Woo Hoo Olympians!!!!

Woo hoo!!!!!!!! What an amazing hockey game!!!! Both teams played so well and both deserved to win, but I am ecstatic that Canada won. It was the perfect way for Team Canada and Canadians to wind up the 2010 Olympic games.

I'm so proud of all of our Olympic athletes -- both from Canada and around the world. In my opinion, no matter what country they played for and no matter if they won a medal or not, every single Olympian is fabulous!!

Congratulations Canada on an amazing 2010 Olympics!!! Congratulations athletes of the world for 17 wonderful days!! As Michael J. Fox said, you are all Canadians now :) I hope you will all come back to visit someday and will consider our home your second home.

God bless you all :)

Go Canada

I've been watching the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics a fair bit over the last week. I'm so proud of our Canadian athletes. They've shown so much strength, dedication and perseverance. I think every one of them is a hero for representing our wonderful country with such pride. I've cheered for every Canadian athlete :) Every one of them makes me proud to be a Canadian.

I cried tears of joy and pride when Alexandre Bilodeau won our first gold medal on Canadian soil and my heart soared during the medal ceremony when our beautiful anthem was played as the flags were raised. What an amazing moment!!!! That pride is just as strong for Maelle Ricker, Christine Nesbitt and Jon Montgomery for their gold medal wins. Congratulations to all of them for winning gold on home soil!!!! Congratulations to Jenn Heil, Mike Robertson, Kristina Groves and Marianne St-Gelais for their medal wins!!!!

Congratulations to all of our athletes!!!! You are all amazing, you are all heroes, and you all make us so proud to be Canadian!!!

Go Canada go!!!!

A Journey

Every journey begins with a single step. When I get up on Thursday I will be taking the first step on one of the most important journeys of my life. Wish me luck :)

I Believe

I believe there is a light at the end of this tunnel.

During the last two years it hasn't been easy to see it, I haven't always remembered that it is there even in the darkness, but it has always been there.

I believe that I will make it to the other side of this journey. That I will reach the top of this mountain. That the hands that are helping me with each step on this road will never stop leading me towards the goal.

The journey of my lifetime begins right here, right now. I will persevere. I will not give up. I will do what I have to do and I won't be doing it alone.

There is a light at the end of this tunnel and I WILL make it.
