Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends and family!We are over here feeling thankful that we have no agenda today just the kids and I, a ton of left overs from a family filled weekend, a stack of board games and our pajamas on at noon. These days are so good for the heart and not so good for the waste band.
From our Little Estate to yours, may you be filled with so much gratitude on this Thanksgiving Day that every area of your life benefits from your thankfulness.
(Here is an excerpt from Instagram about my feelings for these three during this time of year and always. (Feel free to follow along on our day to day journey there.))
"I will forever be grateful for the kind of love they give me, the kind of love I wished for since the beginning of time, the kind of love that is easy, honest, deep and heart wrenchingly beautiful, the kind of love that stops me in my steps and begs me to stare a second longer, to REALLY see what my blessings are made of. Blessings that are their lives unfolding in front of me --- the greatest kind of blessing around. Feeling grateful for their unconditional love, to see their little lives grow from the slight swelling in my belly and into these sweet souls before me. Today and always I am so thankful that God saw something in my husband and I, maybe something small and maybe something only we could give them, but HE saw IT and He reached down and ever so gently picked us both and pushed us into each others paths and then blessed us three times, and big time. Gratitude fills every part of me each time I step back and count my biggest blessings: one two, three."
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” — William Arthur Ward
