Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I posted. What a week it was last week. It was busy and full on. I get so caught up in all the things I do. I don’t stop to appreciate the simple things, the beauty in life.

Well last week I’ve found a few simple things to truly appreciate this thing called life. This all happened at work. First last week marked the start of Spring here in the southern hemisphere. While outside supervising the children I noticed budding flowers from a tree that has been bare during the winter months. I started working at this centre at the end of May, so I’ve only seen this tree bare.

I know God, my angels and guides alerted me to look and see the tree as it blossoms. It’s so beautiful, yet so simple. To notice something as simple as flowers in bloom. I told the children playing nearby what I saw. They saw them and tried to pick them. One boy wanted me to pick him up so he could reach the higher branches.

It’s this child who provided me with the next beautiful moment or rather moments of the week. He’s non-verbal and struggles to communicate. He hadn’t come to me or connected with me in any way; till now. He’s been taking my hand as if he wants me to take him somewhere. He’s also coming to me to give him hugs. If I tell him he might be doing something wrong he looks at me and says, “Aww.” I think he understands. He loves animals and carries as many (wooden and plastic) as he can. He puts them down on the floor or ground and places them all in a row. I think this shows a sense of order, organization and structure. I think this is the start of a good relationship with this child.

So I’m taking the time to appreciate the simple things in life. This keeps me in touch with what truly matters – love.

Blessings to all xx
