Here's to you, Mr.Scrooge

q
For all my American readers (I like to dream big, I know there aren't any) this weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. I was reading an article in the paper in my hometown where the writer claimed that we as Canadians don't really have all that much to be grateful for.


Are you NUTS? I could spend all day listing things I have to be thankful for, but a few stand out in my mind due to other blogs I read and people I have met!


1) Universal Healthcare. If any of us get sick, it's taken care of. Period. No co-pay, no maximum limit, no worries. For that, I will happily pay my taxes! I don't have to worry ever, unlike this family whose daughter hit her million dollar limit before her 3rd birthday!


2) Clean water, 3.6 % unemployment and enough to eat every night. My friends Syd and Faith are discovering that this isn't the case all over the world.


3) Both of my boys are here with me and not in heaven. Candace and Colleen are marking their first thanksgiving without all of their sons. Pray for them, as this marks the beginning of a lot of lonely firsts.


4) There is no war, I can go to church when and where I want, the last time I saw a gun was in Texas, and saying what I think is encouraged.


So, Mr. grumpy-pants, Canada isn't a perfect place. Suck it up! Instead of whining about what's wrong, enjoy what is right and work to change what you can!


Now I am off to eat a little more ham!

How can people dare say we have nothing to be thankful for? My pastor closed his sermon last night with this and I thought it was great!

'I'm not Thankful because I am Joyful. I am Joyful because I am Thankful!'

Praise God from whom all blessings flow...and Praise God for our amazing country, CANADA!!!
