Jasper is spectacular

The JPL is a beautiful log building. Apparently the Boone and Crockett (Elk antlers largest in the world) was shot by my dad and now hangs above the huge river rock fireplace in the lodge. The building is incredible. The wood work amazing.

We were all given rooms in this row of cabins, front and back doors and beautiful patios with lawn chairs which soon became our happy hour area.

This was our room....very lovely beds with huge pillows....loved it.

Proud To be a Nurse

This last week was spent with old friends.....26 old friends from my Edmonton General Hospital School of Nursing. To say the week was special,awesome, emotional,heartwarming and worth every minute spent reminiscing and laughing was certainly an understatement.Most of us worked right to Retirement, or being forced out by Health care budget shortfalls and 4 are still making our class proud. I am so proud to be a nurse and felt the same sentiment from 26 friends. This week I will Photo shop my pics and I know laugh and cry again....and maybe share a few with you,dear standby.

Need to belong

Do you remember those times when you were in Cabos or where ever and the girls were getting braids on the you did too even though you had thin hair and a face shaped like a volley ball; or after hours of in depth fun, dancing, laughing you made your calcified joints move at an angle not done since 66. or when someone got the "fun" idea to take all of our bras and tie them to the car aerial and drive through downtown Sprucegrove.....aerials??? old lady talking. My thoughts here are....Group gatherings especially if it's one of my girl friend groups can make you want be a participant instead of just being a listener and so your thinking changes and you begin to see similarities in your life that you never saw before. situation,read relationship, as much as I like to be a joiner may not be THAT generous...

Happy Anniversary to weird us

We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love. ~Robert Fulghum, True Love

There are times when I cannot understand the meaning of and lessons in Life. I am a Capricorn....the scheduler of life events....the Day Timer of all things in life requiring organization....the always there and never shirking pillar of responsibility. I hate lack of commitment, cannot understand failure and will stop at nothing to keep things from falling when people I love run into bumps, bends and destruction of their path of life I am heartbroken for them. In my tiny,controlled world it would devastate me. I would need institutional care and doubt I could use it as a learning life experience. This week I am struggling with my friends broken relationship and imminent move to the east. In this same week I will be celebrating my 44th wedding anniversary and cannot seem to move past the heartbreak of my friends. I only know this for sure....I am blessed to be partnered with my man who must also be like minded in the nevergiveupalwaysworkatit philosophy of our commitments made 44 years ago.....also I realized from the beginning my life not only would be challenged by this man but would be better if he could share it with me...and...I was right.
