Yesterday we celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving with my side of the family. I am grateful for so many things in life but one that comes to mind as we celebrate Thanksgiving, is that although our parents are no longer with us, all of my siblings are. Sister Stephanie and Brother Wally did not make it yesterday but brother John surprised us with his presence as well as nephew Colton and wife Nicole here from the Vancouver area. It was really nice to have them come and made this Thanksgiving extra special.
Every holiday I sprinkle into my stuffing some of this poultry seasoning that I still have from my mother who passed in 1993!! I know you are probably thinking it’s no good anymore or it has lost its flavor but that is not the point. A little sprinkle of that stuff is like a big sprinkle of Love from our mother blessing our dinner. 🙂 I have been doing it for years but only made the big reveal to the fam yesterday lol
Speaking of blessings, I am so blessed to be partnered with the most amazing human being, Don, who wrote this beautiful Thanksgiving prayer that I had the pleasure of reading just before our feast.
Here is his prayer that we shared:
We give thanks to the Universe for the abundances of riches that the
earth has bestowed upon us. May we be forever grateful for the Love of family and the fellowship that we enjoy as we partake of this feast that was prepared with Love and Laughter.
May this food nourish our bodies and our fellowship together, bless our souls.

Our meal was amazing and being with everyone even more amazing. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian family and friends.
