I’m Canadian! My thanksgiving is now. In November when my American friends will celebrate thanksgiving, I will celebrate it again!
Quite frankly, every day should have a moment where one should feel thankful.
Yes, every single day, I have something to be thankful for.
This last week, as Emily wasn’t feeling well… I’ve done a lot of laundry!
It reminded me of the first couple of years of Emily’s life when she was vomiting multiple times a day.
We were young living in our first house which was on a lake (beautiful spot). The house was a cottage which had been turned into a house. Nothing was leveled but the windows and French door were amazing. I have never had windows like that again!
Our small house had a stackable washer-dryer unit…
Every other weekend, we had to take our surplus of laundry to the laundromat with our vomiting baby in her stroller because those tiny washer-dryer units… They were no match to my girl’s ability to dirty clothes.
So on Friday as I’m starting, yet, another load of laundry. I had a moment when I thought about complaining out loud about non-stop laundry…
Than I remembered the stackable…
And it hit me!
I was so thankful for growing up, full-time employment, moving a couple of times, actually having the opportunity to move for employment, having a kitchen without a stackable unit in it.
As I filled my washing machine for the 5th time that week. I took a second to smile as I put in two sets of bedding, many towels, lots of pajamas and many other things.
I smiled because I won’t have to make a trip to the laundromat.
I smiled because I knew we would figure out what was going on with Emily.
I smiled because I could afford to take a couple of days off to take care of my girl.
I smiled because although I didn’t want to do laundry. I can do laundry!
For that, I’m thankful!
Can you find a daily reason to be thankful?
