A belated Thanksgiving message
Life is tough – I know that just sounds like a cliché, but for many people, it really is true. I know that, even on the scale of being “under the weather and a solo-entrepreneur, if I need to take time out to take care of my health, there is no one to pitch in for me with my clients. So when it gets hard, I think how fortunate I am to have people in my life that love and care about me.
I realize that there are many people who have to do hardship, big and small, alone and have no one in their life to look after them in time of need. For those who are short on support, we can be thankful for all of the great nonprofit resources there are that continue to meet the needs of so many. Some would argue that there are not enough and things still need to change – but we still have to be thankful that there are places people can go to have someone care for them.
Thanksgiving (Canada) … Thanksgiving (French: Action de grâce), or Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l’action de grâce) is an annual Canadian holiday, occurring on the second Monday in October, which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year.
The economy is tough, the weather has turned quickly into winter, and there is a growing number of people who live “without”. I hope that you are thankful for all of the great people in your life, and/or thankful that those who need support have a place to go to be looked after. Please take time to be thankful for all you do have, don’t forget those that have much less than you, and lend a hand where possible.
