Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and I have plenty to be thankful for!

  1. I’m thankful for the long weekend, which means spending more time with my family, especially my dad, who is in town.
  2. I thank God for my mother, her boundless energy and enthusiasm for life. I also thank God for preserving her health and for allowing that smile to be on her face even after a tiring week. I am blessed that she hugs me and tells me she loves me every time I see her.
  3. I’m thankful for my sister and how loyal she is: she always has my back when it’s me against someone else, no matter what (I can’t say the opposite is true!). I also thank God for her generosity, especially with her time and her willingness to help me when I’m in dire straits.
  4. I thank God for friends who listen to me talk about those things that touch my heart the most. I am constantly blessed by their advice and support.
  5. I’m thankful for healing after I broke a glass that cut deep into my knuckle of my right index finger. The cut was very deep and those first few days made me think I might need stitches but healing has come and I have a scar to remember the incident by.
  6. I’m thankful for my single status because the bible says to give thanks in all things. (It’s not always easy though!)
  7. I’m thankful for all the tangible blessings in my life, especially my car and my house. One person does not need so much so I do appreciate it.
  8. I thank God for health insurance that covers most of the cost of my visits to the dentist so I can go regularly and keep on top of my dental health.
  9. I’m thankful that I found a new doctor, even though I have yet to meet him. He comes highly recommended, so I’m glad he decided to take me on. I can’t wait to be thankful for the work this doctor will do to relieve me of the back pain I’ve been dealing with.
  10. I’m thankful that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! Now I just have to take action, believing that to be true.
  11. I’m thankful for the beauty of autumn/fall here. We have four distinct seasons where I live and fall is by far the prettiest—those colourful leaves on the trees get me every year!
  12. I’m thankful for the lessons that the 2012 Nigerian Blog Awards have taught me so far…lessons like “Ask for help!” and “Schedule 500% more time for things than you think you need!” immediately come to mind. (By the way, won’t you “Like” our Facebook page while you’re reading this?)
  13. I’m thankful for my cousin’s blossoming relationship with a man of God.
  14. I’m thankful for my sister’s special man and how lovely he and his family are. They will make fantastic inlaws!
  15. I’m thankful for my job and salary, which allow me to take care of needs and wants. Speaking of wants, a new phone and an iPad are on the list but I’ve been managing this since April so I think a new phone is almost a need:

  16. I’m thankful for my brothers, especially when we get along with each other. ;)
  17. I’m thankful for the many inspiring online entrepreneurs.
  18. I’m thankful for the delicious turkey dinner we will enjoy later today.

What are you thankful for?
