Living Arrows | 38/53

 Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

We have been having a rather difficult time of things with Lacey-Beth at the moment, BUT, despite the challenges we face daily with her, deep down, there is still her sweetness, and this week proved that. 

This young lady, took her sister under her wing, walking her up to her line in the playground, whilst I stood at the gates, to help boost her little sisters confidence. 

Sooner or later the time is going to come, when the teacher asks us Year One Mum's not to walk the kiddos up to the line, and to drop them off at the gate, it happens every year. Well, Lexie-Anna, has been so reliant on me lately, and won't let me leave her at the gate - Lacey-Beth witnessing this, every single morning, took her and helped her get used to it, without me one morning. I stood at those gates, watching my eldest, act like a little mummy hen figure to my youngest, and knew then in that moment, I must have done something right, for them to show that much love, support and encouragement towards one another. 
I couldn't have been or felt more proud than I did.  

(I wish I could have napped a quick snapshot of such a beautiful moment - but due to the playground being busy, it was impossible)

  1. Oh sibling love it's such a sweet thing. I adore how protective older siblings become x

  2. She sounds like such a lovely girl - and I hope the tough times pass swiftly for you all x

  3. Oh, she sounds like such a lovely big sister. I'm still taking my Year 1 boy into the classroom at the moment because he's struggling a bit to settle, I'm sure there'll come a point when the teacher asks us not to take them right in though. #LivingArrows
