Much better than chocolate

Best Easter Egg Ever – much better than chocolate!

After a slow start, the Easter holidays have been a fruitful time for the Leaves of Love Crowdfunding.

You, my wonderful supporters have got us up to 33%. This is just so exciting! Thank you. Especially to those not known to me and who believe in the book itself – this gives me the courage and energy to push on over the coming weeks.

I am increasingly aware that if you are a carer, or know someone who is, there are few guidelines, as to what we can do, or what we can expect as we age and approach the end of our life. Even then they often overlook the fact that we can celebrate these later stages of life, garner our experiences and gain new ones. There is much richness and opportunity to be had but we are inclined to focus on the negative.

Enhancing each exquisite moment of those we care for is a beautiful gift. Leaves of Love can be a small ‘pebble in your pocket hand to hold’ ‘as you navigate this new territory. It offers simple stories to illustrate ideas and tips to hold you steady. A life-line.

Thank you again everyone. I ask you to please continue to spread the word – it is making a big difference. As will Leaves of Love.
