I’m sure for every parent it’s different, because every child, every parent, every life is different. But for me, some things just still gets to me more than others. Some in a good way… and some in a not-so-good way. Some things bring back good memories, and others trigger the tears.
Woman of God
Mother Theresa said “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.”
Every now and again I love to just let-it-go with my kids. To have a silly moment with Anika, just being carefree – forgetting about her shunt, her wheelchair, her therapy. Or a few minutes of full-on, hardcore play with Reuben – without worrying about work, what he could break or the noise we’re making – he can be VERY loud sometimes.
Sometimes in life, you so desperately want to say the right words to someone in need of “the right” words. You want to really inspire them by saying something memorable… and then you realise that nothing you say will make any difference. Nothing you say will change their circumstances, their aching hearts or their outlook on life.
