Back on my familiar Island Home

But with bittersweet feelings I am home. It was tremendously hard leaving the family and Jasper yesterday. There are very few places on this earth that I feel I can completely relax and be myself with - my family in Jasper is one such place.

Saying good-bye to my nieces (two generations of now) was painful for me. I don't know what I did right, but they really like me and my company. My brother even told me (during this visit) that his girls (all grown women now) don't think of me as an Aunt, but as a big sister. I take this as a huge compliment, but I still don't know what I did right. Thank you Lord, none-the-less.

Anyway - today is July 1st and Canada's 143rd birthday. I'm not sure what we'll get up to, but we'll enjoy the holiday either way.

Aw, that had to be hard to leave. :( Nice to get away though, and to spend time with them. Glad you had fun.
