Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

Mines do!

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!
