One of the most important things that COVID-19 has taught us is resilience. Here’s one more story about how life can go on – BEAUTIFULLY – if you take the right precautions and are considerate about others.
When Tarin Bains and her husband found they were expecting, little did they know how unexpected would be the months leading up to the arrival of their bundle of joy. COVID-19 has changed the way we work, shop, and live. After months of limited socializing and meeting family and friends only virtually, the COVID-style, walk-thru baby shower was a welcome change.
For Tarin’s mom, Darcy Sandhu, and sister, Jasmin Dhillon, this was the most precious and, at the same time, a scary period. However, both the soon to-be grandma and soon to-be masi took matters in their own hands and ensured they did everything they could to throw an unforgettable baby shower for Tarin.
From fixed time slots for visits, masks and sanitizers at every table, individually packed snacks, to maintaining a record of all the guests, the event ticked every box on the guidelines set by Dr Henry and the City of Surrey. With a green light from the RCMP and the bylaws, Darcy and Jasmin were worried about how the invitees would react. But to both of their surprise, most of the guests happily agreed to the rules of the event and came to bless the soon to-be mother!
It’s true we can’t live without human interaction. The pandemic has taught us to value and respect each other. If we are considerate and safe, so will be the others.
Congratulations to the Bains and Sandhu families! Thank you for sharing your happiness with us!
