His First, My Best – [Canadian] Thanksgiving 2016

my-first-thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time when people stop for a moment, consider all the good in their lives, reflect on their many fortunes, and honor everything valuable that they have.

It is a time when the entire family come together to share a meal and publicly acknowledge their many blessings in life.

For me, Thanksgiving has always been a celebration where I am grateful for everything that is near and dear to me.

Over the years I have been graced with so many blessings in my life, but the number one thing I am most thankful for this year is my son. He is the result of the true love my husband and I have for each other, and the epiphany of true joy and ultimate happiness.

His arrival into the world didn’t go as smoothly as expected and he proved to us from his first moments of life that heΒ is a true fighter, and because of this, I love him all the more.

I am also thankful for all the hugs and cuddles and smiles and kisses he gives me every day. He gives my life a special purpose. I feel an unconditional love for my baby boy that I have never felt before in my life.

He is the cutest and most adorable baby.Β Β  To me, my baby boy is perfect!

And as I celebrate another Canadian Thanksgiving in Taiwan, I appreciate all the opportunities I have had thus far in life and all the little things that make my life all the more amazing. I am thankful for the people who have made my life so beautiful and for the wonderful things (like good health and happiness) that make my life all the more complete.

And as I enjoy good wine and a good meal on this Thanksgiving day, my son’s first ever, I contemplate the fact I am thankful for all the good in my life not only on Thanksgiving, but each and every day!!

As every day is a blessing!! A gift!! A present!!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!
