A thankful heart.

In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October, a few weeks earlier than our American friends. It's celebrated on a Monday rather than on a Thursday. Today was that day this year.

I am truly thankful for so many things. Family is a big thing I am thankful for. I am surrounded by people I love and who love me in return. I also have many good friends. I get to do what I love every day and enjoy a wonderful crew to help me with my tasks. I work in my back yard for the most part, and have a great shop full of cool tools to play with. We live in a nice house in a wonderful small town, surrounded by nice neighbors. I'm blessed with good health as well.

All in all it really doesn't get better than that.

I also get to travel a fair amount, mostly connected to my work. I love to travel, and haven't yet been to any place I didn't enjoy. The more I travel however, the more I realise we live in a pretty awesome spot in the world. Travelling to other places makes me realise how good we have it right here.

Life is good and I am truly grateful for every minute.
