Simple gifts

Today,  our national celebration, I celebrate the simple gifts.

Dandelions clutched in a toddler’s hand.

Twitter, especially when it makes me LOL – literally .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spectacular landscape that is the view for my daily commute.

 

 

 

 

The hope and raw potential seen in graduates.

Canadians are very fortunate. We live in a wealthy democracy with abundant resources and infrastructure. This is no simple gift. Happy birthday, Canada!

Blessed, blessed and blessed again. Let’s celebrate.

About Esmé Comfort

My husband Jim and I moved to the Bow Valley in 1980, settling in Canmore in 1983. Both my children were born in Canmore and attended K -12 in Canadian Rockies Public Schools District (CRPS), French Immersion. For the past six years I served as vice-chair of the board. Alberta Government support to the CRPS Inspiring Hearts & Minds initiative created opportunities for provincial, national and international outreach. In the past I held positions on the Canmore Daycare Board, the preschool board, and various school councils/PACs; I served as president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French for five years and sat on the provincial board for two. I currently sit on the board of the Canmore Folk Music Festival, work full time at an events management firm and edit, copy-edit and proofread on contract. My husband and I ran a small main street business for 18 years: supply and install floor wall and window coverings.
