Thank you, RA, for bringing the sunshine to Anna and all of us

Standard

I just learned tonight of the passing of one of our own in the RA community, Anna Paton. Anna was amongst the ladies who got to meet Richard during the Wellington Premiere and later shared wonderful photos along with a lovely post in which she talked about Richard’s smiles being for all of us, for all his fans from around the world. Her words really touched a lot of hearts.

Anna lost her battle with cancer late last month, leaving behind a husband and two children. But her kindness, generosity and willingness to spread the RA sunshine through her own sunny spirit will not be forgotten. My sincerest condolences to her family and loved ones. May they remember and treasure all the happy, joyous times.

Often, when I am feeling low, looking at those wonderful Richard Armitage smiles-the very smiles that have drawn so many of us together-can be uplifting.

The last couple of days–wet, chilly and quite FMS-unfriendly–have not strictly been the most productive for me. However, I did get some rest including actual restorative sleep (a rarity for me) involving several really nice dreams. I got up this morning in a happy mood, moving fairly well. Benny and I enjoyed a good cuddle on the sole day each week he doesn’t have to get up and head to the salt mines.  Amongst his many fine qualities, he’s an extremely cuddly kind of dude. 😉

I’ve been visiting Facebook and snaffling some images and words of wisdom and inspiration I enjoyed, as well as playing with some images of Mr. A. Thought I would share them with you all as I hope you are having a restful, fun, inspiring kind of Sunday (or good Monday, as the case may be).

And some in all ways: looks, personality, character. *sigh*
