International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day, a day we recognize the contributions women have made and continue to make in our society and around the world. The people that have had the most profound impact on me and my life are my wife and daughter. 

My wife is the reason I am who I am today, she helped me get through university, all three degrees. When I see her, I am in awe of all she has done and continues to do. She is a working mother of two and a very successful business person. She inspires me every day with her perseverance and resilience, she is my rock and my best friend.

We have been fortunate enough to have two amazing children, a son and a daughter. My daughter is our youngest and she also never ceases to amaze me. She is an incredible student in her grade 10 year and a high performing athlete that has been lucky and strong enough to have competed on the international stage. She has always done this with grace and confidence, she is her mother's daughter, full of life and energy.

These two women in my life are amazing people​ who I am thankful for every single day. 

Who are the women in your life you are thankful for?
