Thanksgiving has come and gone,
the turkey is nothing but
a bag of carefully kept scraps now.
With all the festivities over
I've had more time to reflect over this past year
and what I have to be thankful for.
Last year at this time,
I was stuck in Canada nervously waiting for
the paperwork I needed to get approval for a work visa.
My husband was still in the USA
finishing up his Bachelors degree.
We barely had $50 in the bank account
I was afraid that another delay in my start date
would result in my employer letting me know
that I wasn't really worth the trouble.
I am thankful for:
An employer who thought enough of me
to push my start date back three times.
A team of co-workers that have done nothing
but make me feel welcome and supported
since I have started
A career that I am passionate about
and wouldn't trade for another in a million years
A husband who has been my rock for 13 years
The food on my plate, the roof over my head,
the bed I sleep on.
what am I thankful for this year?
Everything I have.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
thank you for reading....
I am thankful
each and everyone of you!
