Tomorrow my American friends will celebrate Thanksgiving Day. For me though, each day I try to find something to be thankful about even on those days when nothing seems to go right. That's because at some point I realise there is the hope of a better tomorrow and so I give thanks. Today I am very grateful that all my senses work and most times I am able to make the right decisions.

I am grateful for a job that I truly love and the children who continue to bring out the best in me. I've heard it said that the children I teach are lucky to have me as their teacher but I am the lucky one for having them. They have taught me patience and to look at life with their sense of wonderment and less of my cynicism. And so I give thanks for the joy they bring to my life.

I am thankful for the special people in my life. The ones who offer encouragement when all I want to do is give up, provide a listening ear when it's needed or simply join me in silliness. I am so grateful for the balance you bring to my life. So while turkey and cranberry sauce will not fill our homes tomorrow we can still be thankful for the breadfruit and saltfish.

Happy Thanksgiving to my North American friends who observe the holiday.

yay breadfruit!

yay saltfish! :D
