Thanksgiving Day...

Here in Canada, we're celebrating Thanksgiving. And I am truly grateful this day. As I look back on my life, distant and recent, I am grateful to all the people who've crossed my path, even those who've hurt me. Each of them forced me deeper into myself, deeper into the beliefs I held about myself and the world around me, deeper into the true essence of who I am. And it is from this depth that I'm arose many times, renewed, the phoenix from the ashes.

I have been blessed with many wonderful people of late. I have found friends in the most unlikely of places. I have found kindred spirits in my customers and co-workers. People who were once strangers have become my most ardent supporters. And my dear brother who continues to be there every step of the way on my life's journey. And there are my blog readers. Some I know. Some I don't. You have supported me through your comments and emails. When my book comes out one day, it will be your support that I recall.

To all of you, near and far, I send love and hugs on this day.

How can we regret the experiences that have made us who we are? It is unthinkable.

In the end we regret the things we didn't do. It seems by your blog that you are choosing to do much, great!
