What's the secret to rich rewards in life? Is it Learning? Curiosity? Awareness? Relationships? Love? What is the secret to living a rich life? I had the privilege of going on two road trips over the holidays with one of my favourite people in the whole world.
"The best things in life aren't things." I came across this quote posted on a church sign and I thought how appropriate to share with you this Christmas time. Christmas is a time to reflect on the best things of life.
There’s an old saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I think that’s absolutely true. We went to Mexico as a family for a week right up until Christmas day. It was so great to get away to relax, play lots of beach volleyball, eat lots, snorkel in the ocean and cave dive as a family.
I have a funny story to tell. My youngest son commented on our Instagram post after my personal monthly column was posted last month. What I found humorous and intelligent all at the same time was that he made the comment in third person and said “what about Sam, you haven’t mentioned anything about him but gave an update for everybody else in the family”.
In this photo with Maddy and I is the H.M.C.S Haida, a Tribal-class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1943 to 1963. What you probably don’t know about me is that I was the lead character in a documentary made about the ship when I was 14 years old.
