Undeterred Hope, Optimism and Smile
This March photo of our friend Bruno Giacomazzi, taken soon after his first Covid vaccination, reminds us of the tremendous value of positive perseverance. Bruno has made substantial progress from September 2019 when he suffered a severe stroke and spent the next three months in hospital rehabilitation. Determined as always, he faithfully attends speech therapy twice per week and diligently works around the house and yard. Not one to be content instructing from the sidelines, Bruno was right in the middle of these wood-splitting chores with daughter Terri and grandson Luka. Thanks Bruno, for the ‘choosing to focus on ability’ lesson!
We can’t wait to see our Covid-isolated friends this summer!
