Dear bloggers and friends, I got this message from WordPress today and it really made my day. WOW!!! Time just flies and here I am looking at the eight years of blogging. It’s hard to believe as it looks like yesterday when I started this blog. News like these cheer me up during this pandemic time. I’m celebrating at home and in my heart wishing for better times for everyone as these are hard times. I can see a little flickering light at the end of the tunnel for all of us. Let’s keep flying high and not lose sight of our destination. Cheers!!!
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!You registered on WordPress.com 8 years ago.Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
“A million thanks to WordPress for providing such a great blogging platform”.
Covid-19 is changing the way Remembrance Day 2020 will be marked. We are asked to “remember in place” at home and watch the public service online. Places where hundreds gather every year to remember those who fought for Canada, would be closed. There will be no parades, or screens for viewing the ceremony on site. A limited number of official wreathes will be placed at the Cenotaph and the public is asked not to gather to place poppies on the memorial. These are hard times, but nevertheless we remember with passion the sacrifices made to preserve our freedoms and we are eternally thankful.
To all who have served in all branches of the military: “you have preserved our freedoms and we thank you for it, from our hearts”.
Dear bloggers and friends, At these challenging times when I become overwhelmed with the reality of the pandemic, I often listen to this amazing ‘Prayer” and it comforts me and I feel as if the words of this beautiful prayer are touching my heart and the inner depths of my soul. I thought I’ll share it with you.Bless you all.
This Thanksgiving will be very different than past years. With covid-19 cases surging all across Canada, health officials are requesting people to celebrate in smaller family bubbles. Virtual events, and social distancing in the indoor as well as outdoor events are certainly things to be grateful for, this year.The current unprecedented situation does give us a pause to meditate and think what really matters in our lives and to appreciate the blessings of our lives. Let’s be kind, and caring for those who are less blessed than us.
As Canadians, we have been blessed with abundance so let’s give thanks for our abundance.
“Giving thanks for abundance is greater than abundance itself.” Rumi
“This year isn’t like other years. But even these challenging times are a good opportunity to think about what it means to be Canadian. I’m inviting you. whoever and wherever you are, to take part in all the great activities we have planned. Today, Canada’s history-our values, our talents and our creativity-are on display for the whole world. Today is our day-Happy Canada Day!”
-The Honorable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage.
Dear Bloggers and friends,
This is not our usual Canada Day as Canada Day celebrations come during a pandemic. However, we can say we are celebrating pandemic-friendly Canada Day. Safety is the top priority, as social distancing protocols are in place and no large gatherings are allowed. This does not mean we are not going to have fun. Virtual celebrations will be streamed online and we’ll enjoy virtual fireworks. We may be apart physically but we’re finding new ways to be together virtually. Happy Canada Day to all!!!
July 1st is the 153 anniversary of the Confederation. We also salute the key role of the Metis’ Nation in bringing Manitoba into the Confederation 150 years ago.

My Quote For My Struggle
“I am prepared to suffer and be terrified and may stumble and fall, but I will not be overcome by fear, and if I fall I will rise again, for I carry the flag for those who are with me in my struggle.” Samina Iqbal.
Lets thank our Guardian Angels in a special way.
“It would not be a bad notion that the next time you see a Police Officer do wave at him/her in an appreciating manner, pray for his/her well-being. And if you can fully comprehend the intensity of his/her job, and the responsibility he/she accepts of protecting you, a Salute may be in order.” Samina Iqbal
