We discussed the fibre section of the food pyramid and how it varies in different cereals and breads . Porridge has the most fibre . We were advised to read labels and cereals and breads for fibre and sugar content . Next session will be next Monday week due to bank holiday . We are looking forward to this .
On Easter Sunday morning we attended the 6:00 Dawn mass. It was a lovely service accompanied by the dawn chorus of birds and i spotted my first swallow hunted fly on the wing. A good way to celebrate the late spring Easter .
On Thursday the 18th we held our yearly remembrance day to remember all those members who have passed away. During the service we lit a large candle to represent the light of the lives of our deceased members. As we called the roll call members reflected and shared memories of these members.
We lit individual candles in their honor as we shared these memories. It was a really nice way to celebrate each of their lives. A member wrote a beautiful piece to read on the day and a staff member recited a Jewish prayer WE REMEMBER THEM.
We will continue to remember them as we continue on our own life journey and always be grateful for having known them.
