The series on Netflix Call the Midwife is wonderful. They actually have nuns on the show; a preacher is one of the regular cast; and dare I say it, people actually pray to God on the show. Very unusual for Hollywood. Except of course it isn't done in Hollywood, it's done by the BBC. I certainly could never imagine our CBC creating a series like this.
Of course there are a lot of lovely babies born, family stories and no swearing. So refreshing.
And today Maureen and I had another lovely time on our weekly visit to the nursing home. We took two patients outside, wore our silly hats again, and sang more songs. It's so good to finally be able to take residents outside again to the garden, where the air is fresh, there is a lovely breeze and sunshine.
I visited one gentleman who I hadn't seen in a while and who is bed-ridden. Unlike many of the other patients we visit on that floor, he is completely lucid. We had a grand visit. He's hoping to be moved to a floor higher up so that he can be with patients who are more like himself. I'm hopeful he will be able to move soon.
We also bought a Mass card for our dear friend who died last week.
I've also been looking at my crisis pregnancy centres report I wrote last year. I like to remind myself frequently about the good these places do for women. It's always good to be reminded of the positive pro-life things happening. And CPCs are most definitely top of the pro-life list.
And last but not least an MP contacted me for information on abortion and the fact that there is no charter right to abortion. I was able to provide the MP with this fantastic site which analyzes the Morgentaler decision.
All good stuff.
