#MicroblogMondays: Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving Day here in Canada -- a day for gratitude.  Here are a few of the things I'm thankful for in my life right now:

*  A wonderful extended family who love and support us (including a great BIL & SIL, who had us over for turkey yesterday :)  ).
*  The safe arrival of a new little Princess to spoil!! (Yes!! The Princess has a new baby sister!!) (Henceforth to be referred to as Princess #1 & Princess #2??).
*  Early retirement in relative comfort (despite the involuntary/earlier than expected way in which it came about). 
*  No work to fret about or stress over (this was our busiest time of year).
* Being able to spend extra time enjoying the beautiful fall colours, just coming into peak season right now.
*  A supportive online community that's helped me through some of the roughest times of my life.
*  The gift of words and being able to write out my thoughts & feelings.
* An abundance of great reading material. :) 

What are you thankful for right now?

  1. I am thankful for having access to information (I love finding things out in the comfort of my home), and this online community that makes me feel less of the ugly duck I almost always feel I am. :-)

    I am thankful that I "met" you here online, and hope to one day meet you in person too.

  4. Welcome to the world Princess #2! I am grateful for my electric throw! I was freezing this weekend!

  5. Congratulations on the new little princess to spoil! Love the whole list. There's no Thanksgiving here in Finland nor in Indonesia, though, but I'll take some time today to think about the things I'm grateful for, so thanks for the reminder. :-)

    Oh, one thing for sure, I'm thankful to have met you online. :-)

  6. Reading through your list instantly lifted my spirits.
