A new day and a 5-minute addendum to yesterday’s post:
I woke up to the sun. My world immediately feels more accessible when that happens.
I have another personal mountain to climb today, but seeing blue sky and glinting fields was like a turbo-boost this morning… renewed energy.
On the way back from dropping L off at Kindergarten, I remembered how yesterday had begun … I, along with all other parents had been invited to attend a little presentation of what the children have been doing in their Monday music work-shop.
The children were asked to ‘grab your Mummy’ (there were only Mummy’s in attendance) and form a circle. A flurry of excitement later and this was achieved … a large circle, Mummy – Child, Mummy – Child …. and one little boy left all alone in the middle.
His face broke my heart. He said nothing, just stood there until the over energetic leader grabbed his hand and said she’d be his Mummy for the session.
Everyone knew, that the child knew, that however funny she was, it could never be the same.
At the moment I am tired … and grumpy … and we can’t afford holidays or expensive toys, but all things in perspective:
I can be there for my boy. In the larger scheme of things, I hope I can make this count.
