It was Thanksgiving this weekend for us {in Canada}.

Richard and I went for a walk this afternoon and started down a path at a nearby creek. As I turned the corner and saw this view, the first thing that came to mind is 'the true north strong and free'. For those of you who are not familiar with those words, it is a line in our Canadian national anthem. And that line says so much about what we are thankful for.

True North Strong and Free

We had an OUTSTANDING weekend for our very first Thanksgiving celebration in Cardinal House. My Granddaughter helped me make a cake for dessert and of course it had to sport candles for a Thanksgiving song {to the tune of Happy Birthday to you....}. 
Before the cake and pie was cut and passed, I asked everyone 'what are you thankful for?'  Without a moments hesitation Kya {who is four} said; 'I'm thankful for my wonderful family and our healthiness'. Yup - not a dry eye in the house.

We are blessed. And we are Thankful.
