Hello everyone. Happy Monday. Today is a special Monday for my fellow Canadians and me. It’s Thanksgiving, so I’m taking a moment to reflect on all of the things I am grateful for. Thank you all for reading and following along with our lives.

Today, I am especially thankful for…

My husband, my daughter, my dog and my cat. You are all the best, and I’m amazed that I’m so lucky to have all of you in my life.

My Mom, my sisters and brothers. Tough times bring us closer together.

My Dad. Herons and monarchs and other signs that tell us he’s still with us.

Matt’s family, our extended families, my friends. To feel so loved and supported is amazing.

This special farm that we get to call home.

Skilled and caring doctors, nurses and midwives. Modern medical science.

Mexican food. Italian food. Seafood. Dark chocolate. Dill pickle chips. Really, all food.

A hot shower, a good night’s sleep (never take that for granted) and lazy mornings.

Writing and how it helps me to process my thoughts, make a living and document our lives.

Whatever you are doing today I hope that you have a wonderful day.

  1. Happy belated Thanksgiving! And to you too, Sarah!

    I haven’t asked about Matt’s eyes lately, are his tests showing he’s cancer-free?

    I love your Thanksgiving picture. Totally adorable! You always come up with fresh ways to show annual events.

    This year I’m thankful for insight into my state of being, which is depressed. Finally realizing this gives me bits of ideas on how to get unstuck and move forward, as I have been here before. I’m also thankful for family, and especially my grandchildren who bring me so much joy. They are the brightest spots in my life!

    • I’m glad to hear that you’re attentive to your mental health and working to move forward. That is such an important part of overall wellness–one of the things we’ve learned going through what Matt’s dealing with. Thank you for asking about him. We too move forward every day. You’re right about children bringing joy and being the brightest spots. We’ve learned that lesson very well with Ellie. No matter how hard things are, she is pure joy.
