Thanksgiving, just a little late…:)

So I wanted to write something meaningful and all warm and happy for Thanksgiving, but I wanted to write it in French and English. And since my French grammar skills are a little rusty and I haven’t been in a studying mood lately it took me a few days. I meant to have it ready for this morning. Oh well, it got done at least.:)

Of course I am Canadian, but this is Happy Thanksgiving post to my American friends as well! (Even though its more than a month away!)


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”  «Comme nous l’exprimons notre gratitude, nous devons pas oublier que la plus haute appréciation n’est pas de prononcer des mots, mais à vivre par eux.»-John F. Kennedy

“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.”  «L’action de la grâce est, après tout, une action.»-W.J. Cameron

Remember being thankful is one thing, living thankfully is another. Life is hard, and we like to complain; but when we stop complaining and live thankfully, with love, then we really are living life to the fullest. Even if this seems too simple, it is the greatest way to live. It makes all the difference.

Souviens d’être reconnaissants c’est une chose, pour vivre heureusement c’est  une autre chose. La vie est dure, et on aime à se plaindre; mais quand nous arrêter de se plaindre et nous commençons à vivre heureusement, sans oublier l’amour, alors nous vivons vraiment la vie au maximum. Même si cela semble trop simple, c’est la meilleure façon de vivre. Ça fait toute la différence.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten we belong to each other.” «Si nous n’avons pas la paix, c’est parce que nous avons oublié que nous appartenons les uns aux autres.» -Mother Theresa

Be thankful for the ones you belong too and who belong to you. All the people you treasure in your life. The good relationships we have are what is truly important.

Soyez reconnaissants pour ceux a que vous appartenez a, et a qui vous appartient. Toutes les personnes qui vous sont chères. Les bonnes relations que nous entretenons sont ce qui est le plus important dans la vie.

Bonne Action de Grâce! Happy Thanksgiving!
