It's October!

It's October! You know what that means for Canadians? It's Thanksgiving time!

My American friends celebrate in November, but we Canadians celebrate in October. Some say it's because our harvest comes sooner, annnnnnd so does our winter...brrr. The first known Canadian Thanksgiving happened by the explorer Martin Frobisher in 1578 on the island now known as Newfoundland. Thankful for a safe journey across the treacherous Atlantic Ocean..

We celebrate now for many different reason, and we all have them. In our culture which is no longer agrarian for most people, we still take time to give thanks for our year, our health, our personal tidbits and favourites. Some celebrate the season merely because the Pumpkin Spice Latte hits the store, but I think it goes much deeper than that.

Gratitude in every day of our lives is required to live a fruitful life. We must take the time to stop and look around and show gratitude, speak gratitude, and live gratitude. In the world we live in today, it is so important. Waking up safe and warm is something to be thankful for. A hot cup of coffee, breakfast, running water- all worth celebrating and being filled with gratitude over. The simple things we take for granted, others don't have... the world we live in doesn't give those opportunities to all.

So in this month of Thanksgiving, let's give thanks for all of the things we are grateful for, our families, our friends, our experiences, our meals, our coffee, our dogs, our jobs, our lives... in everything give thanks.

Print of these reminders... and in everything... Give Thanks, live gratitude, and...
Share the love,
M.
