I love this time of year. The skies today are blue, not a cloud to be seen. The air is crisp, but not cold and the colours of the trees magnificent. How lucky we are.
How appropriate that this weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving. I decided to come up with just three things I am grateful for and it was hard, as I have a lot – both big and small – that have blessed my life.
1. Family and friends
I am so fortunate to have wonderful people in my life – my husband, my daughters and their partners… and yes, even the dog, Brodie who I love and curse at the same time. Friendships are important to me and I try to keep connected to people who matter to me – both new and old friends. When the chips are down, these are the folks who rally round to support me.
2. My health
I’ve had my share of health hiccups, so it is good to be feeling well and doing well. Without our health, our quality of life is seriously impacted and often we take it for granted, until something goes wrong.
3. Living in Canada
Had we stayed in England I am not so sure we would have enjoyed the lifestyle we have now. Canada has been good for our entrepreneurial spirit and we are fortunate to live in country that offers freedom. Freedom to choose your own destiny. Freedom to be who we are meant to be.
So what three things are you grateful for? Let me know.
