HEEEEAAAAAAAT OOOOOF THE MOOOOMEEEEENT!!!!!
That’s right kiddies, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving. No, it’s not at the same time as American Thanksgiving. We have our own and we don’t go shopping for it.
Sometimes it helps to make a list of stuff to remind oneself of what all there is to be thankful about. Not that I need to be reminded… I like making lists, okay?
This one’s kind of a given, but hey, so far as families go, I got a pretty good one, and dangit, I’m thankful for that.
See description one.
3. My man.
He’s seriously so good to me. We keep each other sane and solid. It’s love. Shut up.
4. Social Media & Cell phones.
Shut up and let me explain this one: I have two best friends, ‘kay? One of them lives about 4300 km away, the other lives around 5800 km away. My man? Five hours, a ferry, and another 40 minutes away. This that I have just explained is a sucky situation, but texting, Skype, Facebook, and sure, even tumblr make things just a little bit easier.
I friggen’ love food, and here in lovely Canada we have not a lot of shortage, and in my household we are very blessed to have a crap ton, and this makes me very happy.
6. A full-time job.
Seriously, the job market here sucks, and no one wants to hire youth, and I was lucky enough to find a company that would take me on full-time, and I actually enjoy going to work. That’s pretty great. And my boss ladies are great.
I just really like October.
It keeps me warm, happy, and personable. For that last reason, everyone else should be thankful for coffee too.
9. Running Water.
Enough said, I think.
10. Being able to openly go to church.
Lots of people don’t have that luxury.
11. My honey pot.
I am mostly a coffee drinker, but I like me some black teas as well, but only with honey, and my Mommy - a person is never to old to call their mother “Mommy” - gave me her honey pot a while ago and it made me really happy. Like, kid with a kite happy.
12. The fact that my sad excuse for a laptop hasn’t died yet.
I really can’t afford a new one… and I like this one’s keyboard.
13. The fact that I graduated from high school.
Yes, I am working full time instead of going to post secondary, but that’s just for now, and I did very well in high school - enough to get me some good money for when I want to start up schooling again - but dangit, I hated school, and I am so glad to be taking a break. I really am happier for it.
I am thankful for other people’s music, my music, and my music teacher, whose name is Fry, but not really, but that’s what we call him and he’s great. Very odd, but very kind.
15. The fact that I love in a country where I can own firearms.
16. Science Fiction.
Much to be learned from it. Also just plain cool and creative.
Books are very important to me, be it textbooks, fiction, literature; it’s all important.
18. A house to call a home.
Some people don’t have houses. Some people have a place to stay, but it isn’t home. I love my home, and someday (hopefully soon-ish) when I move away from this home, I will be able to find a new place to call a home.
If you aren’t thankful for cats you’re doing it wrong.
20. My God.
Because of course, I would have none of the previously mentioned things without Him.
This is no way complete and in no particular order.
It probably would have made better sense not to number them in that case, but whatever, numbers are fun… Not they aren’t, but they’re useful.
