Today i am sharing K and L for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I took an extra day to enjoy the Easter weekend!
K is for Kind and Kindness
With this crisis, it is never more important to show extra kindness, to choose to be kind. Too many are putting their lives on the line - for us. We need to stay home,; we shouldn't be yelling because we have to wait in line, or spit when we don't get what we want.
"Choose Kind" is a movement that grew from the amazing book Wonder by R. J. Palacio.(Check here for more info)
L is for Live Love Laugh - what we all need to do

Today's letter is I for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
I for Inspire, Inspiration. So many things can inspire us - nature, beautiful music, stirring speeches, special people.
I have always been inspired by art, music, the sea., fascinating books.

Today brings H for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. What better choice than HEROES - and helpers.
We are surrounded by heroes since the covid crisis began - nurses, doctors, paramedics, PSWs, pharmacists, cleaners, shopkeepers, store clerks, food bank helpers, police, firemen - really all those helping to save lives, feed us and protect us. So a huge thank you to all those helpers.
As Mr. Rogers said:
“To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers ― so many caring people in this world.”
H is for Hero
Terry Fox has been my hero since his Marathon of Hope. While I taught, I took part in the Terry Fox run every September and collected hundreds of dollars for his charity. What an amazing man, an amazing feat.

Today brings G for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
And I can't think of a better word to us than "gratitude" in these uncertain, scary times. We need to show our gratitude to all the helpers, all those trying to contain this virus and help heal the sick.
Most days, I list 3 things that I am grateful for. It has been shown that expressing gratitude improves relationships, helps your heart, brain and stress levels and improves your sleep. (Read more here.)
G is for Gratitude.

Days lately blend into each other, so I combined 2 days into one for the A to Z Blogging Challenge - E and F.
E is for Explore
Yes, we are must stay put (or as the premier of Nova Scotia said "Stay the blazes home!), but there is still much to explore:
*books - your own or so many online, even the classics are now available for free
*a new project - art, carpentry, knitting,
*start writing a memoir or novel
*visit the great museums of the world through virtual tours
*catch up on a series you never watched
*learn more about your favourite people
Once you put your mind to it, you'll see there is still much to explore, even from your own home.
F is for Faith
There is no time like the present to explore your faith, to open up to what you believe.
Faith will get me through this, that I am sure.
