This morning I enjoyed my new Winsor & Newton pro marker brush and blender from Opus Art Supplies. The Xmas bouquet was from dear friends and is displayed in a treasured vase that was a wedding present of my wonderful late parents from their marriage in 1936.
As I remembered mum and dad today my thoughts were also of the parents in Australia grieving the loss of their beautiful children who died so tragically as their bouncy castle was blown up into the clear blue sky. My heart breaks for them all as I know yours does too.
Yesterday Canada recorded its 30,000th Covid19 death so today is very much a day of remembrance, and as always a day to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our frontline and health care heroes.
From monochrome to colour
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.❤️
And a second little bouquet for our other beautiful granddaughter whom I love just as much, after her first ballet recital today. What a star she is.⭐️❤️
Happy Spring Equinox.
