On the eve of Nathan’s first day in a new school, I pray that he encounters children who are kind to him. All he has ever known his whole life at school is getting ready to change. You hear the anxiety in his questions that he asks. He is asking if his old friends will be at his new school. He is confused about new friends being there. New teachers, a new classroom, a new layout to the school that he is unfamiliar with. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared. I hope tomorrow is a wonderful day for him.
Madison starts High School tomorrow which brings another set of fears. Hers are more vocal, she is able to express her anxiety. I am so beyond proud of her for facing a huge fear of hers, but knowing she is going to do amazing.
A favorite song of ours is “Humble and Kind”. I hope my kids are always Humble and Kind. I hope if Madison ever saw someone hurting or alone, she would be a friend. I hope if someone sees Nathan lonely or afraid that they might be that friend to him. ♡♡
