It’s been a busy weekend and I have my friends to thank for that. Yesterday I was invited to a great southern supper by an American friend who was missing her family on Thanksgiving (but is happy to be in Canada with her new husband and daughter). Today, I visited friends out of town who had recently had some medical issues (which were taken care of by the Ontario Health Plan). I realized that when I was giving thanks on Saturday, I didn’t say thank you to this great country we live in. I’m thankful for my friends but even more thankful for Canada. It’s not perfect and as citizens we have a responsiblity to make it the best place possible. That’s my challenge for all of us – do something to make it better.
