Hello hello! Grace here.
Life is unpredictable, eh? I’m sad to say that our Cycle for Survival event last Saturday was canceled due to Coronavirus hitting New York City. As a team we had decided to all go ahead and continue to participate, regardless of the nervous energy surrounding social events at the moment. But alas, the entire event was canceled the evening before.
Rest assured all the money raised is still going to the right place, we just didn’t get to cycle for the afternoon (I still went to the gym and did my bit though!)
In fact, our lovely team of friends raised an impressive $12,310! And that’s all going towards rare cancer research. So thank you to those who already donated! We so appreciate you and your generosity.
I was quite gutted, as I had geared myself up for it. But hey, acceptance is key. Everywhere we look, plans are being changed and life is being thrown up in the air. Imagine how many weddings, funerals, fundraisers, surgeries, events, trips and travels are being affected right now! Not to mention the actual people affected health-wise, and the fatalities around the world. Or the stock markets. All of this = anxiety amongst many.
On the more menial side… We have a big trip coming up in 10 days ourselves for my 30th birthday with a good group of friends, and we are all praying HARD that we won’t have to cancel it. My lovely boyfriend is having a minor meltdown as he has organized the entire thing for my 30th and we’re all in limbo. But what will be will be. And we have zero control over it. So there’s no point in obsessing! There are people in the world with a lot more to worry about right now!
The most important thing is to keep our elderly and more vulnerable people safe. And to carry on with life as best as we can until this all blows over. And hope we all have travel insurance! 😉
It doesn’t sound like our friends and customers at the SEC were too put off! It sounds like it was a success and people still turned up. We carry on!
Speaking of places in the world… I’ve just seen some new stamps that I’m in love with! Here’s a sneak peek at the Three Cities 3-Way-Overlay stamps that our Maria Moorhouse will be showcasing on Hochanda tomorrow – Wednesday March 11th from 12pm UK time (7am EST)
Obsessed! I’m a bit of a international jet setter and these stamps make me feel happy with all of this worldly drama going on. Thanks Clarity!!
This too shall pass.
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
