Thanks and Giving

It's Thanksgiving Day here in Canada.  I'd like to say that every day is about thanks and giving in Canada. I wish it were so. In many ways, Thanksgiving has become my day of reflection and reminding. I have, over the past few years, used Thanksgiving Day as my day for resolutions, much like many use New Year's Day.

So, today. I'm so thankful for my family - near and far, through birth and marriage, friendship and acquaintance. Those who have stretched me so far as to bring me to a place in my life where I have the ability to let go of lost days and old hurts - to a place where I can look forward, speak for those with no voice, and be all the more thankful for it.
