Today an official letter arrived from my MLA's office, which read:
"On behalf of his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, I am pleased to inform you that you have been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal."
The letter went on to say that I was being invited, along with two guests to the presentation ceremony which will be held on January 25th, 2013.
WOW! I am deeply humbled to receive this incredible honour and eternally grateful to those who had a hand in my nomination. (You know who you are.)
What an amazing way to kick off the new year!
