Thanksgiving

As many of you may know, I am a Canadian citizen. I grew up in Toronto Canada and it is the place I call home. It is actually where my parents and brother reside. Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and I miss home terribly. To celebrate the day, I woke up and decided to be grateful today no matter the events of the day. I cleaned and decorated the house, so it felt like Thanksgiving. I had turkey pot pie for lunch, and for dinner I prepared a spicy mango & BBQ chicken; baked mac and cheese; tomato seasoned rice and a salad crowned with feta cheese, bacon, almonds and cranberries. for desert; Italian wedding cookies and almond cookies. It was wonderful, there were all aspects of my multicultural existence in the meal I prepared. I am grateful to be alive and although my children rolled their eyes at me celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving, I enjoyed myself never-the-less. I am committed to being and staying in a state of gratitude.
Soul Purpose is doing very well, there is so much wonderful stuff happening and unfolding and for all of it, I am grateful. The products have turned out beautifully and there are many more to come; our partnership with Youngevity has been a blessing that still has not been fully realized; our partnership opportunities keep growing and unfolding it is so amazing. Most of all we have an extraordinary community of entrepreneurs who have embarked upon and committed themselves to the Soul Purpose business, more than anything else to them I am so grateful because they make it happen and they make it real each and every day.
Soul Purpose is blossoming into a wonderful community of people, partners, products, opportunities and entrepreneurs.
Oh before I forget to mention, I began the day today with a beautiful succulent mango that my friend Cynthia Barnum sent me 2 weeks ago but just fully ripened this morning. Mangoes are my favorite fruit, they are abundant in Trinidad where I was born and they are the fruit of my childhood. Another beautiful aspect of today for which I am extremely grateful.
So happy Canadian Thanksgiving to everyone, it is a great day of gratitude indeed.
Much love,
Nadine

In keeping with the theme of Thanksgiving, I just want to thank you Nadine for what you have done. I'm very grateful that you have created this community and this opportunity for me. Because you are the gracious and beautiful and generous person that you are, I have the opportunity to carve out a life for myself that I have always envisioned. In keeping with that, I want you to know that no matter how long it takes for things to work out (the little things that people who don't know any better blow out of proportion), don't worry about negativity, because your community will always support you. Never worry that this community has lost faith...we haven't and we never will. I just had to tell you that...again, thank you. Best wishes for your continued success! Love, Light and happiness~Rhonda
