Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
The big news of the week was about the two troublemakers (for lack of a better word) who murdered a couple up north and then another man as well. Sure makes us wonder what this world is coming to!! We had not heard anything further about them being found, but recently the news was released that their bodies had been found in the Gillam area! ! What a relief to those in that area, knowing what the two were capable of…
Well, I was raving about all the little grandchildren and great grandchildren we have in the Kootenays in B.C. in a recent article. This week I simply have to share our excitement about our newest addition, Xavier, who is now 7 months old. What a little perfect treasure! When we last saw him, he was fairly new to the world and then he was off to Ontario with his parents, where they reside. We got to visit mother and son this week at our son and daughter-in-laws’ home. What a happy little guy! Our granddaughter Keely showed me the little toy he was playing with. A Grandma often wonders how they actually impact the lives of their beloved grandchildren. How my heart was blessed to have her shake the toy, and the song that it played was Let the Sun Shine In. When Keely was a young girl, she was blessed with a lovely singing voice and was interested in singing. I had been involved with some singing groups over the years and she was anxious to learn some songs. I can remember her practicing her singing in our garden as our addition to the house was being built. She was learning that lovely old song Let the Sun Shine In and she wanted to get it perfect, as that summer we were taking the grandchildren with us to our cousin’s threshing festival on the farm in Langenburg. She sang it as a performer -like a PRO! Here she is now with a young baby, showing me her little baby’s toy, saying LISTEN!…. The first song her little baby boy was going to be familiar with was Let the Sunshine In! Brought tears to this Nanas eyes for sure!!
Our son and grandson enjoyed a great fishing trip last weekend, although they did not bring any fish home, They were very happy with the amount of fish caught,– just caught and released, as some of their family have allergies and are especially allergic to FISH! Good old Dad said: Well you could have at least brought them home for US to eat!!! Now we have the BUG to go fishing – have boats and all the gear we require, but we are always too busy “doing nothing” to go fishing… It is now on our bucket list for this summer!!!
We had a lovely trip from home to Gray Creek, B.C. We have travelled to see our daughter and her family who live in Gray Creek many times over the years, but this was the first time we ever drove the whole way without stopping somewhere for the night. We just kept on driving until both of us realized it WAS not impossible!
