CELEBRATING CANADA

Let’s celebrate Canada every day,
not just July 1st each year,
remembering how fortunate
we are to be living here.

We have so many opportunities
and also the freedom to choose.
Participating is what’s important,
no matter if we win or lose.

We can express opinions
on all topics to which we relate,
by word of mouth or in print—
that’s a big reason to celebrate.

Natural beauty is evident
in this vast country of ours,
rivers, lakes, mountains, forests,
meadows – I could go on for hours.

Appreciate all your surroundings,
both near to you and far,
whether you’re walking close to home
or going for a drive in your car.

Take a quiet moment
to be grateful, to feel at peace,
it empowers body, soul and mind
and allows stress to be released.

Celebrate with family and friends,
associates and neighbours too.
Be aware of your surroundings
and treasure each unique view.

Jean Kay

Have a safe and wonder-filled long weekend everyone.

HAPPY CANADA DAY

July 1st in a heat wave,
Happy Canada Day.
Take time to honour our country
and celebrate in your own way.

We have so much to be grateful for.
Start each day with gratitude
for all the freedoms we possess,
our health relies on a good attitude.

Natural wonders are within reach
mountains, rivers, lakes, the sea,
beautiful trees, flowers and fields
All available for you and for me.

Let’s celebrate each other –
neighbours, family and friends.
with a smile, handshake, a cheery “Hello”,
or a phone call to make amends.

Be safe when you are traveling,
be courteous, helpful and kind.
Be proud you are a Canadian
and keep gratitude on your mind.

Happy Canada Day

CANADA DAY

Sunshine, blue skies, birds singing,
garden growing every day,
an amazing world we live in –
Happy Canada Day.

I’m so pleased my parents decided,
sixty-one years ago,
to move our family to Canada
where, they knew, opportunities grow.

We enjoy so many freedoms here,
language, culture, written word,
religion, foods from our native lands,
freedom to speak out and be heard.

So much to be grateful for
in Canada, our homeland,
natural beauty of many kinds
to explore throughout the land.

Here in Canada’s southwest corner
we have mountains, fields and the sea,
a natural playground to enjoy.
I feel blessed to be here, being me.

Happy Canada Day
