Summer - 2017

The beginning of summer has come leaving Spring of 2017 behind to new summer days.  My niece is graduating grade 12 this year and it makes me realize how quickly the time has gone by since the first time I saw her beautiful face.  She will now be on her way to making her own life as many young graduates do.

Summer is also a time to relax and take some time off to enjoy the warm season.  Perhaps at home or camping or visiting other places towns or cities.  Beautiful flowers in gardens have been appearing to remind us of how wonderful our world is and pleasing to the eye.  Children will be out of school very soon too for the summer so enjoy their time as they grow up fast, graduate and make a life of their own.

To all of you out there .... have a marvelous summer and do something special!!

And to all Graduates out there.... Congratulations and Best Wishes in the next stage of your life.

Spring

It is a new season and Spring always is a renewal of all things. Birds return to nest and life starts anew. Trees and grass come back to life and plants start their growth for another new season.

I too have started to renew. It has been a tough time coming to this point however life continues and so must I. Family and friends alike have been with me all the way. Thank God for this. Many changes in the last 7 months have made my transition easier.

My Faith has kept me strong and I will always be grateful and thankful I have Jesus to guide me through the good times and the tough testing times! Stay with me and keep up the Faith.

Happy New Spring!!

Being Strong

It is now November and many things have completely changed in my world from my last post back in January 2016.  I have had many people around me being supportive, lifting me up, caring about me and I am truly grateful.  Boots left this earth in February which was a very tough time for both Larry and me.  With Larry now gone it makes the days much more difficult to get through.  However, in all this I have put my trust in the Lord and He has guided me through.  Placing many people by my side to give me strength.  It is the Lord who has given me my strength through these times and will continue to do so.

I thank Him for all the wonderful people He has placed in both Larry's and in my life.  Our family has been a great comfort and as time goes by I know I can count on them.

Thank you to all who have been there for both Larry and me in these really hard times.  God Bless all of you for He is good and so are all of you!

A Cold Day

Here it is the middle of January and we have a very cold day today! We have been Blessed with awesome weather this year so far. A bit of snow for our husky to play in and today a little cooler then it has been. It is also my daughter's birthday today. My how time flies by. I just finished a birthday a couple weeks ago and my baby girl is now another year older today.

I look forward to spending some time with her and the grandchildren in the very near future. As for the cold day today, we will take Boots for a walk in the country, enjoy the crisp, cool temps and later enjoy time with our neighbor over a cup of hot toddy! Enjoy life as it comes.  It's a gift!

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas to one and all.  Another Christmas year has come and gone. Does anyone remember why we celebrate Christmas?  The hussel and bussel to ready for the season and have gifts bought for all. But it is not about all the gifts and food or the holiday cheer. Its about the baby Christ Child born on Christmas day to save us all from our sins. How many people remember or know this?

It is to easy to forget as we make our plans for the season.  Christ is the reason for the season!  Let's not forget that is why we have a Christmas.

So I'd like to wish to one and all a Joyful Christmas because Christ was born and He's with us all year long! May joy be in your heart because Jesus was born on Christmas day and is with you always.

Holidays/Retirement

Here it is almost September 14, 2015.  It has been 1 month since I'm on holidays. Shortly I will retire from my 25 year career with the RCMP.  It has been a great career and I have enjoyed my time there.  Now on to new adventures which I'm sure will take me to places I've not been to before.  Sure I will be able to see my grandchildren more. In fact I get to look after 1 of them for part time!  These are the special times as they grow so fast.

I will be spending more quality time with my husband Larry!  We usually do a lot of things together and now we hope to do more but different things together.  Looking forward to free time for other things now that I'm retiring.

Here's to retirement!!
