Today is Alberta Family Day...

Dear Children, Good Morning.

Alberta Family Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February. It is a statutory holiday in Alberta. Alberta Family Day was declared to recognize the values held by the pioneers who built Alberta and the values of home and family.

I know of no other place where happiness abides more securely than in the home. It is possible to make home a bit of heaven. Indeed, I picture heaven as a continuation of the ideal home. There is beauty all around when there's love at home. There is joy in every sound when there's love at home. Peace and plenty here abide, smiling sweet on every side. Time doth softly, sweetly glide when there's love at home.

Families are a source of hope, stability, and love. On Family Day, we celebrate the special bonds that link children and parents, and we recognize the importance of parental involvement in the lives of their children. By providing guidance, support, and unconditional love, families help shape the character and future of our Nation.

In an environment of love, discovery, and adventure, we inspire and empower families to achieve excellence.

Wish you a Happy Family Day!

With Love, Amma-Naana

What we live with we learn, and what we learn we practice, and what we practice, we become and what we become has consequences...
