Here in Canada today is Thanksgiving. Most people equate it with turkey, ham and all of the fixings.
And while Thanksgiving it is about celebrating the bounty of the harvest and having a full larder it is also about giving thanks for all of the good things and most importantly the good people in your life...

I am thankful for so many things...
The challenges I have been facing of late - they make me stronger, better at what I do.

I am grateful for those who do not like me -  they teach me different perspectives.
I am grateful for the friends that help me to stay grounded and stay the course.
I am grateful for the strength of the dream and vision I have as it too helps me to stand tall for what I believe in.

I am grateful for my incredible husband and his love - he amazes me daily.
I am grateful for my daughter - she makes me cry, make me proud and fills my heart with love and joy.

I am grateful for a kitten named "Lost" who found his way into my heart - he makes me laugh and giggle, his love is so pure and nonjudgmental - he is a fabulous stress reliever as his antics are zany!

I am thankful for the people I work with and who have stood beside me no matter how many mistakes I make along this path I am learning to walk.

I am grateful for the mistakes I make for without them I would never know I was on the right path.

I am thankful for having a sweet little house and a decent car to drive. I am grateful for my motorcycle - it keeps me out of the psychiatrists office....

I am grateful for this life I have been given, one that allows me to grow and reach.

I love my life and the people and creatures who make up my life...
I thank the Lord my God for all of the treasures in my life...

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

So what are you grateful for?

I would love to know...

    You have said it all and said it well. I, too, have kids I am so proud of, a wife whose love I never doubt and that I feel and appreciate every day, no pets but so very much more in my life that I thank God for each and every day. We appreciate you and all you do for the riding community. Never give up, be bold, be strong.
