Hello, as someone who moved from the slums of Mexico into the beautiful Penticton, British Columbia it’s easy to relax and become grateful through my thoughts. It’s such a wonderful place this is. The nature, the people, the love and the music, the Canadian beer, the sports, the fans, the birds and the bright blue sky on a sunny day–all of it blows my breath away!

I’m so grateful to have what I have here after working so hard with my son Joseph to get us up off the ground and now we’re doing so well! The weather is turning around now that it’s spring and we find ourselves playing more and more minor football, and Joseph will be joining a real team this summer. I can’t wait to show off his skills to all the other fathers because he has so much practice already.

People in my area say they can’t wait till winter to go to Mexico but I laugh because that’s where I’m from and I have no desire to go back. I love British Columbia and the Canadian way of life so much. I just wanted to share this today because I have been feeling so optimistic.

So thank you for reading and don’t forget that if you live in British Columbia that you have so much to be grateful for and a negative attitude is really unnecessary here.
