Canada Day, my Mum and Me
Today is Canada Day – the day we celebrate the birth of our country. A really good day in many ways.
Today is also the anniversary of my Mum’s death, so today is day that has an edge of melancholy about it. I am not going to say much about this, just that I am full of gratitude for my Mum, for her ongoing presence in my life through her grandchildren (all 7 of them) and that days like today I am remembering her.
I am also grateful for this country called Canada – it is not perfect but it was a great place to grow up and to be an adult in. I am grateful to all those who have built this country and are continuing to do so.
So tonight with the dear one, I will raise a glass and give thanks for Canada and for my Mum.
Happy Canada Day everyone! Miss you Mum!
