What Are You Thankful For?

My favourite part of Thanksgiving is time spent with my family. It usually involves too much eating and a lot of laughing. However when we all get together and sit down to our turkey dinner, my mom always makes us share at least one thing we are thankful for.

As a child, I used to think this was a silly and unnecessary activity. However, I am grateful that my mom taught me how to reflect on and appreciate so many things in my life, both big and small. Here are just a few things I am thankful for:

  • family and friends
  • a roof over my head
  • clean water to drink
  • the beautiful colours of fall
  • good health
  • my job
  • pets
  • living in Canada
  • long-weekends!

I hope this Thanksgiving weekend is full of things for everyone to be thankful for! Enjoy spending time with family and friends and don’t be afraid to ask them, “What are you thankful for?”
