Embracing a New Decade: Celebrating 60 Years of Life

"Grow old with me, the best is yet to be!" R. Browning


How fortunate I am to be turning sixty years old. Over the years I have experienced amazing moments, moments that have challenged me, and the everyday moments we call life. As the fifth of seven children, I was blessed to have six siblings with whom I could share my life. We had great parents who taught us that love conquers all and is the greatest gift in life that a person can give and receive. Throughout our lives, many joined our family in celebrating our joyous occasions. During the difficult times, my mother's favourite and most memorable saying was, "What is allotted cannot be blotted." She wanted us to believe that these challenges did not define us, and to believe that a bright future was our destiny. We all now share this quote in support of our children.


My destiny would see me meet my wonderful life partner in university. By marrying Raymond, I gained a wonderful in-law family who have shown us a never-ending love and beauty of the Acadian culture. Later we would welcome our most cherished blessing, our son. Sebastien and his four-pawed siblings; Lockey, Brooklyn and now Tavis gave and continue to give us treasured moments of family. This past year, we welcomed Sebastien's partner Randi. My parents would have loved to have met this kind and loving young woman.


For the past sixty years, I was gifted the love and support of many friends and extended family, who became friends. They cheer me on in my hard times and celebrate with me in my happy times. My friends connect me to the past, share with me the present, and join me to envision a bright future.


Tomorrow begins a new day and a new decade for me. Before I conclude this day, I want to thank everyone who took the time to wish me a happy birthday. Your calls, texts, visits, and posts mean so much to me. I wish every one of you to grow old with me, I promise the best is yet to be.
