What Are You Thankful For?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

This year Thanksgiving is an extra special event for my family. My Grandma turns 75 this weekend and so on top of our regular 20+ Thanksgiving guests, we will be lucky enough to also have several family members from the States, as well as from Vancouver. The festivities are spread all weekend long. Tonight I’m going for dinner downtown with the out-of-towners. Tomorrow we are throwing a huge open house birthday bash for my Grandma, and on Sunday we are having our Thanksgiving dinner. Mmmmm turkey!!

A lot of families have special Thanksgiving traditions, mine just has one. Every year before we eat, we go around the table and say what we’ve been thankful for that year. This year,  I’m thankful for my youth, my job, and my family. In the last year, I’ve finally slowed down enough to enjoy my 20′s, I’ve been lucky enough to have kept my job, and I have realized that whilst I don’t always like them- my family are the constants in my life- and I love them.

What have you been thankful for this year?

Happy Thanksgiving!
