This weekend it's thanksgiving here in Canada.  As I prepare to take part in Compassion Sunday tomorrow, I wanted to take a small break from the 31 days posts to think about what we have to be thankful for.  I have on my mind tonight the people around the world who have so little.  We have so much yet we complain all the time!

Tonight I am thankful for:

1.  A warm, safe home
2.  3 healthy kids 
3.  A husband who loves me
4.  Whimsical vintage caravans
5.  The crunch of leaves under my feet
6.  Giggles from my baby
7.  My dreadlocks
8.  A church that has welcomed me
9.  So many good friends in my life
10.  God providing me strength every day

I encourage you to write a list of a few things you are thankful for today!  It's easy to dwell on the hard moments, but when we sit down and really think about the blessings we have in our life, it is a great reminder that those hard moments often aren't as hard as we think.

Wishing you a blessed Canadian Thanksgiving!!
