This Week in Photos: LOVE is…

Hello Amazing Souls,

Happy Weekend! I hope that this week has treated you well and that you are ready for a wonderful weekend ahead:). I know I am! This week has been an interesting one. My dad had surgery on Tuesday and was in the hospital till Thursday. We are so grateful that the surgery went well and my dad is now recovering at home. During his hospital stay, I had the chance to visit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (where my mum works) and was overwhelmed by the precious little babies. What struck me was that whether you came in for surgery (like my dad), were just born (like these premies), or for whatever other issue that brought you there, hospitals are a place for the vulnerable self to come and be cared for and/or healed. It’s a place of surrender in order to be restored, rejuvenated, and have rest (a principle that we see everywhere in life). For many, it is a place of recovery while for others it is a place where they enter eternal rest. Hospitals are a place where miracles take place each and every day.

A special thank-you to Dr. Frank Papanikolauo, Dr. Jacob Hassan and the wonderful nurses at Credit Valley Hospital Unit 1A for taking such good care of my dad. Your love and kindness will never be forgotten.

Wishing you and yours the most wonderful weekend ahead and moments after moments that remind you of the beauty and blessings of life.
