Mental Health Awareness Week 18th May to 24th May 2020
Focus this year is on Kindness, and in Woodhouse and Little and London I’d say you are doing your bit by the bucket load!
As a community your kindness is heartwarming!
You are calling on neighbours, friends, family and us too :))
You are helping where you can, with telephone support, getting a daily newspaper, shopping and gardening for others
You are making meals; baking, making Jams, pickles, fruit cake and tending to the allotment and sharing with others
You are being creative and artistic and sharing this with others.
You are sharing facetime with family and friends, and zooming over a cuppa
You are sharing walks and picnics together (2metres apart) films together, conversations about nature, what you’ve watched, and theatre together
You are sharing interesting articles, digital imagery, messages of safety, poetry, quizzes, memoirs and short stories
You are spreading your kindness with your concern, care, a smile, a wave and in words, silences, and cards
and please share some kindness with yourself too
And you are even making kind donations; financial, and with food and stamps 🙂
And finally you are sharing what its like to be human: your loss, your love, fears, sorrow, wisdom, tears, hope and laughter
