Living Arrows 28/52

Living Arrows

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said‘s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.”





Week 28/52 Living Arrows

The wheels on the bus

This week I got the call at work every parent dreads; little one has been in an accident.

A kid had been playing with a musical Wheels On the Bus book and when they went to put it down it caught my little one on the corner of the eye.

No lasting damage done thankfully but in that moment at work 30 miles away you feel pretty rubbish that you can’t comfort them when they’re upset.
