I am Thankful to be petting dogs and looking at pics of animals that are alive and celebrating their aliveness this Thanksgiving.
I am Thankful for the awareness that we do not need to eat animals to be healthy.. and the knowledge that it in no way helps the state of the planet or ourselves to kill and eat them.
I want to give thanks for all the animals on the planet.
Last night I watched a cat die.. it was really sad. He ran across the street and under the car ahead of us and I wont give details ..but I want to give thanks for cute kittens and cats to love.. and puppies and dogs, and those big licks I got on my face this afternoon and wagging tails.
I want to thank all the people who take care of pets and animals - they make our planet happy.
I want to thank my Mom for not buying the meat when she was asked, of Fluff and Star, mine & Barbs 2 cow friends who lived next door to our summer house ..we used to visit them often and sit on the fence petting them and feeding them apples and things. ..before they were killed for meat.
Mom's been a vegetarian for about 30 years.. she has always been a great inspiration. Thanks you Mom! (& thank you Barb for being my best lifelong friend)
Thank you Mom for caring so much about family ..and bringing everyone food and pumpkin pies today, even if they weren't raw. ; ) ((I know you would have been happy to make raw ones!!)) ..and taking care of people who couldn't get out.
Thank you Jim for being my loving partner for so long and still taking care of me and bringing me to the big Thanksgiving family dinner at Steve's! & for the lettuce and spinach to get me through tomorrow when the stores are all closed as I haven't had a chance to go shopping. ; )
Oh, last night was the big Raw potluck at Toronto Sprouts, 720 Bathurst.. and I raced home from Rawlicious to make a huge bowl of Olive Coconut Curry Pasta to take last night, & barely made it on time. More thanks to all the people who put so much into all the beautiful love-infused raw gourmet creations - which I don't have pics of cause Kaiya had my camera. But thats ok, I am so thankful for Kaiya, and Nicholas and Dylan and a camera..
and that I didn't drown in Panama.. and still get to experience all of the wonder and beauty and miracles that take place every second of every day. : )
Thank you universe for all of the miracles and wonder and beauty and the hot chocolate chia drink which is starting to get cold and yet still just as delicious and the inspiring book sitting beside me just waiting .. and thank you for all of the love radiating from everything around us always when we are clear enough to feel it.
Thank you for you and for being here on this journey with me! xo, Thank you!
