Happy Thanksgiving Day Canada!!

Today Canadians from all across Canada are ready to roast their turkeys for thanksgiving day. Thanksgiving is a holiday where Canadians traditionally eat oven-roasted turkey that day but, what is even more important than the turkey is the mindset that this holiday it reminds us to have. It reminds us to reflect and be thankful for all things given to us. This helps us not to take things for granted. And to be real with you guys.... shiet. I really feel like I take waaaaay too many things for granted. And come to think of it, I should be thankful for all the good company in my life, all the good times, all the opportunities, and all the valuable life experiences given to me this year!! I should be thankful not only today, but everyday! Anyways to end this little blog, here's a an old Christian hymn that has been running through my head this morning that I like to share with you guys. It is called Count Your Blessings. I don't know if people actually sing this song on thanksgiving day, but it the song teaches that focusing on blessings in your life will help keep you in a happy and joyful mood. How true it is!!

Count Your Blessings:
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.


When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.


So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
