Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving means different things to different people. To some people, it means turkey, dressing, and Mom's sweet potato casserole. For others it's a day spent in front of the TV set watching football. To many, it's a day to be with family.

Unfortunately, for some it's another day of wondering where they'll sleep, what they'll eat, how they'll stay warm and dry. We have been blessed individually and as a nation. Give thanks today, then tomorrow do something for someone less fortunate. Pay it forward. You'll be glad you did.

Our Canadian Thanksgiving was six weeks ago, but yours coincides with the start of Advent and I'm very conscious of how many people aren't able to face this season with uninhibited joy. I like your pay-it-forward approach, Richard. Excellent idea.
