A special day for me too...
Thursday, November 26, 2009
For most of you today is a special holiday. A day you celebrate over a huge dinner with family and friends, counting your blessings and giving thanks for all the good things in your lives.
It's a special day for me too, even though (as most of you know) I'm a proud Canadian. Ten years ago on your Thanksgiving day I was presented with my engagement ring.
DH and I had been engaged for more than a year, but I didn't have a ring yet. At the time DH was working for a telemarketing company that had a lot of American contracts; therefore, they followed the American holidays, and he was off that day. When I got home from work, I knew something was going on, because the blinds were closed and I could see candle flames through the space under the blind.
When I walked in, there was DH on one knee, with all the candles we had lit up around the room, and my engagement ring in his hand!
So, your Thanksgiving is a special day for me too, and I am always especially thankful on that day for my wonderful husband.
