I’m sitting here at my desk feeling very thankful today. Partly because Canadian Thanksgiving is a few days away and that gives me pause to consider all the things I have to be thankful for. In fact, a friend of mine who is struggling to get through chemotherapy told me how thankful she is for all the little things like flowers, the beautiful colours of the trees this time of year, fresh air, and even the gift of waking up every day and having life.
I have friends in Florida who are in the wake of the hurricane about to hit there. They’ve been posting on Facebook that the hotels are all booked and the roads are crowded with cars – everyone trying to leave.
Then I read posts from others offering shelter, for not only the families affected, but their pets and their extended family. That makes me thankful that in spite of so much negative news, there are still so many people in the world who are kind and caring towards their fellow man.
I’m thankful that I have the freedom to sit here at my desk and write to you today. Have a wonderful rest of the day and take the time to look around you at all of the blessings we have been given. I do appreciate you!
All the best,
