What are you Thankful for?


It is easy to look for the things we don’t have. That white Coach satchel that screams “buy me” whenever you walk across their store; that lucrative government job at City of Vancouver with pension, health benefits and 2 months of vacation or that limited edition green leather couch for your plain living room. The list goes on.

"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks."  -William Shakespeare

“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.”
-William Shakespeare

We want to have answers. We want to feel accomplished. We want to have more.

While we  have unfulfilled desires, unexpected problems,unfinished business and seemingly unanswered prayers…

The questions we need to ask ourselves are…

1. Have I taken the time to be “thankful”?

2. Have I really looked into what I “already” have?

3. Have I ever been content?

Perhaps we have been taking for granted the things that have always been there. The bright early morning sunshine; the clean fresh water we drink; the bus driver who arrives at your stop on time; the newly washed clothes ready to be worn and that warm oatmeal you had for breakfast.

It’s about a paradigm shift.

From being so negative and always lacking… to that of living in a perpetual state of grace.

It is not easy. But it is also not impossible.

And so…the next time you have that tendency to be in a grumpy, whiny and  complaining mode,

think of all the things you are thankful for.

It works every single time (=

Have you ever felt like… Oh no! It’s so and so’s Birthday next week and I still don’t know what to give him/her! The next thing you think is…well…I don’t want to be a “typical” gift giver who just buys things and call it good! For me, a gift is something that comes from the heart, and should be given enough time and effort to make….So, I wanted to surprise the husband with a fun, hand-made and exciting gift for his “nth” birthday…
