Today is our Thanksgiving here in Canada. There are many reasons to be thankful today. Here are my top reasons to be thankful. I am thankful for.....

1. Cochlear Implants - which allow my deaf child to hear and speak.

2. Hearing aids - which allow myself and my hard of hearing child to hear.

3. My husband, who is my best friend.

4. A roof over my head.

5. Food on the table.

6. Always having a job available should I need to go back to work. In fact I am working temporarily this month at my old job, which I love.

7. My children. They are my purpose.

8. Bonus time with my mother-in-law. She is 90 and survived a stroke. She is back in her own home and nearly fully recovered.

9. the friendships that my high functioning autistic son has made in highschool. It is my wish come true.

10. My CI and HA blog friends that I hope to someday meet in person (you know who you all are - I don't want to leave anyone out). We give each other such hope, inspiration and encouragement when we need it most.
