It seems that the older I get – the more I repeat myself. So I’ll say it again…”I’m proud and HAPPY to be a Canadian!” This weekend is our celebration of Thanksgiving, and we all should openly express exactly that!
If you stop to think, it’s easy to start naming all the things you’re really thankful for. We each have our own list and, for me, it starts with where we live. I believe most of us love our country. Even though we don’t always agree with the politics that are played out across the land, we have the opportunity to try and change that with a vote at the next (upcoming) election. There are certainly many places in the world where that can’t be said.
I’m thankful for the guidance and direction of my parents, for discovering what strong work ethics they both had, and having that further reinforced by my in-laws (Lee and Bernard) after I married Cheryl and became part of their family too.
I’m very, very thankful for my family; to have married the love of my life and shared more than 50 years together, for our two wonderful daughters (Julie and Jill) who are married to great guys and who have given us four grandchildren – grandchildren who, of course, are so special to us!
Finally, I’m very thankful for the years I’ve had in real estate; all the contacts, connections and clients who I’ve come to know. Let me sum it up by saying…Have a great Thanksgiving weekend, and THANK YOU!
