To all my Canadian friends, Happy Thanksgiving.
Sometimes it may not feel like there is a lot to be thankful. All you have to do is read the paper, watch the news and listen to your town gossips. All those images that bombard us with fear and anger. People killing each other over who and they think we can love. Our environment eroding because of our selfishness. Some of our archaic ways being lost from one generation to the next because we simply do not have the time to show and teach appreciation.
We have to work a little harder. There is good out there. There are people that go that extra mile to help and show they care. Holding open the door for the next person. Saying please and thank you. Picking up things someone has dropped. Smiling at children. Sharing meals with friends and family. Just simply listening.
I am thankful. I have a roof over my head. I am surrounded by people that care and love me. I am able to go to work. At the end of the day, I know that I have done the best I can. I can even maintain my sense of humour. I have worked hard and now I can say, that I do have a good life.
