amm’s cousin and my Godmother, Colleen, called me the other day. She told me that she got a tribute to my mom and asked me to guess. I replied, “Ummm, a designer handbag?” Not quite. Something much better, if you can believe it! Colleen received her Metis status in Saskatchewan. This past summer she began the process and she recently received notice of the approval of her application.

I didn’t get a chance to ask more details as Arrine woke from her nap and we needed to end our conversation. But it was enough to bring tears to my eyes. Good tears.
