#TellThemYouCare Messages – April 19

#TellThemYouCare Messages – April 19

I live by myself and I am afraid too. You are not alone. I try to write down 10 things each day that I am grateful for – sometime it is silly things, like a cup of tea, seeing the sunshine or the rain. You WILL make it thru until you see your family again! In the meantime, I hope this photo will make you smile. It is my old cockatiel – she is 19 yrs. old and she can be a handful. I recently moved to Chilliwack and Zoe is able to come outside with me and “help” with the gardening. I think she is my Supervisor! — Frances Pylypiw, Chilliwack

Hello everyone! I thought I would send you a photo of my daughter’s Pomeranian puppy who is like a therapy dog for me as well. It is always a mood lifter to have interaction with pets and even a photo is nice to see. I hope and pray that you all stay safe and well during this time, and that we will all be able to get back to normal soon! Take care — Andrea Flexhaug, Penticton

I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. We live in a world that was built on the hard work and committed efforts of our elders and we owe our opportunities and quality of life to people like you who paved the way for us. The seniors of our province can be seen everywhere and your contribution is so important. There are so many people thinking of you guys and wishing you well and I hope that you can feel that in your hearts even when you can’t see it or hear it for yourself. Please take care and stay safe and enjoy the Spring! — Brianne Hagardt, Salmon Arm

I just want to let you know that there are people out their that love you. I know sometimes you feel alone or that nobody cares but you’re wrong. You are loved and most importantly you are no alone. In your long lives you have touched thousands of people, they love you, you have made friends, they love you, you have inspired people, they love you, and you have built families, they love you. So, whenever you feel alone or unloved, keep a smile on your face and remember that you are not alone and that you are loved. Stay strong. — Reegan, Kelowna

We are thinking of you all and are anxious for you as our valued loved ones.   Together we will get through this.  You are not alone and the warmth of positive vibes and virtual hugs are trying to fill the void until we can visit you all again to share stories and laughter and just be…together. — Yvonne Krause, Vancouver

Good Morning. Another sunny day and my thoughts are sunny too. I am thinking about you and wishing that you stay strong, healthy, and happy. Wish i could give you a big hug and hold your hand. Hope that you find all these heartwarming messages uplifting. Sending lots of love. — Sidney Bending, Victoria

Respected seniors, we just want to send our thanks to you for your wisdom and efforts to build up Canada as it became a wonderful place to live. Canada is giving very good life to our international students. We are visitors here from India and are feeling very happy to live in Canada environment and pleased to see very good rules for human rights. We pray to God for your happiness. — Nirmal Singh, Mississauga

Hello! I hope you are well and managing to keep your spirits up during this difficult time. Please know that it is not only your family thinking of you right now, we all are. I hope that it is not too much longer before your loved ones can visit you. I’m also looking forward to when my children will be able to visit again. Meanwhile, I’m spending much of this time playing with my new puppy and kitten, and I’m sending a picture in hopes that it gives you a smile. — Margaret, Clearwater

Thanks for being the amazing teachers that you are.  I owe so much of my knowledge to elders.  It means that I have fantastic “granny skills.” I can knit, sew, can and veggie garden and these are just the skills to keep the world turning when we must fall back on our own resources.  I’m sorry y’all can’t get out as much or have visits with loved ones.  I too miss hugging people. P.S. My Gran was wrong good handwriting is not a pre-requisite for a civilized life and a University degree is not a guarantee of better income. She was right on everthing else! I hope you have lots of fun things to keep you engaged. — Johanna Palmer, Victoria

May your days be filled with sunshine
May your hearts be filled with love
May your hours be filled with pleasure
And with things you are grateful of💞
We have so much to be grateful for even as we isolate and distance ourselves…our family, our friends, our caretakers, our treasures, our memories.  Let’s focus on these things while the world heals itself, and simply enjoy this beautiful time of the year and all it offers to lighten and brighten our hearts!  Wishing you joy, good health, happy days, and peace of mind❤️  from one senior to all others, Regards 😘 — Coreen, Westholme
