Those of you not living in the Dominion of Canada probably don't know that I and my fellow Canucks have been celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. What can I say, we like to do things early. And the second Monday of October is usually a great time to enjoy Autumn in all its glory. Apart from the snow in Winnipeg, of course.
So in honour of this long weekend and historical harvest holiday, I want to acknowledge the things for which I am thankful.
Firstly, my husband, The Leopard, with whom I am building a wonderful and adventurous life. I love the partnership we have and although I've never really been into sports, I truly believe we are the best team the in world.
Secondly, my parents, whose have always been so supportive of me, and who have taught me the importance of humility, humour and self-reliance.
Next, my extended family and my friends, who are all awesome in their own special ways and who have helped shaped me as a person.
I'm also thankful for my health and I'm determined to take it less for granted than I have been and get back to exercising more regularly. Finally, I'm thankful to have a job that I find interesting and rewarding, and to have the means to set career, creative and life goals, knowing that with some effort I'll be able to meet them.
That's a lot for which to be thankful. And it feels good to write it all down and share it. Thanks Internets.
