My son came home from school the other day and showed me this photo. “Look mum”, he said “I took this photo on my way into school this morning, it reminds me of the path to life!” Wow, I thought great photo, but how can a Year 7 kid think of something so deep?
It’s the path that leads to the school when you enter from the back gates, and instead of playing on his phone or on his iPad, he was in touch with his surroundings and appreciating life. I think that sometimes we can all learn from our kids, take a moment, stop rushing and remember what it’s like to look at the the world through the innocent eyes of a child. Remember how we used to think before our opinions and thoughts became tainted by the expectations of society. Maybe then we will remember that it is the simple things in life that matter the most!
