Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
This morning I look out my kitchen window and see our beautiful new Canadian flag gently blowing in the wind. How awesome that a person can buy such a beautiful large flag at most Dollar Stores for a mere $3.00, and they can last a full year!! Happy Canada Day!
The Sons of the Pioneers will soon be here for their fundraiser performances on June 21st and I can hardly wait! So many good old songs to enjoy! A person might have a tendency to make the decision not to attend because of the $50 price of a ticket; however, when I mulled the matter over in my mind, and considered the cost of attending the same show or others in Saskatoon, it was a sure thing that it was going to cost much more than that to drive to Saskatoon and back and enjoy these oldtimers and the old songs AND SEE ROY ROGERS JR. and the other performers in person! We do not get to hear such good old music in person any more… Plus we get to assist them in raising money for the Rose Garden Hospice in P.A. and Ronald Macdonald Houses in Alberta… In the last year a very dear friend of ours in Kelowna spent her final days in such a Hospice in Kelowna with her family around her, and our attention was brought in full force to realize what a blessing this was compared to spending her final days in a hospital!
We had intended to be headed for Kelowna by now, but for some reason or other, John was not feeling comfortable about heading out just yet, as here we are, still at home. Sometimes a person feels you should listen to your instincts and change your plans. They were a little disappointed in Kelowna that we did not make it for George’s birthday, but that’s the way it goes…
The garden is planted (despite our initial plan NOT to have one this summer)! We have such good soil here that after John tilled it up, we could not imagine having it sit unplanted. We had seeds left from last year and now all we have to do is water it! The dandelions in our yard have been sprayed but it didn’t slow them down much!
