Canada

I met with an open mind.
Packed my bags, left this
country behind. I didn't
know what to expect, would
I say hello or mourn with
all my regrets. He made it.
He lives with a new agenda.
The doctors cut, removed
and stitched.. he's good
to go...home. He did, I
met him and his wife..
the whole family are
so nice. I was worried
I wouldn't fit in.. I
don't know why, I'm
crazy, they are too..
I discovered some
amazing people, far
away in the land of
Saskatoon's. We ate
we slept, we got
given around. New
relatives to find.
Generosity, love
and care to name
but a few .
I had a ball
I had a blast, I
wish I could've
stayed, I didn't
want to come back.
Jet lag is a bitch,
still not sure how
or where I am..
leaving was traumatic
I came away sad.
This new family,
my new sisters
in Ca... they're
only an E-mail away.
I will return in two
years time.. I
shouldn't wish my life
away, I wish it was
next week. We phone,
we talk.. we speak.
I got me new family,
friends that go all
the way. Friends
who I consider
with all my every-
things..true. I
love them all..
each and every one
of you.

With the exception of Quebec City (where they are more rude than the real French) I loved the time I spent in Canada... even during the winter....

Savvy ~ Yeah I've only experienced Manitoba and every morning on the way to town Tim Hortons coffee or in my case (I hate coffee) Chai tea one on one with one sugar to go.. came back with box of those tea bags.Winter could be interesting. Minus 40+ 8 feet of snow? Mmmm... but I've heard that Fall is lovely as it is in England.

There is nothing more exciting then a trip you wanted but hesitated at. It sounds like a place you should go every year....lol
Glad you had fun....There is nothing like new family.

Playfully Yours ~ We had planned for this trip two years go. I still wish I could just pack up and go for good, but life is never that simple is it. We e mail pretty much every day. Phone.. I'm happy I went , found my new sisters.. I feel I've known them since forever.. can't wait to go again though.. and I got a good tan! Thanks hun..

How wonderful! It is frightening meeting new people, especially when you're kind of stuck with them but, you seem to have had a fantastic experience. I'm so happy for you!

I couldn't see one reason why they wouldn't love you to bits!

Indi said...

nitebyrd ~ 'Aw.. thank you' I wish I was still there, although surrounded by lush green fields..here, I can't get the place out of my head. But I will return in 2012 for sure.

Canada's autumns are better than England's due to the maple leafs.
