CELEBRATING CANADA

CELEBRATING CANADA

Let’s celebrate Canada every day,
not just July 1st each year,
remembering how fortunate
we are to be living here.

We have so many opportunities
and also the freedom to choose.
Participating is what’s important,
no matter if we win or lose.

We can express opinions
on all topics to which we relate,
by word of mouth or in print—
that’s a big reason to celebrate.

Natural beauty is evident
in this vast country of ours,
rivers, lakes, mountains, forests,
meadows – I could go on for hours.

Appreciate all your surroundings,
both near to you and far,
whether you’re walking close to home
or going for a drive in your car.

Take a quiet moment
to be grateful, to feel at peace,
it empowers body, soul and mind
and allows stress to be released.

Celebrate with family and friends,
associates and neighbours too.
Be aware of your surroundings
and treasure each unique view.

Have a safe and wonder-filled long weekend everyone.

My Garden Christmas Eve

MY GARDEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE

Carrots from my garden
will be part of Christmas dinner.
To be gardening on Christmas Eve
makes me feel like a winner.

We still have roses blooming,
primrose are showing their heads.
Birds are noisily feeding
before they seek their beds.

A Downy Woodpecker, Hummingbirds,
Chickadees, Pine Siskins, Juncos,
Sparrows along the hedgerow,
are all birds that come and go.

Soggy lawn but lush and green,
kale is still prolific.
To live here on Canada’s south west coast
I feel blessed, it is terrific.

Merry Christmas Everyone

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

2015 Oct 11 s

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

On this Thanksgiving Sunday
I gaze out to the east
at another lovely sunrise,
to my eyes and soul, a feast.

I’d like the peace and quiet
I’m experiencing right now
to be felt worldwide in others
as we all connect somehow.

I’m grateful I’m alive and well
in my spirit and my soul.
I can overcome aches and pains
that make me feel less than whole.

Today we’ll cook a turkey
to share with family and a friend.
It will be a fun and happy time
as our personalities blend.

Some of us have challenges
that are difficult to face,
but we’ll be guided through them
with loving support and Grace.

Happy Thanksgiving
