You are more than welcome to join me for Shout Out Saturday
What’s it all about?
This the third Shout Out Saturday where I invite you to join in by leaving a link or a comment to something that has had an impact on you recently:
You can leave a link to your own blog, or maybe something you’ve read on someone else’s blog, or tell us about your favourite blogger, or simply share some good news, or even just drop in to say hello….
No strings attached, simply leave a comment, check out the others if you want to, there’s no need to get caught up too much in compulsory sharing or other rules – just keep it family friendly and we’ll all be happy!
Blogging, to me, is all about community, engagement and sharing.Tweet
Remember Saturday can cover any day of the week!
Why this quote?
If you missed my post on Wednesday, Hip hip hooray, it’s Dottie’s first birthday, you might want to pop over and read it first! This quote relates to my granddaughter Dottie being born VERY early, (at 25 weeks) this time last year weighing less than a kilo of sugar, and this week she is happily celebrating her first birthday.
I used this Pooh bear quote in a post written this time last year, when Dottie had just been born and I was on my way over to England (from Australia) to meet her. It was a tough time for us all. This quote rings true now a year later –
From a tiny spark may burst a mighty flame.Dante
Dottie is certainly a tiny bright spark in our lives!
My (2) Shout Outs this week go to….
- Nurses, doctors, carers, specialists, medical support staff, all health care workers in fact – they have such awesome powers in their hands and I will never again take them for granted. I saw them in action during Dottie’s time in NICU, they’ve been extremely busy during the pandemic, my three daughters have benefitted from their handiwork and my grandchildren continue to be treated by a range of caring clever people. My husband was fortunate to have immediate medical attention just a few months ago and my mother-in-law is also currently in their safe hands. I remember feeling a wave of gratitude for my father’s carers in the last years of his life. It is such a noble profession and we should all make an effort to thank them for doing their job.
- I read this interesting piece today and shared it with my sister who is in lockdown in Melbourne: Your surge capacity is depleted- it’s why you feel awful. It talks of ambiguous loss in relation to the pandemic and includes some very wise words and astute observations. Thanks to Denyse for sharing it on her facebook page which encouraged me to read it.
“Our new normal is always feeling a little off balance, like trying to stand in a dinghy on rough seas, and not knowing when the storm will pass.”
What do you think?
