A Tribute to Beautiful Beatriz

I am grieving the loss of a beautiful friend, Beatriz Zentner, who went to join the angels on Thursday of this week. When Paul and I first moved to the west coast, Beatriz was the first person I met and we bonded right away. We became instant friends. That’s no surprise as Beatriz was such […]

MOM

Happy Mother’s Day! This is that one unique day of the year where we reflect on how important and how special our Moms really are to us. I am blessed to have an amazing Mom. My Mom just turned 90 this past week. I celebrate the fact that I’ve lived my 60 years with her […]

A new year…renewed hope!

I think the resolution for all of us this New Year 2021 is to be OPTIMISTIC! This past year has been one of many global changes, many inconveniences, many disappointments, many challenges, many businesses lost, many people lost, many months without seeing friends and family, no travel, stress on the health care system and the […]

Good Time for Gratitude

I said to Paul the other day, that I don’t like to hear people complain about the tedium or mundane parts of living through the Covid 19 pandemic. When you turn on the news, you are inundated with negatives. Yes, I agree that there are many, many elements of our lives that are being deeply […]

A Lesson for Life

I received the following “life lesson” from my Mom, who received it from a friend in an email. I decided it was worthy of sharing on my website. I feel myself changing in many of these ways, as I turned the milestone birthday of “60” this past September. I believe with age comes wisdom, comes […]

Most of my life has involved a connection with the United States of America, from relatives who reside there, to our family travels there, to purchasing goods from the US, to spending our retiring winters there. We have friends who live there, and I have two sisters […]

Proud & Grateful Canadian

It’s that time of year when we celebrate all that we are thankful for, usually with family and friends around the dinner table full of delicious traditional roast turkey and pumpkin pie. This Thanksgiving is going to be quite different for most of us as we continue to live through the Covid-19 pandemic. I never […]

Living in the slow lane!

One thing is for certain….living with Multiple Sclerosis has moved me into the slow lane. By that I mean I reside in a place of rest, relaxation and calm and nothing is urgent. I have to take my energy as it comes. It’s not something I have a lot of and it’s not a frequent […]

A Different kind of Mother’s Day!

No less important….actually, I think even more important…..but celebrated today in a very different way than we have been accustom to for generations. There is no special family gathering to celebrate Mom. There is no Sunday brunch at her favourite restaurant to celebrate Mom. Mother’s Day is a really important day at the best of […]

Home 40 days and 40 nights!

Just like the title of the 2002 romantic comedy movie “40 Days and 40 Nights”….this is where we are with our time since getting home from the USA. We quarantined for 14 days and then continued to stay home as per our BC health minister Dr. Bonnie Henry’s mandate. We just hit the 40 day […]
