Day 6 – The Lonely Road Ahead

BPRO2998As I looked down this somewhat desolate road with no end in sight, I thought about how so many of my families feel this way.

It can feel like you are the only one travelling this path, uncertainty if you are going the right way, in trepidation at what may lay around the corner. A giant buffalo, a brown venomous snake? Much like the brutal bully at school or the venous words sometimes spoken by others who have no concept of what it is like to be travelling this path you have found yourself on.

Truth is even with the threat of buffalo or snake there is equally the opportunity for sweet birds singing their comforting song, butterflies blessing us as they fly by and at the end of the day the most incredible starry skies to share our deepest secrets hopes and aspirations with.

They too lay just around the corner on this incredible journey.

To the parents and children who have trusted me over the past 15 years to take this road with them and enjoy the sweet journey and all the beautiful outcomes we have seen along the way today I  give thanks and gratitude.
