• Sleeping or waking, we hear not the airy footsteps of the strange things that almost happen... Yet these things are always right beside our paths." David Swan pg 194 by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Monday, October 10th is Canadian Thanksgiving.

Citizens of Canada and the United States of America live in unparalleled prosperity with so much of EVERYTHING that we grumble about the most minor of lacks of food or clothing, or inconvenience in any little way. We are devastated if electricity or water is off for a short time or our car needs a repair.

Today my cousin posted a Facebook link that made me cry.

I am so foolish and silly. I don't even realize all the wonderful things I have in my life. I take windows and open space, light and air and about a kazillion other things for granted.

Starting today I am going to count my blessings;
one by one by one;
everyday, every single day.

What else do I take for granted?
