As we pause to give thanks this week-end across Canada, it is a great opportunity to remind ourselves of how blessed we are.
We live in a country that, while not perfect, is among the best and safest countries on the planet. We are blessed with an abundance of natural resources, clean air to breath, inexpensive food, and a roof over our heads. Closer to home, we are thankful for another year of healthy cattle, abundant grass, and big calves. We are thankful for a strong cattle market, and what appears to be a turning of the tide in the beef business.
And finally; most importantly, we are thankful for our friends and family. They are our support network that helps ground us to reality when times are great, but are always there to pick us up when times are tough. Hopefully everyone gets the chance to have a visit or share a meal this week-end with people that are important to them.
