Last Post encouraging our Flowering and Growing before we reach Pentecost

Posted on Facebook, this came to our attention – Be Kind!

As we start to open up…
Please remember:
🛑 Some people don’t agree with opening…that’s okay. Be Kind.
🏡 Some people are still planning to stay home…that’s okay. Be Kind.
🦠 Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening…that’s okay. Be Kind.
💰 Some are sighing with relief to go back to work knowing they may not lose their business or their homes…that’s okay. Be Kind.
😳 Some people already lost their jobs and businesses. Be Kind.
🚑Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off…that’s okay. Be Kind.
📝 Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job…that’s okay. Be Kind.
😷 Some will wear masks for weeks…that’s okay. Be Kind.
💅🏻 Some people will rush out to get their hair or nails done…that’s okay. Be Kind.
❤️ The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay. Be Kind.

We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home…But Be Kind.
If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and Be Kind!
Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story.
So remember, Be Kind.

A different story of blossoming during Lockdown

We remember all with dementia and their carers and family at this time. This story was originally posted on the Alzheimer’s website

Janice is currently living with her 85-year-old dad, Reverend Arthur Parker, who has vascular dementia. During the coronavirus lockdown, they have been walking around the garden and reciting prayers. Now they are raising money for Alzheimer’s Society to support other people affected by dementia.

Sandringham Care Home posted this on Facebook

We have some fantastic links within the community, one of which being our local Methodist Church that we visit every Thursday for a cuppa, a biscuit and a chat! We are missing our coffee mornings over there but it is so heartwarming to know that they are thinking of us! Rev John Purdy has dropped off these as a reminder for our hard working staff that they are all angels! Aren’t they adorable? Thank you to the lady that took the time to knit these, we love them! ❤️

Ruth Storey replied: She’s called Ann and they are amazing as are all of you working in care.🌈

John Purdy replied: Thank you Ruth for the suggestion of angels, caring angels 👼 in Sandringham and Eden House received the first batch of knitted angels today.

Hannah’s Story of Flowering & Growing

Since lockdown started, my family and I have been able to spend more time together. We have time to play games that we wouldn’t normally play and go on new walks. 

However, seeing my friends and the family I don’t live with has become a lot harder. Within a few days we found new ways to see each other through facetime and somehow managed to have a birthday party from separate houses.

Spending time with the family I live with as well as connecting with the people I don’t is helping me through this lockdown. I’ve realised that even though we’re apart, we’re all in this together, and together we will get through this.
