It’s week 22 of a year that I am participating with Bernadette of Haddon Musings, with a goal of realizing how many things we have to be thankful for in this somewhat chaotic world we all live in.
Today, I want to express how thankful I am for our neightbours to the south in USA, who are celebrating Thanksgiving this week on November 24th.
They have had quite an upheaval this past month. It follows almost two years of campaigning, with many debates that were filled with much rhetoric that created a lot of dissension and uncertainty for many people. Canada and the U.S.A have a strong connection and friendship in so many areas; economic, travel, trade, and so on.
My hope and prayer is, that through all the controversy, and sometimes unnerving things spoken during their election, that the people will learn to trust and support each other, for all that makes their country what it has been and is today.
For to allow fear and injustice to pervade in the atmosphere, will deny the very freedoms that has always been celebrated.
May this Thanksgiving give pause for all Americans, to give thanks for what they have, and to seek peace and justice for all.
Happy Thanksgiving from a Canadian who appreciates very much the friendship that our countries have with each other. May God continue to Bless America.
