Happy Thanksgiving Winnipeg

WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR IN 2011?

I know what I’m thankful for…
The child who is not cleaning his room but is busy playing or practicing hockey, football, golf or baseball and therefore off the streeets.
For the taxes that I pay because it means I’m working.
For the mess to clean up after my party because it means I’m surrounded by loved ones.
For the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means that I have enough to eat.
For the lawn that needs to be mowed, the windows that need to be repaired and the gutters that need to be cleaned because it means that I have a home.
For all the complaints that I hear about the government because it means that I have freedom of speech.
For the parking spot that I find at the far end of the lot because it means that I’m capable of walking and I have transportation.
For the steady economy we enjoy in Manitoba and jobs which help us provide for our families.
For the return of the Winnipeg Jets because we all live with passion for hockey and community.
For my Manitoba Hydro gas bill because it means that I’m warm.
For the huge pile of laundry because it means that I have clothes to wear.
For the weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I’m capable of working hard.
For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I’m alive.
And finally, for a profession that allows me to make a difference in people’s lives.
Happy Thanksgiving Winnipeger’s, it will be a Thanksgiving to remember!
