Thankful Days


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” — Melody Beattie

I like to think I am thankful and grateful for all that I have most days. Sure there are days – or in the case of November this year – an entire month where someone or multiple members of my household have fallen to the latest plague going around the playground, but even during those times I try to remember to be grateful. I’m grateful because our runny noses will pass and we will all be healthy again soon (we hope). I’m grateful because even during the worst of his cold, my son was full of cheer and smiles that managed to penetrate my mucus-filled chest and make my heart swell. I love that even in the height of his “mine” stage where everything from the vacuum cleaner to every cup in our house is “his” to him, that my son’s favourite thing to claim as his is still “my mommy” and “my daddy”. We have each other, a comfortable home, and wonderful friends and family… We are so lucky, and we know it every day of the year.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
