No, it was not the first day of summer! The longest day

As a follow up to yesterday's blog, I can also say that it was probably one of the longest days in my life.

It started with me sitting at my computer and waiting for my friends across Canada to start feeding me with a blow by blow commentary on each step to the royal assent of Bill C-81; the enactment of the Accessible Canada Act!

They did not disappoint me! From Albert in BC to Robin in Saskatchewan, and from Anthony in Montreal to Louise in Nova Scotia, they kept me abreast and at times it felt as if I could just reach out and touch the Governor General as she made her way to the Senate to perform the deed!

I could practically hear the silence as those in the gallery waited with bated breath for her to create history! My palms were soaked and I could feel the chills rolling down my back! Then, like a butterfly coming to rest on my shoulder, it was over and it was time to celebrate!

The tears came furiously and quickly and I was not ashamed to let them roll down my cheeks! It  was over and now it was time to sit back and savour the moment.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advisor, wishing you a terrific day.
