This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada and I have the ingredients for a mostly traditional turkey dinner with pumpkin cheesecake awaiting me in the kitchen as I enjoy my morning coffee. I’ve done laundry and spent time reading about the state of the world today, and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my life.
I am thankful that kiddo is with me today (she’ll go to her Dad’s for a thanksgiving meal tomorrow) and that aside from seasonal sniffles we are both healthy. I’m thankful for my extended chosen family of friends and that I could spend a little time with some of them last night and will see others tomorrow. Thankful too for those who reached out to me after yesterday’s emotional post.
I’m thankful that I have a home I can afford in this housing and rental market that seems to be strangling many people, and that I have food on my table and in my cupboards enough to last some time. Thankful that I could spend last weekend volunteering to help others in need and that I have enough energy and money to continue to give where I can.
Thanks to you, too, for reading.
