    I'm including a link that I think is important. In this day and age we seem to forget how and why this country was founded. We now say things like happy "turkey day" instead of happy Thanksgiving. We say happy "holidays" instead of Merry CHRISTmas. So we are taking the thanks out of Thanksgiving and Christ out of Christmas.

    These are just some thoughts. I find myself VERY thankful for the many blessings in my life. I have a great wife and daughter at home to greet me each evening when I come in. I have a nice home in a wonderful neighborhood. I have a great faith community. I could go on all day but it suffices to say that I am thankful to God for everything that he has blessed me with.

    May God bless all of you.

    Im jealous... Its been 2 weeks this saturday since I been fishing. Not good.

    Also Paul ... excellent post. We should all really take a step back and be thankful for what we have. Many of us push trying to break to the next level but fail to stop and look at what we have right in front of us
    God Bless

    I know what you mean, Billy. Like missing church on Sunday.

    Please excuse my ignorance, however, does Canada celebrate Thanksgiving or have an equivalent holiday ??

    Yes we do celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada. Ours is generally a month or so before yours... (October 6-8 this year) and we get the Monday off as a statutory holiday.

    Great neighbours share great traditions....
