giving thanks in australia.

happy thanksgiving from down under!

a meaningful holiday.  full of firsts.  first time i prepared any type of food for a festive feast.  and a ham of all things.  first holiday dinner away from family.  a meal celebrated with lovely strangers.  one commonality – canadians in search of celebrating a native tradition.  all grateful.  all thankful.  it was delicious meal with warm memories of ‘how mom used to make it’.  new friends becoming old friends. 

and thankful i am.  to have found a home away from home.  to rejoice and become appreciative of the blessings i have in my life.  a significantly special thanksgiving indeed – the essence of the holiday shining through.
