What a wonderful summer I had after all.
You see, I moved to Aylmer, across the river from Ottawa 3 years ago so I could be closer to my daughter Tania who lives in Ottawa and my sister Mariette who lived 3 hours away in Trenton not far from Toronto. Since moving here, I experienced 3 family reunions. It was heaven for me. Things didn’t work out that well after that and both my sister and daughter stopped being part of my life. Would I get to see much of my family again?
Well, this summer, I had the good pleasure to travel to New Brunswick with my very generous brother Ghislain. We stayed at my brother Laurier’s place and I got to see another brother called Jean-Marie and his daughter Kathie who also stayed at Laurier and Paulo’s place. It was absolutely wonderful. I got to take a lot of photos of the places where I went to school and homes I lived in as a child. It was a walk down memory lane and thanks to my brothers patience, I took some awesome photos.
Conway Academy is another school where I spend time and the next one is called Feller College where I was sent after my time at the Sanatorium.
Later on this summer, I got to go to the Eastern Townships with my brother Raymond and his wife Pauline who is an awesome piano player and composer. I had not visited them for 32 years. I got to meet my little niece Melodie who was only 6 months old at the time.
I saw some beautiful sights in the region of Asbestos where my brother the pastor and teacher lives, Sherbrooke where he also has a house and Lake Magog which is where he had his church when I visited them last.
My summer turned out to be about family after all.
When I lived in British Columbia, I seldom saw my family as most of them were in the Eastern part of the country and I had missed them more then I can tell.
I felt strongly that God was guiding me to this place and now I know that He has. I feel truly blessed and got to see how generous my family was to me and that I was loved by them.
