Have a lovely day all mums: young and old, expectant, first timers and experienced; foster, adoptive, birth and spiritual mothers.
Love and Joyful Play to all of you!
….”They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
This year, Earth Day is on April 22nd and I am sure that most kids will have some sort of school activity or project related to this Global event. There are things you can do at home, such as including your children in any Eco friendly initiative you might want to implement . Does your family recycle? Save energy? Have a garden, pets, etc?
You can find on line or at your local library lots of ideas, materials, books and activities related to this subject. We have only one home, this beautiful planet where we live, love and play: let’s look after it.
The dream is alive in our children and their future children .
This week we remember Martin Luther King not by focussing on his being murdered, but by practicing Non- Violence and carrying forward his vision of a better, just and forgiving society. Remembering his famous speech : ‘I have a dream…’ Teach your children about racism, equality and the pursuit of a better society for all.
