Because I’m Thankful – Giveaway

October 13, 2014 is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada.

Although I am Portuguese, since coming to Canada I have adopted this celebration. I really enjoy the feeling of introspection that this holiday brings upon ourselves. Yes, I am thankful for many things everyday, but Thanksgiving really puts into focus the things that I am most thankful for.

So here is a list of what I am so thankful for in my life:

  1. My husband and children. They brought an immense happiness into my life. They are the ones that I love the most and the ones that I know for sure love me back.
  2. My extended family. For the support they give me or try to give me when I most need.
  3. The country I live in. Canada is not a paradise, but is pretty close πŸ˜‰ I am very thankful to live in a country where freedom is extremely valued and my children have a chance at a brighter future.
  4. My career. OK, so I had to put my teaching in stand-by when I moved to Canada, but now that I am slowly getting back into it, I am so grateful for the opportunities that are coming my way.
  5. Finally, I am thankful for being able to become a TpT author and share my ideas with so many teachers around the world. I am also thankful that I have so many faithful followers in both my store and blog πŸ™‚

And because I am thankful, I decided to throw a giveaway to celebrate my thankfulness πŸ™‚ So, scroll down and join this giveaway! And please feel free to share it with your friends and colleagues too πŸ˜‰

    I’d like to write something noble- but at this moment I’m really thankful for allergy meds.
