Soaking in Every Moment

I think I’ve said it many times, but I love to stand back and watch life happening before me, whether it is the patients in the wards interacting together or the kids on the ship playing or simple interactions between friends. There are always moments to savour, sweet little pockets of joy. I usually can’t help but tell the nearest person (most often a nurse), “Look!” and point towards the action. It is so hard to capture these moments, particularly when at work since I don’t have my camera on the wards very often, but I have caught a few.

This is what we do all day- love, love, love.

Old friend and a new friend

Squish your nose kisses

Spying love through the window

Smiling faces full of straight, white baby teeth

 “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.” Melody Beattie

How beautiful does Natacha look now? She was My One from screening day

Chubby baby toes

Making my patient and her mama laugh by crawling into the mama's bed

Soothing a crying baby

“Abundance is not something we aquire. It is something we tune into.” Wayne Dyer

A smile breaks all language barriers

Squinty eye smiles


“That which God said to the rose, and caused it laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.” Rumi

Pedicures by a 5 year old

Being invited into a home and seeing love in action


Letting a 7 year old do my makeup

Watching children learn and grow


What are some of your sweet moments?
