THE GAIO FAMILY 2015 PHOTO ESSAY

THE SUN MAY BE SETTING ON 2015, BUT IT’S BEEN A BIG YEAR AND I HAVE EMBRACED LIFE TO THE FULLEST. CANCER IS BEHIND ME AND, GOD WILLING, I WILL STAY HEALTHY. I’M BACK TO WORK AT BOTH JOBS WHICH CURTAILS TIME FOR ADVENTURES. ALEXANDER, NOW 21, CONTINUES TO STUDY AT RYERSON UNIVERSITY IN TORONTO IN THE FIELD OF URBAN PLANNING. CHRISTOPHER, 19, WORKS AS A LIFEGUARD AND SWIMMING INSTRUCTOR AT OUR LOCAL POOL. PAULO REMAINS AT HOME FILLING HIS TIME WITH INTERNET PROPAGANDA. A PICTURE IS WORTH 1000 WORDS. BECAUSE TIME IS SO PRECIOUS THESE DAYS, AND SINCE I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY, I AM SENDING YOU THE YEAR IN PICTURES. MY WISH THIS SEASON IS FOR YOU TO FIND JOY AND PEACE AMIDST ALL THE CHAOS AND REMEMBER THAT JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. CARPE DIEM,
