The Making of Another Gold Medalist!

There's been a Gold in the making for a few years.
We've been waiting to break this news for a long time.
Who would of known that the whole world
would come to celebrate our birthdays on February 13, 2010!

She was once, this young toothless little wonder.
Innocent from what the big world would bring.
Her safety net was her home.

We encouraged all our children to think about staying close to home
meanwhile helping out on the family farm.
Somehow milking cows was not her fit.

In high school she passionately played basketball,
only to find out that injuries occurred.
I remember the call...

Her first taste of the medical field began,
when she became the patient.
Now, I can see why she loves it...
I'm wondering how severe her condition looks.

Wouldn't life be easy if all patients could be so happy?
Now I can see why she chose the medical profession.

Today, she's reflecting, pondering and meditating.

Tomorrow she's flying high!
A quick call to let me know she has arrived at our local airport.
"Mom, Dad, Can you meet us for pie?"

Working casual in her profession has given her many opportunities.
If she was paid for travelling, she would be rich.
From the Philippines, to Thailand, Hawaii, to New York,
then off to Montreal, with Mexico for Christmas.
and then recently, off to El Salvador...
Do you ever plan to have REAL work?

Does she look like she's suffering?
I wonder what she's planning next.

Today she is proudly wearing her Canadian colors and wondering
if she would be eligible for that first Canadian Gold medal.
Somehow she's giving us the impression that there's a flame burning...
She's out to reach for it and she'll get it!
Congratulations on your new career position!
You've waited and it was worth it.

No matter what she tackles,
it's evident that she pours out her heart and soul.

Remember, one million people were born on our birthday,
which means, we're both, one two in a Million!

We are more than proud to celebrate Canada's Gold medal today!
