No longer forward nor behind

I look in hope or fear;

But, grateful, take the good I find,

The best of now and here.

– John Greenleaf Whittier

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. It may surprise you to know that Canada’s first Thanksgiving dates back to 1578 when Martin Frobisher gave thanks (in what is now Newfoundland and Labrador) for surviving the long journey to discover a northern passage to the Orient.

I hope this Thanksgiving finds you in the comfort of family and friends. They make a long journey easier to make.
