Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, held six weeks before American Thanksgiving. A tradition dating back to 1578 when British explorer (and sometimes pirate haha) Martin Frobisher and his crew safely arrived in Newfoundland on a journey to find the Northwest Passage through the Arctic. Despite not having found the Passage, Frobisher and his crew held a feast in their new lodge of Newfoundland in appreciation for being alive after such a tumultuous journey.
While few of us can claim to have risked their lives in an overseas expedition or by being a pirate (!!!), we can all find something worth being thankful for. Without this sounding too much like a Kindergarten activity, here's a few things I'm thankful for, and I urge you to think of some too.
