Oh Canada!

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians.  I’ve been feeling strangely emotional today.  Usually, Canada Day is cause for celebration, but passes with little thought for me.  Today, I’ve felt so glad/grateful to be Canadian, thankful for my parents who brought us to Canada when we were young, and for all this country has given us.  This picture was taken the day we became Canadian Citizens.  I’m so glad to share this here…..

I put this little flag on our deck today….

And we went down to Granville Island to take in some of the Canada Day activities.  As you can see, red, white and maple leaves were everywhere.  Happy 150th Canada, thank you for all you’ve given my family, thank you for your diversity, thank you for your tolerance, thank you for being a role model in the world for inclusion, peace and acceptance.  I’m lucky to be here!

Hi Anna!
