I had surgery on 11/18 and am grateful to be well and available to parent my children.

I’m grateful for the beauty of nature that never fails to astonish and delight.

I am thankful for my daughters, my sons, their families, my siblings, my friends, the way they live their lives making a difference in their communities, and the love we have for each other.

I’m grateful my dad is going to get the surgery he needs and I can’t wait to see him next week.

I’m grateful for all the absolutely brilliant color in the leaves this time of year—glowing yellows and gorgeous reds.

I am thankful to my clients who provide me with work. I am grateful to my country Canada which adopted me and of which I am now a citizen. I am grateful for my wife and 2 wonderful girls, 11 and 13.

I’m happy that my sister came to visit for Thanksgiving and that my parents are coming to visit soon.
