Giving Thanks

With Thanksgiving nearly here and it being the long weekend (well, almost!) I thought it appropriate to share the things I've been thankful for this past year. As we all know, even when life gets extremely difficult, there are always reasons to be thankful for what you have.

1. I am thankful for my daughter who lights up my life, every single day and unknowingly gives me a reason to stay strong and remain a positive person.
2. I'm thankful to have a husband who supports me in my endeavors, loves unconditionally and works hard to keep our family afloat.
3. I am thankful to have an opportunity to live in the neighborhood where I grew up, close to family and so many wonderful friends.
4. I'm thankful that I've come to understand who my true friends are over the years, and for their ongoing love and kindness and for the joy they bring into my life.
5. I'm thankful for the opportunity to do what I love - to have a job that, a lot of the time, doesn't feel like one.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to those of you in Canada! Tell me.... What are you thankful for?
