  1. Well said Alison, as someone who is considered high risk and of an age where in some countries help will not be forthcoming, it is easy to be overwhelmed and scared and at times I am, and I know my young adult daughters are too. However I have to remember that I am fortunate in being able to self isolate with my family, my husband can work from home most of the time, and as such we are in the best position we can be during this time. It is I think normal to feel helpless in the face of this virus that is causing so much havoc around the world. All our hearts must cry at the stories we read of suffering, panic, brave medical staff fighting for lives but having to make horrendous decisions, our selfless delivery people and others who still have to be out in the world that no longer seems safe and it is natural to do so. We must allow ourselves to shed our tears, and encourage our family members to show emotion too, because bottling it all up will cause more harm in the end. Our stiff British upper lips must wobble a bit during this time that is a fact. Equally it is important to try and find the small often overlooked joys in our days. A bird or squirrel at a feeder, the sun shining, if it is in your part of the world, here it is not. The flowers and signs of spring coming forth among all the troubles of the world. Those signs of spring remind us that life goes on, and we will too, we just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep faith that eventually we will be past all this. There will be much sorrow and heartache, but also I hope an outpouring of compassion and caring. I hope at the end of it, we will find that people want a simpler, quieter world, and above all else a kinder more helpful one. If that came to pass, this time will have a silver lining indeed.

  2. THANK YOU ALISON. A HAND TO HOLD OVER THE WIRES. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. WE MUST JUST DO THE BEST WE CAN AND ALL WILL BE WELL AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS. THANK YOU AGAIN. LOVE TO YOU AND YOURS.
