Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to celebrate the many wonderful things in our lives. As people in Canada travel long distances to share in the festivities with family and friends, it is time to reflect and give thanks. Personally, I like Thanksgiving because of the friendships, joy and love expressed among best of friends, family, old acquaintances and people we are meeting for the first time.
By reflecting quietly, I realize how grateful I am for all those who have touched my life. Sometimes it is an encouraging word from a stranger, that unexpected phone call, or a random text from someone you are missing that reminds me of how truly blessed I am. Reaching out to those special people in our lives is a fantastic byproduct of Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is a special day. I wish you and your family all the best on this day of thanks! And if all else fails, remember:

Happy Canada Day!
The first of July is special to all Canadians.
Its Canada’s birthday.
This year Canada is 149 years old! Still young as a country, but deep in history.

I am a grateful Canadian!
Not much going on today. I just wanted to wish you a fantastic May 24 weekend. Monday is a holiday in Canada, so Canadians are opening up their cottages after a long winters nap, starting their gardens, taking a little trip and of course golfing!
I hope you have an awesome weekend and enjoy the wonderful weather with your friends and family.
