'We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.' Martin Luther King, Jr.

It has been a long week and it has left this Canadian privileged to live and work in America feeling flummoxed. And it's okay to feel this way just like pretty much half of the rest of the population does. To the other half "Contact him and tell him, I support you, I voted for you, and I demand that you stop saying these things." With that said, I challenge us all to embrace the sure things in life among the uncertainty that lies ahead. Here are a few things of what I know to be certain:
I have a lovely job and work for a great company. Thank you.
I have a house of my own that I enjoy with my husband and two lovely children.
We love spending time with our children making every day an adventure.
AND we love spending time with our families, soon Steven's parents will be here for the Thanksgiving week and then a trip to see my entire family come mid-January!
Make yourself a list, it will only make you feel happy inside. Especially during this time where a lot of us are simply trying to understand, cope and if vocal, trying to find the right words to say what will maintain our hope for a better tomorrow and for a better future.
Think happy thoughts, stay calm all and be filled to the brim with hope.
