As National Nurses Week begins in Canada, a big, big thank you to all of our wonderful nurses who have been, and continue to be, there for us each and every day. You are all true heroes. Today we also remember Diana Law who was the first BC nurse to die from COVID-19 just a few weeks ago. I know she will be very much in the thoughts of all of her colleagues at Peace Arch Hospital as she is in mine today. Wishing all of our nurses here in BC and across the country a very Happy National Nurses Week 🇨🇦
On this Mother’s Day I find myself thinking about all the grieving mothers who lost their beautiful children in Kabul yesterday in the horrific bombing outside their school, yet another “Massacre of the Innocents,” as I remember our own wonderful late mother whose favorite expression could not be more relevant today, “Count Your Blessings.” Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers who are the real heroes in their families and especially to the amazing mums in our own family. You are all loved beyond words.
A little get well bouquet for my beautiful granddaughter whose leg is in a cast today. There’s no one braver and I love her to bits.❤️

A bouquet today with love for my beautiful granddaughter who has broken her collarbone and who helped me with the painting over FaceTime; I couldn’t have done it without her. I can’t wait for the day when we can be together again and I can give her the biggest hug. ❤️
