In an attempt to teach the girls the value of writing, of expression, of the importance of their voice, and how important and valid who they are and what they feel is, we have started writing in a journal every night. We write down good things that have happened that day, things they are worried about and anything new they have learnt. It is a lovely moment at the end of the day to reflect and the girls have such lovely thoughts and a completely different perspective on life.
So far we are grateful for coffee and gigantic pizza, worried about sore tummy’s and princess’ (?) and are excited about learning circus tricks.
Oh they are so good for my soul.
Our journal is from our dear friends over at Poppies For Grace
