Half A Thanksgiving

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

My Canadian half is feeling thankful today, because it is Canadian Thanksgiving.

So I thought I would give you a list of half the things I'm thankful for today.

(not the same as things I'm only half thankful for)

A half-list of thankfulness:
 1. Cool, night air.
 3. A kid who says persnickety.
 5. Cinnamon rolls.
 7. Books.
     Boxes of books.
 9. Giggly video chats.
11. Love.
13. Leaves that change colors,
     and friends who send them to my inbox when I can't see them in person.
15. Hope.
17. Mexican food.
19. Family.

Canadian or not, what are you thankful for today? 


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Day to you! :)

  2. I heard it was Thanksgiving there in Canada this weekend. I can't begin to tell you how being grateful changed/saved my life! Are you on google friends connect? Would love to add you on my reader.

    1. There is a lot of power in gratefulness, and really focusing on it.

  3. What a fantastic list! I'm thankful for my family and friends and for carrot cake with an inch of cream cheese frosting! LOL

    1. Mmmm. Now I want to visit you, and have some carrot cake. That sounds fabulous (especially the frosting)!

  4. I'm grateful for taking my kids to their first NY Giants home game yesterday. It was the 4th best day of my life after getting married and having my kids. Seriously, the best and something I would've only talk about doing just a year ago.

    1. That is so awesome!! I'm happy y'all had such a fun trip. Definitely something to be thankful for.

  5. I'm thankful for:

    sore muscles after running
    food cooking and friends over
    funny kids and kisses from little ones who put their hands on your cheeks
    my bed and my comforter
    the tree in front of my window
    soft lighting
    that first sip of coffee
    a book you can lose yourself in
    and mercy - God's mercy, people's mercy. Just mercy.

    1. I love this list.

      And Mercy.
      I'm thankful for mercy too. It is a precious blessing.

  6. These are good things. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

  7. I like your list - happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Hope is the best of all.
    Happy Half Thanksgiving.
    It was glorious over here in Canada.
    I'll save the turkey neck for you :)
    I'm a good friend like that.

    1. Yes. It is all about the hope.

      I'm not sure about turkey necks, but I could definitely go for some pie ;-)
