October 9, 2020– As Canadians, we celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend. I certainly have a lot to be thankful for, and as I reflect on how fortunate I am, I hope you will do the same with your own introspection. Please remember, some people won’t be surrounded by their families at Thanksgiving; some will be missing from tables because they’re no longer with us, others won’t be present because of familial tensions, and some can’t be in attendance because of obligations at work. Others will be alone because they have no family or close friends. Remember those who are less fortunate and those who are struggling. Don’t just remember them, though; I urge you to spread kindness this weekend and always, to make a difference in the life of one person. All it takes is one small act by each of us to change things for the better.
I’m grateful for the nights that turned into mornings, the friends that turned into family, and for dreams that turned into reality. I’m grateful for my team, for my health and for being able to do what I love every day. I’m grateful for the people that love and support me and for those who push me to be better. I’m grateful for the unconditional love of my pets and for my wonderful nephews and niece. And I am so grateful for each one of you.
From all of us at Pandamonium Publishing House, we’d like to wish you and yours a very safe and happy Thanksgiving. X LLB
