Happy Birthday!

Today is my mother's 80th birthday. She lives in a nursing home in New Brunswick and next week one of my sisters and I will be going down to visit with her for a couple days. I wish I could spend more time with her but the cost to travel limits how often I can go down.

Mum's birthday has me thinking though about family and what's important in life.. and like the song says, life is about the people you love.  The song is one by Lynn Miles; she's a musician from right here in Ottawa. I made this video with family photos, some are not the best as they are scans of old family photos but the feeling is there.  In life, the people you love are all that really matters so we need to cherish them and tell them they are loved.
