As I was walking back to my car clutching my brand-spanking-new digital meat thermometer and enjoying the crisp fall weather, I realized that I had much to be thankful for.
I am thankful to have found a wonderful husband. We'll be celebrating 21 years together this January (17 1/2 years married).
I am thankful to have two wonderful children who give me huge amounts of joy.
I am thankful to have relatively good health and a health care system that is always there to take care of me and my family.
I am thankful that my husband and I both have interesting careers and that we don't have to count our pennies to afford a digital meat thermometer. I'm not being facetious. We don't do expensive vacations or have a big, fancy house, but we have a lovely life and want for nothing. There are so many people who are suffering financially or emotionally. I am thankful for what I have.
I am thankful that I live in Canada.
