"We wonder what a child will become tomorrow...but we forget that they hold their own magic TODAY!!"
The past few weeks have shown me that my kids are each growing up so fast. Not just in size but in maturity also. Growth, developmental growth. Sounds like an English essay? Yes, in year nine at high school that is what my 10,000 word essay was about, growth. Now I understand fully what it was I wrote about.
For me, I reflect on the things I have learnt along the way in life. From very early in life I knew I wanted to be a nurse. Working in the industry from age 16 has not clouded my enthusiasm for my work. I love it.
The day I loose the love for it I would stop doing it. Even if I won the lottery I would not give my job away, I know it for sure.
I hope my children find what it is they want to do in life and grab it and run with it. I hope they are as happy as I am with their achievements as I am. I will not try to live through my kids, but I will always encourage them to do what makes them happy. I hope it is enough.
This time of the year is exciting, and it is also draining physically....the new year brings relief, and hope, hope for a wonderful time ahead.
