I think I’ve mentioned before that my family, though not Canadian or American, observes Thanksgiving with our own Thanksgiving dinner complete with turkey, sweet potato poon, corn bread, pumpkin pie, the works. We go around the table and talk about the things we’re thankful for. It’s a really nice tradition, and has caused many tears of joy and of sadness.
For our little family, we’ve been through a lot with our second daughter, Ava (Talbot). While I haven’t posted all the details, you can read a little bit about her here. One day I will do a post about her, but she has a bowel condition and while doctors said it was a pretty easy fix, there have been times when she has been very sick and we don’t know what’s going to happen to her. We’ve had to place a great deal of trust in our doctors and work with them to try and figure out what’s going on and help her get better.
I’ve recently heard a lot of advertising on the radio for the National Day of Thanks, which is on 28 May 2016. This year’s focus is on thanking the health professionals in our lives. It really struck a chord with me, given what’s happened over the last few years. I decided that I really wanted to let our doctors and nurses know that I’m thankful for them and their care, and I think it’s especially nice to do it in the middle of the year, not just at Christmas with the annual stock standard card.
I’ve made some thank you cards and put it together with a little note and some sweet treats (packaged ones, just because I’ll be posting them and need them to last.) If you want to thank someone – and it doesn’t have to be someone in healthcare – you can print off a note on your home printer, or take it to the shops and get it printed at the photo stations (which is what I did). You could even make your own cards, and bundle them up with some chocolates, cookies or flowers, to let someone know you appreciate them.

Please feel free to share these prints, but I do ask that you link back to this post, and that they are not used for sale purposes. Thanks 🙂
