family is everything

Anniversary


 
From that beach in Tunisia all those years ago to the Sword Fern Trail in the Pacific Spirit Park, as we celebrate our 47th Wedding Anniversary today after a week of pure joy and love with all the family, and feeling like the luckiest parents and grandparents in all the world.
 

❤️❤️❤️

a special day

Happy Birthday to our grandson “Now we are two” and Happy Anniversary to the ones responsible “Now they are “seven”.

Love them all to bits ❤️

“now we are six”


 
Happy Sixth Birthday to our beautiful granddaughter ❤️ So happy we could celebrate this special day with her now that we can finally travel here in the Province of British Columbia.

Father’s Day

Je n’ai pas une pipe.

Happy Father’s Day, as I remember my own father and grandfather, and say thank you to my amazing children and grandchildren for all their love on this special day.

My thoughts, as always, are of all those children who have no father to give their love to in this troubled world of ours, especially the nine year old boy who lost his whole family in the terrorist attack in Ontario earlier this month. He is very much in my thoughts today.

reunited at last


 
The reunions of Mino and his brother Erick with their mother Keldy Mabel Gonzales Brebe, and Bryan Chavez with his mother Sandra Ortiz, all separated so cruelly in the fall of 2017, are moments for which there are no words but simply feelings of joy and relief for them all.
 

 

So many more families must be reunited but these happy reunions are moments for celebration.

two special bouquets


 
A little get well bouquet for my beautiful granddaughter whose leg is in a cast today. There’s no one braver and I love her to bits.❤️
 

 
And a second little bouquet for our other beautiful granddaughter whom I love just as much, after her first ballet recital today. What a star she is.⭐️❤️

best moment of any day


 

The best moment of any day is when I am able to read to our beautiful grandchildren.

the seal of approval


 
What could be a more enjoyable way to spend an afternoon than FaceTiming with my beautiful granddaughter today creating a virtual collage, with her request for an erupting volcano, lava and a dinosaur 🦕 which I’m happy to report received the seal of approval. 😉 ❤️
