Thanksgiving Day Canada 2016

Our small family gathers at the table today to give thanks for each other and for the basics (and more than the basics) of life.
Ten years ago today Thanksgiving Day fell on the 9th and a special gift was delivered to our family in the form of the wee man. Thanksgiving dinner was interrupted by a small, red, squalling slip of humanity demanding our attention and our love.  We spent the best part of the day at the hospital comforting, encouraging, cheering and admiring.
Today I watch our special Thanksgiving gift stuff himself with turkey and the trimmings and I give thanks all over again.
Do you have a special Thanksgiving memory?


  1. What a truly wonderful Thanksgiving you had a decade ago. It would be hard to surpass that.
    A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Delores. I love to hear about the wee man. I can picture the sparkle in your eyes and the smile on your face when you speak of him and his sister.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Delores! I hope you're also enjoying beautiful, autumn weather today. Over the past few years, Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday...topping Christmas, because it's not about commercialism, it's about people getting together to share a meal. I love all of the aromas: turkey roasting in the oven, pumpkin pies and rolls baking, Mmmm! Have a beautiful day!

  4. Ten years old already! Time flies.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving. A Thanksgiving baby is definitely worth giving thanks for. Happy Birthday to him.


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
