It's Thanksgiving up here in the great white north. A time for celebration that has beginnings that are tied to historical exploration and harvest. Today - it's more about family, friends, and of course, giving thanks.
So today as I consider how the year has gone, I realized that in the scope of life nothing ever runs completely smooth. But right now the house is warm, the power is back on after the other day's repeated outage and I've got a cup of coffee beside me and the dog snoring at my feet. The day is slowly beginning and soon the rest of the house will awake. This is my writing time. The quiet time every day that is all mine. I love it and as I consider I realize there's a lot of things in my life that I love. I've been lucky so far.
Every once in a while you just have to give thanks. And today is it - please pass the turkey!
BTW - I think in the scope of things it might just be the turkey who has no thanks to give.
