With Much Thanksgiving

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (I know, way to early for any Americans, but our growing season is much shorter up here!) Especially around this time of year, I am reminded why I have a ton of reasons to be thankful! The first one I’ll start with has to do with these photos: one day last week, Mr. Bean brought me flowers “just because.” This wasn’t really your average bouquet of flowers as it had two elements that bouquets don’t normally have:

That’s right – Kale and peppers. I bet you’ve never had a bouquet like that before!

Besides that, I know that I am a very blessed person! I am so grateful for all the people in my life – Mr. Bean, my family, friends, people at my bible study and church, kids that I teach Sunday school to and tutor, my counsellor, and so many more! And finally, I am thankful for all of you lovely people who read my blog – for your support, encouragement and being able to visit your blogs and get to know you more!

I’m also so thankful for God’s provision – for the roof over our heads, the abundance of water, food and support we have and that we’re able to live in such a great country as Canada, where we can freely worship God, be able to speak our hearts and minds without fear of disappearing in the night, can be friends with whomever we please and that views every human life as having value.

I’m also grateful that this Thanksgiving Mr. Bean and I are able to spend time with both of our families as well as being able to make and share food and good times which each of them!

I hope that you have a blessed Thanksgiving! (Or at least a blessed Monday if you aren’t celebrating thanksgiving for a while.)

What are you grateful for?

The Straight Out Of the Camera (SOOC) shots are my submission for this week’s Leaves themed “Good to Wow: Shoot and Edit.” Sorry, no fall leaves over here – if you want to see some, please look at the engagement shots I took of my brother and his fiance or of my hike in Buller Pass a few weeks ago. 🙂
