I am Flexible and Flowing
I am open to the new and changing.
Every moment presents a wonderful new opportunity to become more of who I am.
I flow with life easily and effortlessly.
This is true for me and many other mothers of children this week, as it will have been the first week of school for many and the return to school for others.
it is also particularly applicable as MiniMad has his home visit from the head of Preschool amd one of the other teachers tomorrow afternoon.
I had been looking to keep him with me for as long as I could, what with him being my last baby and also the experience he had when I was in hospital, but have come to realise since his big brother went into reception that this would be very cruel and selfish. He wants to spent more time away from mummy, he wants to go to school, he wants to be a little more independent, so I am letting go and trying to embrace the change.
Change is all around us at this time of year and becomes ever more noticeable as the weeks pass that autumn is upon us. The nights are drawing in, the mornings are colder, the berries are ripe for picking, the apples on the trees are heavy, The onions are ready for pulling and the leaves are starting to turn slowly brown.
For me autumn and spring are real landmarks in the calender, they bring both joy and sorrow, joy in remembrance of a fantastic summer time with my children and sorrow in the passing of the light. However, this year I am going to embrace the changes, recognise them and try and find the best in them all. Anyone care to join me?
