I read a great book that said that one of the keys to happiness is being grateful. Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend. I am grateful for that. I think it’s a nice chance to spend a long weekend with family, almost 3 months away from the chaos of Christmas.

I am thankful to have four seasons, and I anticipate each one with great enthusiasm.

I am grateful to our chickens for being exceptional at converting grains and grasshoppers into a very protein dense little package that helps me get through a day of manual labor.

I am thankful for dark chocolate.

I am grateful to the Stone Mills Volunteer Fire Department members who give up their time to make our community safer.
