Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day everyone! Today is Canada's 149th birthday! I say this every year, but this year more than ever, I am SO proud to be Canadian and to live where I do. As this crazy world just seems to keep getting crazier, as there is more unrest, more tension, and I hate to say it but more hate and prejudice towards our fellow man, I am proud to live in Canada. Our flag is recognized as a symbol of a peace-loving country and our troops are known as peace-keepers. Will we ever see world peace? I don't know...
What are you doing today to celebrate? Attending  a community  event? a parade? a picnic? fireworks? having a special meal with loved ones?  However you choose to celebrate this beautiful day (it's going to be  a mighty hot one here!) take a moment to stop and think about what it means to you to be a Canadian. It makes me very proud and thankful! I've travelled a lot and seen many beautiful places, many I'd like to return to, but there's no where else I'd want to call home. I love you Canada! Happy Birthday!!

PEACE!
Linda

PEACE is not something you wish for; it's something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away." ~ John Lennon

We watched the parade and then headed to the park - as we have been doing for years. Got home before the rain.

Happy Canada Day!! Our country celebrates our birth this weekend too. I often wonder what it would be like to live in another country and I admit that Canada is the only one that I would be comfortable living in besides the USA. We have visited Canada a couple of times. I remember in my youth we used to think about visiting Mexico. I wish we had before it became crazy down there!! You are our best neighbor. I pray for world peace too, but as long as money and the quest for power rule the world I fear it will never be attained. History proves it.
xx, Carol
