Happy Thanksgiving, Canada
I give thanks to all our troops and their families.
Some Canadian military families are having Thanksgiving dinner without their loved ones home to share it with them. As I share this holiday with MY family and friends, I am ever thankful for those Canadians whose loved ones are serving Canada overseas.
I am especially mindful of the more than 150 Canadian military families whose loved ones sacrificed all, so that I may have this luxury of doing the whole turkey Thanksgiving dinner thing.
Today, and every day, my heart is filled with gratitude, for each of you.
