30 Days of Gratitude – Day 18

Today’s gratitude is about “one good thing which happened today”. Funny enough, many good things happened today. So, I will pick the one good thing which means the most to me. Today is my Dad’s birthday and my Dad is like a cat with nine lives!!!! He is so lucky to be alive today, but […]

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 10

Today’s question is what is the biggest gift in your life right now? Of course the immediate answer for me is God and my faith, but I am going to focus on another gift I am so ultimately grateful for which is my health and Canada’s healthcare system. My mother in law was over for […]

30 Days of Gratitude- Day 11

Today’s question is “what future event are you excited about?”. I am most enthusiastic about when my husband and I will go on our honeymoon despite not having a date picked out anymore due to the Covid19 virus, we are continuing to save money so we can either expand on our travels or bump up […]

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 8

Today I am supposed to write about what is my favorite song and why. I actually lost an hour of sleep last night trying to determine what is my favorite piece of music. With so many genres and centuries of brilliant music which has touched my soul, it was useless for me. I cannot choose, […]

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 4

Today’s gratitude is actually supposed to be yesterday’s, but I wanted to ponder a bit more on what my favorite memory is, as I felt like I am repeating myself. However, there is no denying it, my most cherished memory was the day I said “I do” to my husband, Brian. The whole day was […]

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 3

Day three is a tough one for me as it is “what is your favorite part of the morning?”. I am not a morning person and I don’t like to be spoken to within the first hour of waking. I honestly don’t think I have a favorite part in the morning as all of it […]

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 2

For day two, my gratitude is for something I find comfort in… My faith. And no, it isn’t George Michael’s song nor famed album “Faith” which I am talking about, but my Catholic faith, my faith in God, my belief in a higher power is what gives me tremendous comfort during tumultuous stressful times, sorrow, […]

How Are You Coviding? Working from Home…

The world has changed in ways we would never imagine since the fateful announcement on Friday the 13th of March, 2020. We are all living in a terrifying Global Pandemic also known as Covid19 or the Corona Virus. Many of us have lost jobs, or as in my case, I had a position which came […]

The Lady in the Red T-Shirt and Faded Blue Jeans

I was barely five and I remember her so clearly, her long dark poker straight brown hair, parted in the center which went past her waist. I remember her olive complexion, her warm brown eyes matched with a loving smile. She had a special fondness for me in that moment at the Toronto subway station […]

Lent, Before the Filet-O-Fish

I became a Catholic in 2010 and before I crossed the Tiber River, I was well aware of “Fish Friday” during Lent and how it was specific to the Catholics. I had heard how McDonald’s introduced the Filet-O-Fish to allow Catholics to abstain from meat and still indulge in some salty fast food goodness. What […]
