Thanksgiving is originally a day to be thankful for a good harvest and the blessings of the past year.
On January 31, 1957, a proclamation was issued stating Thanksgiving was to be “A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed.”

5 Things I’m Thankful For
Thanksgiving isn’t about football! This is a time to be thankful for the abundance you have been blessed with in this life. As Canadians, it’s easy to take for granted our farmers who feed us and the water this country has been blessed with. So many countries can’t even trust the water from their kitchen taps. Just ask the student who stayed with and was amazed we would even consider drinking tap water. And freedom? Just ask migrants from around the world who come here if they would rather go back to where they came from.

Why say what I’m thankful for?
This is a short blog because I just wanted to say thanks. If you have been reading my blogs for any time you will note that I sign off each one with three things I’m thankful for that day. Some are trivial, some are major. By ending the blog and starting my day that way, I focus on the positive and that “infects” the rest of the day.
Make it a great day!
P.S. What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful for Canadian Tire. I’m thankful for wrenches. I’m thankful it was a beautiful sunny day.
