At Thanksgiving there are three things that come to my mind for which I am so very thankful. The first is my faith. As I survey all that God has given us in this great country my heart overflows with thanksgiving. We have unparalleled freedoms and wealth that most of the rest of the world will never experience. I recently read that the average Canadian is in the top 2% of the world in terms of personal wealth. I am so thankful that God has placed me here in Canada.
Second I am so very thankful for my family. My husband and I are blessed to have five wonderful children and ten amazing grandchildren. When we started our family over 45 years ago we had no idea what a blessing our family would be in the coming years. Thanksgiving has always been a time for us to gather as a family and share our love for one another.
Thirdly I am truly thankful for the food with which our family will celebrate our faith and our family this thanksgiving. I am thankful for the turkey and all the trimmings, and the wonderful desserts that will adorn this year’s Thanksgiving table.
