband and these little turkey’s…
Maybe it’s because I don’t have a baby anymore that I have more time for them all as individuals and I’m loving being able to take the time to listen to them and hear their hearts. I read tonight that these are the years to cherish your children – because if you do, later on in life when you want them to cherish you, they will. I liked that. They are gifts in my life, they bring me joy and I want to cherish every moment I have with them. They do drive me crazy at time, but for the most part they pleasant little people to be around and I don’t think that I could be any more thankful that God gave me them – their 4 amazing sweet little selves.
So that’s my late Thanksgiving Post – hopefully next year I’ll get it a little closer to Thanksgiving!
