Happy Thanksgiving Canada :) What are YOU thankful for?
Clinton C. Cox declared this about the deliverance thankfulness can
give us, "John Henry Jowett said, 'Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin,
and an antiseptic.' This is a most searching and true diagnosis.
Gratitude can be a vaccine that can prevent the invasion of a disgruntled
attitude. As antitoxins prevent the disastrous effects of certain poisons
and diseases, thanksgiving destroys the poison of fault-finding and
grumbling. When trouble has smitten us, a spirit of thanksgiving is a
Today I am thankful for:
1) My faith in God
2) My wonderful, loving, supportive family
3) My wonderful, loving, supportive raw foodie friends on this site
3) 2 feet and a heartbeat
4) I am thankful that I am sick right now. I believe that, is it through this illness and me getting better by eating raw and taking better care of myself, that I will someday be able to help others get well.
5) The weeping willows in my backyard. I've wanted one all my life and now I have two. :)
What are YOU thankful for?
I am thankful for God. If it were not for Him and the knowledge I have that I am His and that He loves me, life would be SOOOO much harder.
I am thankful that the weather is finally breaking in Phoenix and that the days are now cooler. Today is the first day the windows have been open since before summer!
I am thankful for the birds in the trees. I love to hear them sing.
I am thankful for a husband who treats me with love and respect and supports me in my desire to get well through raw food and other things.
I am thankful I am alive.
I am sooo thankful for my kitties, Tricuit and Sarah. They have aided in my healing process.
I am thankful for friends both here and elsewhere.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude (and humbled) for those who maybe not-so-willingly, but willingly sacrifice their lives over in the middle east to help promote peace.
I am thankful for a bed to sleep in and food to eat.
As a result, I am trying to eat more consciously, pray with more meaning, and give without thought. May we all do something that will make this world better today.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I am going to miss my "Tofurkey" that I had for Thanksgiving last year
I guess this year, I will be making mock giblet gravy :) and I will have to figure out something else to go with it.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!
May the blessings of love, comfort, health
and gratitude fill your hearts and homes!
Happy Thanksgiving to you!!
(Samuel, Alissa has a mock turkey loaf that is pretty good and there is the noasted turkey...haven't tried that one yet..and either should go well with your mock giblet gravy!)
We still have your geese! Honkers they are... neat flyers. I have a piece about them in my 30 Day Journal : "Lessons from Geese".
How did you celebrate?
Tofurkey? I saw that at the healthfood store and busted out laughing - until I found RAWrkey - and said, "Well, there ya go!" Full-circle.
I'm going to try the rawrkey recipe.
