Palliative Care Society plans Daist Day

Greetings from Brookdale. We have had quite an Easter surprise.

BROOKDALE Greetings from Brookdale. We have had quite an Easter surprise. We had more snow then we have had all winter. This was the first time Rod had to plow since Jan. 16, just after we arrived home from visiting our boys. Our church service was cancelled.

The Highland Fling buttons are ready and will be circulated at the Auxiliary meeting on Thursday evening.

Marilyn has made arrangements to sell buttons at the Farmers Market on May 4.

The annual Spring Follies by the Friends Unlimited at Trinity-St. Stephens United Church is being held on Friday, April 13. We have tickets to go as it sounds like it will be lots of laughs as usual and, of course, the desserts are always lo-cal and delicious.

The Cumberland County Hospice Palliative Care Society will meet at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre April 16 at 1 p.m. Plans will be made for the Hospice Palliative Care Daisy Day May 4. It is hoped that Daisy Day will be held across Nova Scotia, as the first week in May is Hospice Palliative Care Week. Many areas will be holding Hike for Hospice as well as other events.

The second week in May is not only Highland Fling Week but it is National Health Care Week. The Highland Fling will be held on Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 is Mothers Day. We will have lots of interesting things to buy for Moms.

Our youngest son is flying in for the weekend to help his Dad celebrate his 80th Birthday, as he will be unable to come on the April 28. Our oldest son is flying down for a week, arriving on the 25th and our middle boy and his wife, Joan, are driving down for the Open House at the Brookdale Hall on April 28. Joans mother and stepfather live on P.E.I. so they will visit there as well. Rod is the only boy left in a family of four boys.

We send belated 10th Anniversary wishes to Elizabeth (Betty) and Cecil Moore who celebrated on March 29. Lucas McGraw also celebrated his birthday on March 23. We have nine birthdays in our family in April.

I have been doing a lot of reading lately. One author, Marc Gellman, wrote Gods Mailbox. This book is good for both kids and adults. My second book was by Lois Olmstead called Enjoying the Journey, 90 spirit-lifters for the Potholes of Life.

It not only has a message it makes you smile or even laugh. I am reading Love, Medicine and Miracles by Bernie S. Siegel, MD and it is another an excellent book.

I have an early ay tomorrow so I will leave you with this message from Dr. Bernie: Love makes life worth living. It also increases the likelihood of physical healing, but that is the bonus, the icing on the cake. I am here today because of and thanks to love. I was going to say faith as well but faith is love. Blessings to all.
