Family Life, Family Style, Family Time

Reflecting today as the sun streams in the window of my kitchen about how the weekend was truly about the family. An interesting time, recently, in Alberta, and specifically Calgary, as people are highly concerned about the drop in oil prices, the effected real estate market, the dwindling economy and perhaps eventual slip into a recession (ohh, I know, as very nasty word here in Alberta!). However, it is imperative to focus on what is important, and Family day this year could not have come at a better time: no alarm clock on Family day, just wake up naturally and, upon getting out of bed, shut off the devices, lock the office and head out the door for fun and being together. Hopefully, others like myself were able to get away from it all by spending time with family and friends. For my daughter and I, we headed out to Banff with some good friends and took in a day of sunshine in the mountains, a walk along the Bow River, and eventually ending up in the 39-degree warmth of the Banff Hot Springs. The three-hour drive there and back went by fast, as no better situation then to have one’s attention than to be sitting and engaging in conversation, aside from enjoying the scenery out the window. It was awesome, as I chose to be with in a special space and time, sharing it with friends and family. How did you spend this past Family day?
