Celebrating My Two Favourite Gifts!

"Grow Old with Me, the Best is Yet to Be." - R. Browning

When I count my blessings, I count these two. Joseph Raymond and Joseph Sebastien celebrate their birthdays on May 16 and 17. In honour of their Acadian roots, both men's first names began with Joesph and carry the surname Aucoin. They are also friendly, determined, loving people who value family and friendship. I know and experience the awesomeness of these two men. However, it’s great to hear others share the joy of knowing them, working with them, and joining them on their journey.

My health has suffered many setbacks over the past five years. They held my hand every step of the way and cheered me on from the sidelines. Every day, I refocus on “why” I work hard to live life over cancer. These two are at the top of the list. I want to grow old with Ray and celebrate Sebastian's adult life. There is no greater motivation than loving these men and being loved by these men

Today I support them in celebrating their special days. As I prepare their meal, I will fondly remember the years of life I spent with them. I will pray and ask for support to live and celebrate many more years with them and I will cherish every moment of this day.

Happy birthday J. Ray and J. Sebastien! Grow old with me, the best is yet to come!
