One day it will show up in my memory feed, and it will be a yearly reminder that life is precious and not to take the things we dearly love for granted.

We have so much!
Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone.

Thank you NHS

Having a bit of a tough day, trying to stay in the moment, so did some colouring!

Found out my cousin who’s a paramedic has covid-19. If I’m honest I didn’t think it was going to effect my family but it has. I was naive and thought we were immune!

It turns out it will probably effect someone we know.

I really want to thank the nhs and all key workers! There are so many people coming together in this time of need thank you to all of you! Your all amazing!

We may all loose something or someone to this virus but we are all in this together!

Stay home, stay safe!

I’m here if anyone needs to talk.
