Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here
from Love Your Life to Death along with Miss Sadie, our dog .
In late March I made a vlog of our back yard.
It was spring and everything was brown and very snowy. Icy.
This is roughly eight weeks later; I am here talking about the miracles.
The miracles of the seasons.
I just have to share how incredible everything is now. Look at these flowers that just magically appear. Magically appear. The leaves, the trees are so beautiful and full. When I made the previous recording, it was all just cold and damp. Here we are, all of this has just appeared like
The hose is out so I can water all the beautiful flowers and shrubs that I've planted. This reminds me that everything in life is temporary and change is the only constant. You never know what awaits on the other side of dark times, challenging times and grief.
After the winter, and then in the spring it was just barren and icy. Now, I see what I called in, all of these miracles of new living things.
Shrubs that I planted and now everything is just so wonderful. I am thoroughly enjoying this. I invite you to plant a host of plants or anything that will make you smile.
Here, I simply must share with you this beautiful lilac tree. Do you see this tree here? This brings me so much joy. Everywhere I look in my town in our town I see beautiful flowering bushes everywhere.
I invite you to take notice. Take the time to see, take time to plant something. See all the beauty around you and let this be an amazing reminder:
That change is the only constant and after dark times to hard times, beauty could just be right around the corner.
Take care everyone. Bye for now.

Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here with Love Your Life to Death.
This week in Canada is Nurses Week. And actually, May 12 is International Nurses Day, celebrating the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was one of the pioneers of nursing as we know it today. She was incredible. When I reflect back on my 27 year nursing career, I am just in absolute awe of all the amazing, incredible nurses I have met, I had the privilege of working with and that I learned from. So many wonderful, wonderful people.
In the last two years, I often think about all the nurses working through this pandemic (and of course, all healthcare professionals) but especially the nurses who are near and dear to my heart having been my career for more than half my life.
So, today I want to celebrate every nurse, I want to thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do. I encourage you to take good care of yourself, to Just Show Up for yourself always.
I would love, as a small token of my appreciation, to send you a little gift. If you go to our website, HERE and just send us a message saying yes, I'd love an #IJustShowedUp bracelet to remind you to keep just Showing Up for yourself. Why? Because you have value, you matter and you are making a difference.
Today I'm wearing my Muskoka nurses rock shirt (although nurses rock everywhere.) Thank you, thank you, thank you for all that you do. Celebrate you today and everyday
