There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

I was looking back over the last year and I am thankful for so many things. However I am also aware that we are lucky, all of us, to be able to enjoy time. All of my friends who read the blog have time, time for life, their dogs and their families and friends to one degree or another and today I feel really thankful.

I have had a great day, with the company of my friends, family, dogs and more. I was reading back over some old material and it reminded me of an agility friend, one who is sadly no longer with us now but whom I am thankful I knew.

Gary Woodham died very recently from cancer, it came as a real shock to me that someone so young could die so quickly. He was always kind, friendly and had something great to say, I love people like this. We are not blessed with their company for long enough.

So today is a day to be thankful. I am pleased with how everything is, I hope we all have learnt from our mistakes both past and present and am looking forward to tomorrow, we are lucky to be enjoying the Spring - life is a gift, we must value every moment.

"The past is history. The future is a mystery and this moment is
a gift. That is why this moment is called "the present"

I am currently preparing for Canada and can't wait for the opportunity to explore a new place :)

Thankyou Gary - it was a pleasure knowing you.
