Happy thanksgiving!

Happy thanksgiving to my american friends, especially you J, stuck living in Phoenix. I wish you were in Georgia with your family. I'll be giving you a call again today and tomorrow. Official Thanksgiving day is tomorrow irrc eh?

What are you guys thankful for? Even if it's not Thanksgiving for us, I'll play. ;-)

I'm thankful to be safe now.
I'm thankful to have people in my life who love me and that I love very dearly.
I'm thankful that my health is improving.
I'm thankful for my freedom (this isn't something I'll ever take for granted)
I'm thankful to be receiving Faith's professionnal help.
I'm thankful that people some people believed in me few years back and gave a chance. Their faith in me was a blessing and it helped me tremendously. It got me back "on my feet".
I'm thankful for my faith in God, for my church and for the friends I've met through my journey into catholicism. (even if it wasn't always peachy)
I'm thankful that I'll be working full time as soon as my degree is completed.
I'm thankful that I didn't give up even if I went through hell and back. I'm probably stronger than I think I am ?

Happy thanksgiving and may this day be filled with love and may you always know that you are loved. This sentence from the Gospel of Mark always brings me comfort, my spiritual "director" (I don't know how to call her, she's a lay minister with a Master degree in Theology) is the one who helped me discover how this excerpt of the scripture brought peace into my soul. I hope it does the same to you. Because I'm a girl, instead of reading "son", I read that I'm His daughter. :-) I'll quote both the correct scripture and the way I read it.

And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I dearly love; in you I find happiness.” Mark 1,7-11

“ You are my daughter , whom I dearly love; in you I find happiness.”

Have a great day, love and hugs!
