REASONS TO BE THANKFUL (BESIDES AUTUMN)
It’s our Canadian Thanksgiving and there is so much to be thankful for from health to home to family. My list is too long to put it all here but just a few things to remind me how wonderful life is:
Paints come in all colors.
Grass is green and cool.
Leaves are golden and crunch underfoot.
Christmas comes once a year which is quite enough.
I have internet and email without which my world would seem very small.
Grapes are available year round–trivial yet very important.
A baby’s smiles and hugs.
The smell of sweet clover.
Coffee shops. Again trivial but enjoyable.
Permapress cotton. Not so trivial when I think how many hours my mother spent ironing.
Eyeglasses– without which I would be blind.
Church–a source of weekly encouragment.
Grandchildren. What can I say? If you have them you know what I mean. If you don’t, you can’t understand this special joy. It’s like being able to parent RIGHT this time because it’s all about love and approval.
Paris. Yup. I got to see Paris and I am so thankful.
Books–both to write and to read.
Telephones–my loved ones are truly just a touch away. (touch tone calling).
Fresh vegetables–year round. I remember graving fresh and green every spring as a kid.
There are so many. What would make it to your gratitude list?
