Nine years

Wednesday, March 13th marked nine years since I moved to Canada. And for the first time in nine years I feel like I could live the rest of my life here if I had to. Part of this has to do with my little monkey who makes life worth living. He even makes Winter so much fun with sledding, snow ball fights and much  more. Everyday is a new day with him, while he drives me crazy with his endless smart ass comments, I wake up each day with anticipation of what he will do to surprise me.

Another reason I feel like I could spend the rest of my life here is because of the amazing people I have met since I started teacher's college. I am very thankful for having met these beautiful people because they have helped me realize that I am still the same old person I used to be. I was worried I had turned into a bitter old hag (well in some ways I have), but the crazy nut bag is still alive. Woohoo!

But, like everything else in life I know this too shall pass, by that I mean we will go our separate ways when the time comes. Unlike times gone by I am not going to dwell on that, but savour my time with them. After school we will not be able to meet as often, we won't be on our Facebook page all at once on Thursday mornings as we suffer another boring educational psychology lecture. And we certainly won't be traipsing off for drinks  every Thursday afternoon. So I am making the most of my time with them. Because, at the end of the day it is all you can do. Live each day to the fullest.

Here's to my new friends who make Canada a place worth living in! Here's to my monkey for making each day a celebration and here's to my husband who dragged me out here in the first place :)
