I've a 13 year old (Last weekend! Last teenager! Husband went to church to pray for patience and strength- hee hee) who I let wag school today. I'm not bothered. He is so distraught and upset at the world at the moment. Can't say I'm happy either. How do you try and talk to children this age and say it will be okay? I can't promise that. I can't promise them a future where everything will be rosy. Where another country can basically screw the entire world due to their beliefs? I guess I can hope that he does grow up with respect and morals and thinks of everyone around him with kindness and care; that decisions can and will affect others.
Exam tomorrow. I'm not at. all. happy. about that either!
Here's some of my divine sweetpeas - flowers kinda make us happy in crappy times.
