88 Year Old Man Uses Cherry Picker To Visit Wife At Nursing Home
We stumbled upon this feel good story from the goodnews_movement Instagram page and it made us swoon. 88 year old Nick Avtges was desperate to visit his wife at the nursing home where she resides. Due to visitor restrictions he had to be creative and enlisted the help of a cherry picker to take him to the window of her room. He did so with caution wearing protective clothing and equipment, but how heart-warming is this?
Roz Purcell Urges People To Ditch The Food Guilt
We needed to see this today. We are big fans of Roz Purcell and love that she champions body positivity. She makes a great role model for young people for this reason. In a recent Instagram post Roz spoke about how shocked she was to see so many people posting about the amount of exercise or calorie reductions that would have to "undo" the "damage" from eating over the Easter weekend. She urges people to ditch the guilt, that life is for living and that you should
"move because you love your body and not to punish it for something you ate"
77 People In Ireland Discharged From ICU
In a twitter post Simon Harris has announced that 77 people have been discharged from ICU following a diagnosis of Covid-19. Harris is calling this the "77 reasons" to stay home and continue to follow the instructions to stay home and follow the public health advice in terms of coughing etiquette and hand washing.
Simon Harris wanted to thank the frontline staff and draw attention to something positive today. He reminded us that these 77 people are not statistics. They are real people in Ireland, with real families who are now on the road to normal life once again.
