Come in, my neighbour, share my bread
Sit, eat, talk and listen to what is said
This is the only meal that we need fed
Come in, my neighbour, you’re welcome here
Sit, eat and talk and I’ll listen to what you fear
The walls of our history will disappear
Come in, my neighbour, all will be well
Sit, eat, talk and I, too, will tell
Of the help I got each time I fell
Come in, my neighbour, the door is open
Sit, eat, talk and I’ll consider words spoken
We are the glue to fix the broken
Today I’m feeling:
Today I’m grateful for:
Amy’s needles and cotton so I can attempt to fix the holes in my favourite t-shirts. I’m not sure quite how it will look afterwards, maybe even worse than the holes but anyway I’m grateful to have the tools to make an attempt!
The best thing about today was:
Some interesting LINE conversations with my students when I ask them what they would like to do when they finish school and university. Rista wants to be a volleyball player as her mum was denied the opportunity to do the same. Aoey wants to be a tattoo artist which is a surprise to me as I don’t think I’ve ever seen her drawing. Anchan, a flight attendant, not unrealistic for her if she pushes herself and Bright wants to be a barista.
What was out of your control today and how did you handle it?
The washing machine couldn’t spin dry the doona so I hung it out wet. No big deals today.
Something I learned today?
I’ve been reading a lot of news today and somehow feel that I have learned nothing.
What do I need to embrace about myself?
I think I’m pretty well embraced. Perhaps that is a sentiment of age, a resignation or acceptance of one’s own foibles. I know what I’m not good at and have a good idea of what I am good at.
