A fellow blogger and journalist, Tracy Chappell passed away. I did not know her personally and only ever met her twice at BlissDom Canada but I loved to read her writing. I would connect with her words, lose myself in her stories and connect with her thoughts.
Long weekends in our house mean family, friends and yummy food. If you’ve seen the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, or if you’re “ethnic” (I use that term very loosely) you might understand what I mean when I say I have a big fat brown family. I can’t use the word desi as my family is rather multicultural. Think united nations. We have Italian, Scottish, Jamaican, Guyanese, Brazillian, Pakistani and Indian and that’s just our immediate family. Our children are beautiful (I am completely biased) and I am forever thankful.
Be kind and generous.
These lines stuck in my head when I watched the 2015 Disney movie Cinderella with my family in theatres a few weeks back. At first I thought it was because it was sage advice, only after the movie did I realize it was because it reminded me ever so much of my own mom.
It was a Tuesday afternoon at the beginning of April 2014. I had been hospitalized with serious health issues for the previous eight days. I had been given a new dose of medication and sent home for a few days until the first of several medical procedures to come. I was excited to be heading home unexpectedly to see my family after several days apart. As my dad drove me home I started feeling a little shortness of breath but figured it was just from the excitement of going home and seeing my family whom I missed dearly. As the afternoon progressed my shortness of breath grew more noticeable, as did my fatigue.
We Day is an event unlike any other. We Day honours, engages and empowers youth to work to be change-makers. It is a one of kind concert for youth where a ticket cannot be bought, it has to be earned. In order to qualify to attend We Day children need to support one local cause and one international cause. The events are free for children to attend thanks to National Co-Title Sponsors RBC and Telus.
What you are about to read is going to blow…your…mind. It’s a never seen before giveaway of EPIC proportions, particularly if you are of the hockey loving persuasion, love watching the Habs play the Leafs and want to know how to use Rogers Game Centre Live.
It’s no secret that I love hockey. It’s also no secret that I like to trash talk hockey on Twitter. Don’t believe me? You may want to give me a follow and come tweet my way when the Habs are playing. It will be on like donkey kong. #GoHabsGo
